The “Concept Albums” of the late 1960s
The 4 Seasons, The Beatles and The Beach Boys.
These 3 albums changed the sound of most classic Rock that followed.
The Four Seasons: The Genuine Imitation Life Gazette
The Beach Boys: Pet Sounds
The Beatles: Sgt Pepper s lonely hearts club band

The Genuine Imitation Life Gazette:

The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Joe Long

Release Date: 1969
Genre: Rock
Label: Rhino

This wildly ambitious opus lives up to its reputation as the most cerebral album in the Four Seasons' catalog. With the help of young songwriter Jake Holmes, the straightest of pop groups went psychedelic to create a concept album that casts a satirical eye on American life. The end result is often excessive both lyrically and sonically, but it's also relentlessly inventive, skillfully constructed, and never dull. Genuine Imitation Life Gazette never feels like a cheap cash-in because the group chases its cosmic muse without any worry of pandering to commercial concerns.
