Closeup" is singer Frankie Valli again finding the magic without his Four Seasons, this time in the '70s with two big hits in two different genres. The album is very, very good, and in a roundabout way is a great example of why Clive Davis worked wonders with Bell Records when he turned it into Arista. Former Bell president Larry Uttal had it all in this project, and it should have been much, much bigger - it should have been the album to firmly establish Private Stock Records as a major player

The good news is that Collectors' Choice Music is digitally reassessing Frankie Valli's solo catalog. Some consumers might notice, however, that the reissues are not presented in a chronological fashion. Hence, the incongruous pairing of Closeup (1975) and Valli (1976). Both long players were released in the wake of the vocalist's less than stellar stint as an artist on the Los Angeles based Motown Records subsidiary MoWest.
