October, 1965 - The Four Seasons went into the studio in mid-1965 with the intention of recording an album of Bob Dylan cover songs. Frankie Valli made several attempts at recording Dylan's "Don't Think Twice (It's All Right)", however, he was unhappy with how it came out. Finally, Valli decided to record it in a joke falsetto voice.
Philips Records decided to issue the "joke" recording of "Don't Think Twice" by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons as a single, but under the name The Wonder Who?
The Wonder Who?'s version of "Don't Think Twice" peaked at number 12 on the Hot 100 singles chart.
"Don't Think Twice (It's All Right)" was written and recorded by Bob Dylan at age twenty-two. It was originally released on his second album, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan. Read a review of this album here.
Listen below to Dylan's original version of "Don't Think Twice" along with a live version from 1964 and Australian Gary Shearston's 1965 recording.
