Silence is Golden

This is my instrumental cover of “Silence is Golden”. Most people remember this lovely song as a 1967 hit for the British group, The Tremeloes. It reached #1 in the UK and #11 on the USA Billboard charts.

However, the song was first recorded and released in 1964 by the Four Seasons as the “B” side to “Rag Doll”. It was composed by producer Bob Crewe and group member Bob Gaudio. With Bob Crewe often assisting with lyrics, Bob Gaudio wrote a string of hits for the Four Seasons, including “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Walk Like a Man”, “Dawn (Go Away)”,”Ronnie”, “Rag Doll”, “Save It for Me”, “Big Man in Town”, “Bye Bye Baby”, and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”.

The original Four Seasons arrangement was not changed much by the Tremeloes for their hit.
