The film has been good for album sales...
Jersey Boys may not be the hit that Warner Bros. wanted it to be, but it's doing wonders for record sales. Billboard reports that the film's release has pushed the original Broadway cast recording of the show up the charts, along with Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons' greatest hits album.
The site says that The Very Best of Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons hit #41 on the chart with 6,000 copies sold, up 457%. It's the highest rank for either Valli or the 4 Seasons since 1967 and 1976 respectively. Meanwhile, the Jersey Boys recording hit #149 with 2,000 copies sold, up 72% and the best week for the album since the last of 2012.
The film's soundtrack released this week and is expected to hit around 15,000 copies sold by the end of the sales week on Sunday.
