Description by OLDIES.com:

The Pop-Rock group Gerry & The Pacemakers were ferried to stardom during the British invasion by their (and the Beatles) manager, Brian Epstein. They hit the top of the charts on both sides of the Atlantic with their signature Merseybeat sound which featured up-beat vocals and catchy tunes. "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying" and "Ferry Cross the Mercy" are just two of their hits captured in this collection.

This collection remains the best compilation of Gerry & the Pacemakers material that one can buy domestically in the United States, and far and away is the easiest good one to find. All of the U.S. chart hits are here, along with many of their better album cuts and B-sides, from "How Do You Do It" to "Girl on a Swing," all in excellent sound (this disc was originally prepared by Capitol Records for release on its own imprint, and then licensed to Collectables), and the notes are also quite thorough. There is only one problem with this disc, and that concerns its focus on their American release history. As their music was issued in the United States, Gerry & the Pacemakers represented the cheerful, upbeat, pop side of the Liverpool scene, and the material featured here all fits that definition. The band did have a harder, somewhat more soulful sound, however, and serious fans are advised to look beyond this disc, to See For Miles Records' British CD The EP Collection -- not only are most of the major hits (at least, for the U.K.) represented there as well, but a lot of their harder rocking sides, including "A Shot of Rhythm and Blues" and all of their live EP Gerry In California, are also present. Material that scarcely ever got heard on this side of the Atlantic. Ideally, one would own them both to get a full picture of the group's range. ~ Bruce Eder
