Product Description

With the exception of the Beatles themselves, no other group dominated the early years of the British Invasion like Gerry & The Pacemakers. They were the first artists to have their first three singles top the British charts, and many of their songs are now beloved classics. Gerry & The Pacemakers: It's Gonna Be All Right 1963-1965 features 17 complete songs filmed between 1963 and 1965 and is the group's first official DVD release. Included are the classic 'How Do You Do It', 'I Like It' and 'I'm The One', timeless masterpieces 'Ferry Cross The Mersey' and 'Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying' In between the performances Gerry Marsden talks about the songs and tells the band s history in a new interview filmed at the Cavern Club in Liverpool exclusively for the DVD. Also telling the story is Bill Harry, the founder of the original Mersey Beat newspaper in Liverpool that reported the birth of British rock as it was happening. The DVD bonus section includes a new solo rendition of 'Ferry Cross The Mersey' filmed at the Cavern Club as well as a history of Liverpool's Mersey Beat scene as told by Bill Harry. This DVD is one of the first four releases in the British Invasion series and is sold individually or as part of the British Invasion Box set along with Herman's Hermits: Listen People 1964-1969, Small Faces: All Or Nothing 1965-1968 and Dusty Springfield: Once Upon A Time 1964-1969 and an exclusive bonus disc with over 2 1/2 hours of additional content.

Reelin' In The Years Productions, has created some of the best loved and critically praised DVD series on the market today including the multi-platinum selling Definitive Motown series (Marvin Gaye, Temptations, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles), the GRAMMY-nominated American Folk Blues Festival series and the award-winning Jazz Icons series. Now, with Metropolis Studios' Voyage label, they are proud to give the deluxe treatment to one of the greatest periods ever in music--the British Invasion. Each DVD features archival full-length television performances filmed back when the artists were in their prime and at the height of their careers. Interspersed between the performances, original band members talk about each song and recount special moments in the history of the group. In addition, each performance has been transferred from the original master tape and includes best-possible video and re-mastered audio. Each DVD also includes a 24-page booklet with insightful and informative essays by noted rock historians as well as previously unseen photos and memorabilia.


"... a welcome addition to the documentation of mid-'60s music...this set is a giant leap forward from the usual fare, which has tended to be thin on footage and way too long on a short list of talking heads. Indeed, British Invasion's chief assets are the abundance and quality of its visuals and the insights and brevity of its commentaries (from artists and associates-no critics)...Two thumbs up." --, Gene Sculatti, March 5, 2010

"And what audio/visual treats these discs are! Meticulously researched and packaged, expertly restored and annotated and whenever possible hosted by many of the actual participants themselves, the songs and stories flow in never less than quick, LOUD frenzies so perfectly reminiscent of those once-Swinging Sixties themselves...this is one British Invasion which truly concentrates, as all such documentaries should but seldom do, on the MUSIC." --, Gary Pig Gold, March 22, 2010

This DVD nicely covers Gerry & The Pacemaker's history in a way that will entertain both newcomers as well as seasoned fans. It tells the group's story by moving from modern commentary to vintage clip.

Commentary is provided by Gerry Marsden(from the current Cavern in Liverpool) as well as Mersey Beat editor Bill Harry, and fans who plan to purchase the T.A.M.I. SHOW DVD will be happy to know that this DVD doen't include any footage from that Pacemakers' performance.

Gerry's commentary is interesting, entertaining, and informative. It's a delight to watch & you'll learn a lot too.

Sure there are plenty of vintage clips that don't appear on this DVD but what is included nicely illustrates what made Gerry & The Pacemakers unique and, at the same time, inseperable from the Mersey musical scene they were unmistakably part of.

If you don't want the commentary you can just watch the musical clips(two additional performances included) and there are further extras featuring Gerry in one and Bill Harry in the other. Harry also wrote the bulk of the fine booklet notes.

I was honestly surprized how much I liked this DVD. It's great!

It's Gonna Be All Right: 1963-1965 is one of four documentaries released as part of a five-DVD British Invasion box set by Reelin' in the Years Productions. Of the four artists profiled (which also include Dusty Springfield, the Small Faces and Herman's Hermits), Gerry & the Pacemakers might seem the most lightweight. But like all of the artists in this series, what U.S. audiences saw were just the tip of a larger artistic iceberg, and this collection of seventeen vintage musical performances and interviews, television and stage appearances, and contemporary interviews with Gerry Marsden and Bill Harry (founder of the Mersey Beat newspaper) tells more of the band's story beyond their oft-anthologized hits. The Pacemakers emerge as early exponents of Liverpool's beat rock, and an act that vied with the Beatles for the seaport town's music fans.

The parallels between the Pacemakers and the Beatles are many. Both were Liverpool bands with Skiffle roots that turned to covering American R&B. Both honed their live performances in demanding Hamburg gigs, played the Cavern Club, were managed by Brian Epstein, wrote some of their own hits, were produced by George Martin, starred in their own film (Ferry Cross the Mersey), toured America and appeared on the Ed Sullivan show in 1964. The Pacemakers' music wasn't as edgy as the Beatles, and Marsden never really varied from his smiling, sometimes hammy, showmanship as a front-man. The group broke in 1963 with "How Do You Do It?

Gerry And The Pacemakers reset the bar for the British Invasion. Their Beat music was a blast, but when "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying" and "Ferry Cross The Mersey" haunted the radios, it stopped you in a trance. Gerry's great voice was destined for moody ballads with graceful builds. Panoramic but personal. No wonder his cover of "You'll Never Walk Alone" became a stadium anthem moving global crowds to this day.

But Gerry Marsden also rocked and this terrific disc proves it. The energy and melodies of "I'm The One" and "It's Gonna Be Alright" are as contagious as anything from "A Hard Day's Night". His astute taste in American platters sparkles through "A Shot of Rhythm and Blues", "Dizzy Miss Lizzy", and "Skinny Minnie". And of course Merseybeat faves like "How Do You Do It?" and "I Like It" are here to shine. A special revelation is the rollicking piano of amiable Les McGuire, putting the roll into all that rocking.

Between clips the personable and funny Marsden quips anecdotes about early British rock, the Reeperbahn scene, The Beatles, and the Mersey explosion. Also, Liverpool music scholar Bill Harry gives us the big picture. Gerry caps it off with a 2009 solo performance of "Ferry Cross The Mersey" at the Cavern Club that tops the disc like a cherry on ice cream.

"Gerry & The Pacemakers - It's Gonna Be All Right: 1963-1965" (British Invasion series)
(Reelin' In The Years, 2010)
This DVD, available either as part of the fab, gear "British Invasion" box set, or on its own, is an endearing, nostalgic look back at one of the key bands of the early 1960s "Merseybeat" scene. It mixes new interviews with marvelous black-and-white archival footage (including a remarkable performance at a mammoth New Musical Express concert) and can be viewed either with the interviews or just viewing the complete performances drawn from TV appearances and other film sources.

Gerry & The Pacemakers were perhaps the biggest commercial success to come out of the early Liverpool/British Invasion scene (other than the Beatles, of course...) They scored several chart-topping hits, and had a nice way with a catchy melody. In contrast to the Fab Four, who made it all seem so easy, the Pacemakers looked like one of the most hard-working bands in the world -- it was decidedly effortful, but also immensely charming, in no small part because of the band's innately British homeliness. In a 2009 interview, lead singer Gerry Marsden cheerfully recalls how one fan, at the height of the band's fame, came up and thanked him for making "ugly" people look cool... And indeed, like many British stars of the time, Marsden was pretty geefy-looking: that's part of the charm, as he throws himself body and soul into every twee tune he belts out. The Pacemakers mainly played safe-sounding rock'n'pop, but they were a tight band, and Marsden had a delightfully imperfect voice, accentuated by a relentlessly upbeat stage persona.
