If any band looked as though they would challenge the Beatles in the charts in 1963, at the start of the Merseybeat era, it was another Liverpool group from the Brian Epstein stable – Gerry and the Pacemakers. They consisted of lead singer Gerry Marsden, his brother Freddie Marsden, Les Chaswick and Les Maguire. Although also comprising of four members, the Pacemakers differed from most bands around Liverpool at that time, as they used piano, as well as guitars. Their first three singles famously made number one, but despite Gerry Marsden proving himself an excellent songwriter (penning “It’s Gonna Be All Right,” “Ferry Cross the Mersey,” and the beautiful, “Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying”) chart success was sadly almost over by the end of 1964. So, a short lived, but remarkable chart career – which included success in the States - and Gerry Marsden is still touring today.

“How Do You Like It?” is an extremely strong debut album, obviously released to capitalise on three number one singles and also produced by George Martin. The track listing is as follows:

A Shot of Rhythm and Blues
Jambalaya
Where Have You Been?
Here’s Hoping
Pretend
Maybellene
You’ll Never Walk Alone
The Wrong Yo-Yo
You’re the Reason
Chills
You Can’t Fool Me
Don’t You Ever
Summertime
Slow Down

Although Gerry Marsden is not yet showing his song writing potential (the Pacemakers famously having a number one hit with the song, “How Do You Do It?” which the Beatles rejected), this is a great album. It is a great blend of cover versions, with Marsden’s vocals sounding strong and the band really tight and together.

Gerry and the Pacemakers were one of the essential groups to come from Liverpool in the 1960's. Like the Beatles, they were signed to EMI by George Martin, who was one of the producers of this, their first album. The key to their sound is Gerry Marsden's sound, a rich, thrilling, unsubtle tenor. The band had played in clubs in Hamburg, like the Beatles, which no doubt encouraged their tight, rhythm rich sound. In addition to the rocking numbers, there are two show tunes, Walk On from Carousel and Summertime from Porgy and Bess (I know, this is really an opera.). The producers added a string section to these selections, as Martin later did with the Beatles. Marsden's singing here is very winning, and I believe it was this version of Walk On that led it to become a favorite of British Soccer fans. My only reservation about the album is that the stereo cuts often switch into monaural when Gerry isn't singing. It sounds awkward, but the monaural takes are also here if the stereo technique is offputting. This is a prime CD of British Rock.
