Gerry Marsden had the perfect reedy voice to front this vintage British Invasion group. It was what really propelled them since their sound didn't include the close harmonies and/or twanging guitars of the Searchers and some of the other early British bands. Their sound was often pretty middle-of-the-road compared with everyone else in the early stable.
Their initial propellant was the absolutely gorgeously written-and-performed "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying", which is high up on the list of greatest ballads of the last 50 years. It fit in well with the slew of mid-tempo tunes by the likes of the Searchers ("Don't Throw Your Love Away"), Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas ("Bad to Me" and "Little Children"), Peter and Gordon ("A World Without Love"), and Chad and Jeremy ("Yesterday's Gone") from mid-spring of '64. These songs really defined the second wave of the 'Invasion'. It was an expressly magical moment for our young mid-sixties' generation.
When Gerry and the P's got bouncy, they ended up with mixed results. "How Do You Do It" was mediocre at best, though it charted relatively high. "I Like It" followed almost immediately in the U. S. and though pretty much a knockoff, nevertheless surpassed its model by a good margin. And "La La La" never received the airplay it deserved - I think I only caught it once - it was possibly 4 out of 5 stars. I'm pretty sure "I'm the One" charted, but I don't think I ever heard it played.
"Ferry 'Cross the Mersey" was the only other of their ballads that fit into the neat compartment of the 'young sound' - in fact it became kind of an anthem, for obvious reasons.

All of the songs you wanted from Gerry and the Pacemakers are here. Most people would likely want only two songs, namely, "Ferry 'Cross the Mersey" and "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying."

A third song, "How Do You Do It?" also makes for fine listening. However, "How Do You Do You Do It?" is merely on par with one or two of the lesser early Beatle songs, for example, "Tell Me Why." Therefore, it is unlikely that anybody would buy this compact disc solely for listening to "How Do You Do It?"

Ferry 'Cross the Mersey and Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying both have beautiful melodies, easily equal to the finest tunes generated by Simon and Garfunkel or found on the Beatles' Rubber Soul album or Help album.

There is little else on this album of note. The other songs might be suitable to hear once at a high school dance. It is hard to discern any specific style or sound that might be called the "Gerry and the Pacemaker sound."

One gets tired of Gerry's voice, since it is the only one you hear. The singing is workmanlike, all of the songs are sung in the same style--straight singing. The voice does have a characteristic timbre to it, a certain deadpan crispness and clarity.

There are no lively recitatives, no blues shouting, no danger-high-voltage electric organ chords, no scorching lead guitars, and no soaring multi-voiced harmonies.

Ferry 'Cross the Mersey and Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying are, without doubt, FIVE STAR songs. How Do You Do It, is a solid THREE STAR song.

As the other reviewers have had a comprehensive review of the CD and more importantly of the importance of Gerry & and the Pacemekers critical involvement in the 1st wave of the British Invasion (I was 12 years old in 1964 and just could not get enough of it)
My only question in this review is Where is the song "Chills"?----This is one of the most underrated songs not only in Gerry's career but in all of the Brit's Mersey Beat Sound. All of the other Best of's have this song which is a must and the selection on Amazon of Gerry's CD's are plentiful and complete and some also have a little better sound quality as well- so, my recommendation is to check the other samples of Amazon's excellent multi selections available before buying- Also, of note, if you are a Stereo and/or Mono freak (as I am) check out these versions too as they appeasr quite different depending on the recording and the label- For example, some stereo versions have the original vocal in only one channel, while others have remastered it to have the vocals centrally located (much preferred. In addition, some of the new stereo versions mixed sound thin and tinny and in this case (I hate to admit it) i definitely prefer the more punchy mono.
