Contrary to the CD label, the outside packaging, inside booklet, and the reproductions of the original album artwork, this album is NOT mono. I was pleasantly surprised to find all the tracks are in true stereo.

"Ferry Cross The Mersey" soundtrack contains three non-Gerry tracks by The Fourmost, Cilla Black, and the George Martin Orchestra.

An excellent mid-tier 60s British invasion band from Liverpool, this 58 minute, 2002 re-mastered disc features their only 2 UK album releases from 1963 & 1965 in full stereo (pay no attention to the Amazon listing). Their 1st album’s stereo mix (tracks 1-14), although not that god-awful simulated stereo of the era, has most of the lead vocals on the right channel; this album was released in the U.S. scattered over their 1st 2 albums (on the 4 album set listed below, but they are all in mono on that set - you will need this U.K. release to get the songs in stereo). The 2nd - Ferry Cross the Mersey - has fantastic stereo sound; since this is a soundtrack, there are only 9 (of 12) songs by the group. Unlike their 1st album, Gerry Marsden wrote most of their songs on here, and it contains several songs that rank among the upper echelons of Merseybeat (It’s Gonna Be Alright, Think About Love & I’ll Wait for You – the last 2 rank right up there w/the best of the Beatles’ catalogue of that era). If you remember this band from the 60s, you will be missing a lot of their hits since many more of their songs were on U.S. albums, so you will need to supplement this w/the BGO (Warner Music UK) 2015 2 disc release w/4 U.S. albums (You’ll Never Walk Alone/Second Album/I’ll Be There/Girl On A Swing). If you love the Merseybeat era, you definitely need this in your collection (even if you have the original vinyl, you must have the re-mastering). Comes w/a 6 page booklet w/reproductions of the original front/back album covers, but unless you have 20 year old eyes, you will need a magnifying glass to read the tiny print (there was a lot written on the back of those albums!).

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.

This package includes the Pacemakers first two UK albums: "How Do You Like It?" in 1963 and "Ferry Cross the Mersey," which was recorded for their feature film in 1965.

"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.

The Ferry Cross The Mersey LP contained many good songs only available on that particular LP. It also featured songs by other groups appearing in the fun and fab movie itself. It does NOT contain the song sung by Cilla Black in the film, but it does contain a George Martin instrumental, "All Quiet on the Mersey Front," which in my opinion is better than Cilla's song. This is the only place I know of to find some of these songs on cd.
