Official release information:
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 15 complete songs filmed between 1963 to 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” and the number one anthem “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. 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.
