You'll Never Walk Alone (The EMI Years 1963-1966)
The Beatles weren't the only Liverpool group managed by Brian Epstein and produced by George Martin; like the Fabs, Gerry And The Pacemakers rode the beat boom to the top of the British charts in the early 1960s, scoring three successive U.K. No.1s (“How Do You Do It?,” “I Like It” and “You'll Never Walk Alone”). Like Lennon and McCartney, Gerry Marsden was a talented writer whose original songs – including “Ferry Cross the Mersey” and “Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying” - were popular on both sides of the Atlantic. The four-volume YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE (THE EMI YEARS 1963-1966) is the ultimate collection from the quartet's original incarnation, featuring all their hits plus rarities and a full live concert from 1964.
