CD Reviews

1980s re-recordings
Ian Speers | 05/07/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The title of this CD is hopelessly misleading, for while it contains many of Gerry and the Pacemakers' best songs, they are all re-recordings from the early-1980s with Gerry Marsden as the lone original Pacemaker playing. The music itself is not bad, Gerry's voice remains its distinct self, and the remakes are interesting (1980s production values notwithstanding), but there is an overall inferiority in all cases when compared against the classic 1960s masters. Sound quality will be an issue for audiophiles, as there is fairly prominent tape hiss throughout. There are also no liner notes to speak of. If you're a hardcore Gerry Marsden fan, this CD is not an unwelcome addition to your collection (it is the most complete CD issue of his early-80s studio sessions), but the casual fan looking for 60s nostalgia is better off with the British imports "The Very Best of..." or "At Abbey Road", or the American-released "The Definitive Collection"--all superb compilations of the Pacemakers' finest 1960s material, containing everything all but the most loyal fan will need.(Beware that this CD has been re-issued with an identical catalogue number and track listing, but a different cover image of the four Pacemakers sitting on steps outdoors.)"
