Back 2 Back Hits

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Gerry & the Pacemakers were more than a one-hit wonder, but many casual fans of the British Invasion wil only remember a handful of their songs -- "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying," "How Do You Do It?" and "It's Gonna Be Alright."

Gerry & the Pacemakers were more than a one-hit wonder, but many casual fans of the British Invasion wil only remember a handful of their songs -- "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying," "How Do You Do It?" and "It's Gonna Be Alright."

Gerry and Freddie's hits may have been few, but they make for a good Back 2 Back Hits disc, since both artists are represented by five tracks apiece on this compilation. True fans of either group will likely want comprehensive collections concentrating on individual artists, but this disc is ideal for budget-minded casual fans who just want these particular hits on one disc.
