Gary Alt: Listen

Ferry Cross the Mersey

(Gerry Marsden)

Listen to radio interview about this song

Although I'm not from Liverpool, I somehow have always got a sentimental feeling when hearing this song. When it came out in the early 60's, hit songs had to be about two minutes long to get airplay. I've slowed it down, added a guitar break, an extra verse and chorus, and generally just let the bluesier feeling linger on.
