Don’t Let The Sun Catch You Crying


A terrific version of the Gerry and the Pacemakers’ song by the multi-talented Nellie McKay. It’s so good it makes me want to keep playing it over and over.

Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying


My favorite of the British Invasion groups, aside from The Beatles, The Stones and the Dave Clark Five, was Gerry and the Pacemakers. Though only active for a few years in the first half of the 60s, they had a sound that touched some deeper chords than their contemporaries.  In my opinion, at least one of lead singer Gerry Marsden’s ballads, Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying, was  as good as anything that Lennon and McCartney wrote in that same time frame…and it didn’t hurt that George Martin was the producer on the track.
