• Hailing from South Shields, Tyne & Wear, Gerry Monroe was an MOR singer who enjoyed huge popularity in the UK at the start of the 1970s, scoring five Top 20 singles.

• He’d been spotted on TV show Opportunity Knocks by noted songwriter/performer/producer Les Reed, who signed Gerry to his label Chapter One.

• Gerry’s high, distinctive falsetto was most famously heard on ‘Sally’, his remake of Gracie Fields’ 30s classic which reached No. 4 in 1970.

• ‘Sally’ was followed into the charts by ‘Cry’ (No. 38), ‘My Prayer’ (No. 9), ‘It’s A Sin To Tell A Lie’ (No. 13), ‘Little Drops Of Silver’ (No. 37) and ‘Girl Of My Dreams’ (No. 43).

• This new 2-CD set is the first time that all of Gerry’s Chapter One recordings have been compiled, including four albums and various B-sides.

• The sleeve-notes include quotes from Les Reed.
