Ferry Cross the Mersey is the soundtrack for the film of the same title. It features music by Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Fourmost, Cilla Black and the George Martin Orchestra.

It was released in 1965 on the Columbia label (Great Britain). It contained the singles "It's Gonna Be Alright" (previously released August 1964) and "Ferry Cross the Mersey" (released December 1964 as a teaser for the film).

A CD reissue in a digipak consists of both the mono and stereo versions of the album. One of the most interesting things about the original recording is the fact that there are no backing vocals - just the lone reverberated voice of Gerry Marsden.
