This line in the Intro[edit]

Gerry and the Pacemakers are the second most successful group from Liverpool to hit the US pop charts, behind only the Beatles.[citation needed]

Really, delete it, because they didn't even have a number one hit over the Big Sea. And many british Invasion bands had nr. 1 hits and the stones and co also had many of those singles places. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.79.148.50 (talk) 10:05, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

I haven't checked for accuracy, but did you notice the words from Liverpool? Liverpool is one city, not the whole of Britain. Ghmyrtle (talk) 13:07, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Gerry & the PacemakersGerry and the Pacemakers – I don't see why "and" should be replaced by the "&" sign. The band doesn't even uses it that way. E-Kartoffel (talk) 19:25, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Chart positions[edit]

The releases and chart positions given (separately for the United Kingdom and United States, for some bizarre reason) do not give a world view of the group's success. The group charted in a number of other countries, including Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands (the German version of this page, for example, gives a far better listing). The discography section really needs reorganising into the usual form, combining the country releases into two tables, one for singles and the other albums (and possibly further tables for compilation albums, box sets, etc), and expanding the international chart positions. See, for example, Kylie Minogue singles discography, Kylie Minogue albums discography or Olly Murs discography for how this is normally done. Skinsmoke (talk) 06:44, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

I've had a go. It's very complicated, because the UK and US singles were often released in a different order, with different B-sides, and so on. And, generally, the UK and US albums were different. But, I've done my best to make sense of it - if others can improve it, or prefer the previous version, we can discuss it here. Ghmyrtle (talk) 11:47, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
