Hi Folks, I

’m after a copy (any format) of the 1960s Everton song. It was piano-based and contained:

Oh yes, it’s EVERTON, the greatest team on Merseyside, the gallant Everton, and further

They come from Garson, Walton, they come from Dingle too...’

Is it this one: Everton Cup Tribute 1966? If so, there's one for sale on Discogs - a mere 㿔 + ٠ postage!

Going off the lyrics, sounds like a Mr Glitter pinched it for one of his singles.

While we are on the topic of Everton songs, anyone remember that dreadful seventies one Marching onto Glory? I think the B-side had a snippet of our Manager Gordon Lee thanking the supporters.

There is an Everton CD on Amazon called Forever Everton, has 22 tracks on, including the Marching to Glory and the Cup Final songs. May have it on that CD if you know the title of the song. The price is ٥.99.

Yes, Mike, the last posting by Dennis is the song you are referring to. I did have it at some point along with an LP called The Mersey Boot which was Everton-related on one side and the Red Shite on the other side. Unfortunately lost in the mists of time and house moves now.

Copies of that LP are listed online as well, Steve. Not giving them away, mind.

E-V-E-R-T-O-N is right, and Everton for me. John Dunbar and the team. Think we were the first football team to record a song. And it was recorded in Percy Philips studio in Kensington, where lots of Liverpool acts recorded. Ken Dodd, Billy Fury, and the Quarrymen.

Phil (#11), did Russ Hamilton record his songs in that studio? He was the first Liverpool singer to have a number one hit in the USA with “Rainbow”; the other side of the record, “We will make love”, was a Number One hit in England, this was around the mid-fifties.

No Russ first recorded on Oriele label, he was a Butlins Redcoat as a young man. All good stuff Dave. Our city and its great musical history. Loads of the Mersebeat guys were massive Blues as well. Including Gerry Marsden.
