 THE BALLAD OF DIXIE DEAN

Gerry Markey, 1996.  
 
The lead track on a special cassette marketed by the Liverpool Echo for Christmas 1996 celebrates the greatest goalscoring phenomenon in the history of English Football: Everton's Billy Dean, better known by his unfavoured nickname, "Dixie" Dean.

Brian Labone admitted that The Ballad of Dixie Dean filled him with emotion when he first heard it performed live by Markey. Dave Hickson idolised Dean and believes that every Evertonian should revel in this story of the greatest centre-forward of them all. Strangely, the song avoids mentioning Everton anywhere in the otherwise excellent lyrics...

The cassette includes two other Merseyside songs in the folk style:

  • Yates's -- the story of a unique Liverpudlian watering hole.
  • Sweet Liberty, winner of the John Lennon Song Writing Award, written for the millions who have emigrated from Merseyside -- in the hope of a better life?

Original Price: £3.99 from The Liverpool Echo and Daily Post

 

FOREVER EVERTON

Cherry Red Records, 1996CD GAFFER 5

 

A priceless collection of 22 Everton songs, including most of the tunes that accompanied Everton's great teams of the 1980s, and some more recent original numbers.  Some of the sources are obscure, despite the lengthy liner notes by Graham Ennis (editor of When Skies Are Grey).  The full list of tracks on the CD is:

  1. Theme from Z-Cars (Everton Mix) – Gwladys Street End
  2. Duncan, Duncan Ferguson – Duncan's Army
  3. All Together Now – Everton FC 1995 FA Cup Final Squad
  4. Spirit of the Blues – Everton FC
  5. Forever Everton – Joe Fagin
  6. Here We go – The Everton Army
  7. Everyone is Cheering The Blues – The Everton Army
  8. March of The Gwladys Street Gladiators – The Everton Army
  9. Royal Blue Jersey – The EFC Away Crew
  10. In Our Everton Homes – The EFC Away Crew
  11. Dixie Dean – Billy Maher
  12. The Toffees Tale – The Strand
  13. Raise Your Voice for Everton – The School of Science
  14. (We're Forever) Everton – The School of Science
  15. Rhapsody in Blue and White – The Toffee Rappers
  16. Rap of Honour – The Toffee Rappers
  17. Born to be Blue – Mr Freaky and Funky and Dave W
  18. The Boys in Blue – Everton FC 1984 Cup Final Squad
  19. Marching to Glory – The Everton Supporters
  20. Everton's The Name – Jenks Banjo Band
  21. Ever Blue, Ever True, Everton – The Blue Heckle Boys
  22. Theme from Z-Cars – Gwladys Street End

The version of Everton's timeless battle-cry , Royal; Blue Mersey, is just excellent.  An extra verse brings this song bang up to date.  And the source of those Lapland tones from The School of Science can now be revealed as none other than Osmo Räihälä, a talented musician from Finland, and obviously a dedicated  Evertonian.

Retail Price: £11.50 on CD; £8.00 on cassette, from the Everton Megastore / Mail Order

ALL TOGETHER NOW

Everton FC Cup Final Squad, 1995DEVCS 3
 
Cup Final songs are never musical masterpieces but this was better than many.  Excellent lyrics from "Keith and Joey" combine well with dramatic Radio 5 Live commentary snippets for each of Everton's four stunning semi-final goals that stunned Tottenham Hotspur.

The tape and CD single contains two tracks, the second subtitled The DIY Mix: spot the difference... if you can.

This may no longer be available at the Everton Megastore.

 

EVERTON – THE SCHOOL OF SCIENCE

Subterranean, 1995

The original songs on this obscure tape were written by John Bryan in 1991 and appear to have been featured in the musical, 99 Heyworth Street.  The first track has been updated for this funky enterprise:
 

  1. School of Science '95 including Everton, Oh Everton.
  2. The World Will Be Your Friend, sung by Johnny Kennedy

Despite its poor audio quality, the tape is well worth getting for the unique Everton lyrics of the first track.  However, the second track sounds like Les Miserables meets Hear My Song...

Retail Price: 50p from the Everton Megastore / Mail Order
