Liverpool stars aid football disaster fund

Club Sandwich 52

            As many outside Britain will know, 95 Liverpool fans were crushed to death at a football match in Sheffield on Saturday 15th April. Everyone wants to help after such a disaster, but the question is 'how'.
            Pete Waterman, of the vastly successful Stock Aitken Waterman writing/production team, drives to Liverpool every week to present a Saturday morning show on Radio City. On the day in question Pete's show reflected the city's good-humoured anticipation of Liverpool's Cup semi-final and the chance of a Final against local rivals Everton. Driving home that afternoon, he heard the tragic news on his radio and turned back to Liverpool to see what he could do.
            Most requested record by dis-tressed listeners was not the football anthem 'You'll Never Walk Alone', but 'Ferry Cross The Mersey'. Pete decided a charity version must be recorded and immediately contacted Mike Stock to prepare the backing track.
            Paul too was anxious to do some-thing, so was delighted to get the call from Pete Waterman. He immedi-ately accepted Pete's suggestion and the logistics of recording Paul's con-tribution were sorted out between them there and then.
            Good intentions aren't enough: like any other single, a charity record needs the right ingredients to make an impact. Pete decided the public had become used to 'massed choir' charity records and so chose five Liverpool artists to give a personal, less crowded effect. The others were Gerry Marsden, who as com-poser and copyrightholder waived all his rights, Holly Johnson (once of Frankie Goes To Hollywod) and the Christian brothers (band name: the Christians).
            The single was released on 2 May. B-side is 'Abide With Me' from the Liverpool Cathedral service the day after the tragedy. There will be no video or photos of the recording sessions and the sleeve carries some suitable symbol of the event, rather than pictures of the artists. We dearly hope the record is high in the charts by the time you read this.
