Hits U Missed #2 – Stealer's Wheel "Everyone's Agreed That Everything Will Turn Out Fine"



Here's the rare, single version of "Everyone's Agreed That Everything Will Turn Out Fine," written by Gerry Rafferty and produced by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller on A&M Records.

It came out in 1973 after the first Stealer's Wheel album, the one with "Stuck In The Middle With You."

But when they recorded their second album, "Ferguslie Park," they re-did this song.

Unfortunately, the album track is the one that's used on every Stealer's Wheel and Gerry Rafferty compilation and this superior version (recorded by the band pictured above, which had split by the time of the second album) is nowhere to be found.

This stereo version was only issued on a promo single.

I recorded years ago the stereo singleversion and digitalized it lately at 192Kbit. If you like a copy please mail me at leenvaar@gmail.com.

My brother found the 45 rpm for me years ago, but it is great to have it available online. Why in the world they decided to re-record is a mystery, as the original is so vastly superior with all of the Beatlesque touches. Thanks for posting it.

Thank you SO much for posting this. I have been looking for this version for years and had myself almost convinced that it did not exist. I taught myself the guitar part and when I purchased the Steeler's Wheel greatest hits, was disappointed to hear that the song was different than I had remembered it. thank you for resuuring me that I was not crazy.
