A: My Bonnie
B: The Saints

One of the rarest of Beatles U.S. records.

Both Tony Sheridan and The Beatleswere British acts imported to play long hours for the raucous crowds at the Kaiserkeller and The Star-Club in Hamburg's seedy late-night district. The Beatles at that time included StuSutcliffe on bass and Pete Best on drums. German bandleader Bert Kaempert saw Sheridan as a rising star and arranged a recording contract with the Beatles as his backup band. The nine songs thathave surfaced from those sessions feature Sheridan singing lead on seven, Lennon on "Ain't She Sweet", and one instrumental, "Cry fora Shadow". The biggest hit from the session was "My Bonnie", which peaked at #5 in the UK, credited to Tony Sheridan and The Beat Brothers.

In 1962 the Beatles were already becoming stars in the UK, but this US release proved the US wasn't quite ready for the Beatlemania that would follow two years later. The record went nowhere commercially; in fact, promo copies actually outnumber the commercial copies because all but a few of the latter were just trashed! Now it's a highly sought-after rarity!

The best estimate is that only 20-25 copies exist. Of the two label styles that exist for this record, this version having the bolder print and the selection number '31382' in the color bar area of the label is the scarcest.
