(ACTUAL SCANS)

IN JUNE 1961, A BRITISH SINGER NAMED TONY SHERIDAN RECORDED "MY BONNIE", "THE SAINTS" AND A FEW OTHERS FOR POLYDOR RECORDS IN GERMANY . TONY HAD BEEN ON THE SCENE, PLAYING IN CLUBS IN HAMBURG WITH A NEW BRITISH GROUP, THE BEATLES, AS HIS BACK UP GROUP. IN OCTOBER OF 1961, A 45 OF "MY BONNIE" B/W "THE SAINTS" WAS RELEASED IN GERMANY ON POLYDOR UNDER THE NAME "TONY SHERIDAN & THE BEAT BROTHERS."

THE RECORD SOLD MODERATELY WELL IN GERMANY AND ON OCTOBER 28TH RAY JONES WALKED INTO BRIAN EPSTEIN’S NEMS RECORD SHOP IN LONDON ASKING FOR A COPY OF THE RECORD. EPSTEIN THEN FOUND OUT WHO THE GROUP WAS AND ORDERED THE SINGLE AND SOLD MORE THAN 100 COPIES OF IT. AS HISTORY WOULD HAVE IT, BY THE END OF THE YEAR BRIAN EPSTEIN WAS MANAGING THE GROUP… AND THE REST IS HISTORY.
