    Description

    Beatles (Tony Sheridan and the Beat Brothers) "My Bonnie"/ "The Saints" Rare 45 (Decca 31382, 1962). It's the rarest of the US Beatles singles, including the pink label promo version of the record, a copy of which follows momentarily. "My Bonnie" attracted virtually no takers in the US when originally released, and most of the few copies pressed were trashed, which explains why the promo copies actually outnumber the stock commercial version. Only when Beatlemania began in the States in earnest in 1964 was the record re-released on the MGM label, and, riding the coattails of the Capitol and Vee-Jay releases, managed to climb to #26 before quickly falling off Billboard's Hot 100 charts. As collectors became historians, the release attained more and more stature as an extremely rare item. Educated speculation: as little as 20-25 copies in existence! And this is one sweet copy! Condition: NM 8/ NM 8.
