    Description

    Beatles "My Bonnie"/"The Saints" Rare 45 Group (UK- Polydor 66833, 1962). Just how early was this early Beatles release? Both George and Paul were still teenagers! It had come out earlier (1961) in Germany as by Tony Sheridan and the Beat Brothers, then became the very first UK Beatles record and the very first record anywhere using the name The Beatles, undoubtedly encouraged by the group's new manager, Brian Epstein. Polydor released the UK version on January 5, 1962, making it also the first appearance of the "English intro" version of "My Bonnie." Originally it sported a label bearing a smaller font stock number with a "DELETED" stamp. Months later, a second pressing showed a different font for the label. Our resident Beatles expert says the first pressing is "ultra-mega-stupid rare" so we expect spirited bidding here, with this offering of both pressings. Condition: First Pressing: NM 8; Second Pressing: EX 7.
