Recorded on 22 June 1961 in Hamburg whilst playing as Tony Sheridan’s backing band. This instrumental track has a bit of fun at The Shadows expense, even down to it’s title, and features Pete Best on the drums. It is the only Beatles track credited to Harrison/Lennon. The B side has Tony Sheridan on vocals with John, Paul, George and Pete Best backing him.

The pictures below are of my UK first press which has the matrix numbers NH 52275 A 1 and NH 52275 B 1. The vinyl has numerous marks on both sides, including a couple of deep looking ones on the A side, but plays through excellently, just some odd bits of very light crackle. You’ll see that it also has the word DELETED stamped lightly across the A side label. The original Polydor sleeve is in good condition, it has a name writen in black biro on one side, two or three tears and a 2″ split on one side.

Estimated Value : £50 – £70
