Very rare Beatles “My Bonnie” 45 in Dallas sale

Here’s one for the encyclopedic Beatles fan: Heritage Auctions in Dallas has its hands on a very rare copy of “My Bonnie,” recorded by singer Tony Sheridan and The Beat Brothers (a.k.a. The Beatles). It will be sold in Dallas next week at Heritage’s music memorabilia auction.
Two things to note: 1) This is one of the most valuable 45s around, the black-label American release on Decca. 2) Singer Tony Sheridan died just last month.
Brian Epstein, the Liverpool record store owner who managed the Beatles, claimed that he first heard of the band when a customer came into his store and asked for a copy of the single “My Bonnie.” (Paul McCartney and others later suggested that Epstein took some literary license with the story.)
It should fetch more than $30,000.
