The late Tony Sheridan onstage at the Top Ten Club in Hamburg ca. 1961 with the Beatles. You can juts make out Stu Sutcliffe in the distance and Paul McCartney's back (in a gray sweat) at the piano along with Pete Best's drums at the far right.
Time to get this poor blog cranked up again! And, sadly, the occasion is the recent death of the legendary Tony Sheridan. So, here's a double-shot of the early Beatles for you, a version of My Bonnie and Cry for a Shadow both recorded during the Bert Kaempfert sessions in the spring of 1961. The first track one features Tony singing lead with Messrs Lennon and McCartney very much in evidence on the backing vocals while the latter track is the famous Lennon and Harrison instrumental. Enjoy!
