First recording session

...before EMI

Location: Akustik Studios, Hamburg, October 15, 1960

Event: A Beatles and Hurricanes recording session. John, Paul, George and Stu played with Lu Walters (of the Hurricanes, also playing bass and signing) and Ringo at the drums. Most likely, the songs recorded were Fever, Summertime and September Song.

On May 12, 1961, the Beatles signed their first ever recording contract. They would be backing Tony Sheridan on the now famous My Bonnie/The Saints single.

Location: Friedrich-Ebert-Halle, Hamburg-Harburg

Event: Aside from the songs on which they were the backing band for Tony Sheridan, the Beatles also recorded Ain't She Sweet, with John on lead vocal, and Cry For A Shadow, a Harrison-Lennon instrumental, both of which can be heard on the Anthology 1 CD.

On June 22 and 23, 1961, My Bonnie, The Saints, Why and Cry For A Shadow were recorded.

The single My Bonnie/The Saints did quite well in the charts in Germany. In January 1962, it could be seen at No. 7 of Hamburger Hitlist.
