  3. Talkng of October 1961....
    At about three o’clock on Saturday, October 28th, 1961, an eighteen-year-old boy called Raymond Jones, wearing jeans and a black leather jacket, walked into a record-store in Whitechapel, Liverpool, and said: ‘There’s a record I want. It’s “My Bonnie” and it was made in Germany. Have you got it? It's by a group called The Beatles.’

    1. Hi lemonflag,
      I don't think I have that one... only joking. :)
      It didn't show up in my lists of 1961 hits in America and UK. That is the only reason its not included.
      Thanks for the great story.. and then what happened. WOW!

      Cheers.
