When Raymond Met Brian On October 28, 1961, a young eighteen-year-old entered NEMS, the largest record store in Liverpool and asked the manager if he had “My Bonnie” by the Beatles in stock. Without realizing it, this young man, Raymond Jones, had just changed the life of Brian Epstein! Epstein, the owner of NEMS, inquired about the identity of the group, the origins of the record, and finally discovered that it had been recorded in Germany by a band native to Liverpool. Intrigued, he decided to go hear them play at the Cavern Club, where they performed on a regular basis.

Production It was the second song performed by George on the album, after “Do You Want to Know a Secret,” and it was the first song in which you could hear three-part harmony.
