Label: Polydor Red label

The “The Best Of Tony Sheridan” LP is, as the name implies, a record with Tony Sheridan’s greatest hits. It was released in 1964, and Polydor’s defense it should be pointed out that  The Beatles’ name isn’t mentioned anywhere, neither on the label nor on the cover of this LP.
It includes, however, two or possibly three recordings where The Beatles participate (“My Bonnie - without introduction”, “When The Saints Go Marchin’ In” and “Swanee River - without introduction”).
All of the titles on the LP, except “Madison Kid”, “Ya Ya, Part2” and “Swanee River (without introduction)”, had already been released earlier on records in both mono and stereo when this LP was issued.
As to the first two mentioned, they were released in stereo for the first time ever anywhere on this LP.
“Swanee River” was already released earlier both in mono and in stereo when this LP was released, but with the slow introduction. This was the first time this recording was released without the slow introduction in both mono and in stereo.
As a matter of curiosity it can be mentioned that this LP also contains “Sweet Georgia Brown” (version 1A), a version recorded by Tony Sheridan without The Beatles’ help already in December 1961.
