David and Jonathan were actually….

….Roger Greenaway (David) and Roger Cook (Jonathan) who enjoyed this big hit penned by the Beatles but endured as producers and writers.  Roger Cook penned many songs for others – some more commercially notable being “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing” by the Hillside Singers, “I Was Kaiser Bill’s Batman” by Whistling Jack Smith (England), “Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress” by the Hollies, “Softly Whispering I Love You” the English Congregation, “You’ve Got Your Troubles” the Fortunes, and “I Believe in You” Don Williams.

Check Out These Two Beatle Items Up for Bids on….

….Ebay by Beatle Collector Extraordinaire – Perry Cox.  Both of these items were posted this week and as you can see – the bidding is serious.  The sealed Beatle Butcher is more than extremely rare – with only a few copies ever surviving the Capitol Records recall.  Perry is including a copy of the recall letter and his own highly trusted certification letter – The “My Bonnie” commercial release is much more scarce than the promotional issue.  This is the single containing the “Beat Brothers” misnomer.  We will keep an eye on both for the final bidding results.

The Bidding is Under Way!

The Beatles held onto the top spot once again with “Yesterday”.  Chad and Jeremy inched onto the charts with “I Have Dreamed”, which would go nowhere and was the flip side of “Should I” which would go even more nowhere peaking at #128.
