The Beatles' first recording contract has been sold at auction in New York for 75,000 dollars.

The 1961 contract resulted in the single My Bonnie, a rock-and-roll version of a children's song.

It was released under the band name Tony Sheridan and the Beat Brothers, but caught the attention of Brian Epstein, who became the band's manager.

The six-page contract was sold by the estate of German Beatles collector Uwe Blaschke, who died in 2010.
