In '62 Hey Baby was big enough to send Bruce Channel on a European package tour. During the Liverpool leg some local bands were recruited as support. Backstage Bruce's harmonica player was accosted by one of these supporters. Delbert had to tell him all about his harp techniques, learned him a few tricks and half a year later heard The Beatles' debut single, a copy of his Hey Baby harp solo and all. John Lennon had learned his lesson well. On Anthology 1 there's a Love Me Do they cut in June '62, the first time they saw the inside of EMI's Abbey Road studios.
