First known recordings at age 12 of Brian's friend Judy Garland

article at website

The first known recordings made by The Wizard Of Oz legend Judy Garland are going on the auction bloc later this month with an expected price of 40,000 dollars.

Garland made the acetate discs in 1935 in a Hollywood recording studio at age 12. Accompanied by her mother on piano Garland sang the song Bill from the musical Showboat, and a medley of Good Ship Lollypop, Object of My Affections and Dinah.

The two recordings were thought to have been destroyed but were found during a clearout of a house once owned by Garland, who died in 1969.
The discs will be sold at the Los Angeles branch of auction house Bonhams and Butterfields on December 17.

Brian Epstein adored Judy Garland. Judy attended parties at Brian's and at Alma Cogan's homes.

The first movie that Brian ever saw as a child was The Wizard of Oz ~ it had an enormous effect on him and opened up his eyes to a whole new world ~ so of course he was particularly thrilled to have Judy as a friend.

...or, as I like to call her, "Liza's mum."
