LATEST: The Wizard of Oz star Judy Garland's childhood recordings failed to sell at a Los Angeles auction yesterday (17DEC06) when bidding did not match the minimum price.
The songs were taped in a Hollywood recording studio in March 1935, when a 12-year-old Garland sang GOOD SHIP LOLLYPOP, OBJECT OF MY AFFECTIONS and DINAH, accompanied by her mother on piano.
But bidding at Bonhams And Butterfields auction house reached just $22,500 ($11,500) - well short of the $40,000 (GBP20,500) expected price.
The unnamed owner of the two previously-unheard acetate discs, which were discovered in the rubbish at one of Garland's former homes in Beverly Hills, is expected to attempt to sell them again in the near future.
Garland died in 1969 of a prescription drug overdose. She was 47.
