Christie's is holding a Show Business / Rock and Roll memorabilia auction on December 17th at Rockefeller Center in New York. No Lightfoot but lots of neat stuff. Go to http://www.christies.com/auction/cal...2004&location=
and click on December 17 "view items" for a list of the 411 lots. For example, lot 213, expected to fetch between $500-$700 is described as follows:

ERIC CLAPTON, DONOVAN, CARL PERKINS AND OTHERS LYRICS AND AUTOGRAPHS
1950s - 1990s
A diverse collection of signed sheet music and handwritten lyrics, including sheet music for "Layla" signed in red paint marker "Eric Clapton," handwritten lyrics for "Mellow Yellow" by Donovan, signed at the bottom of the page, a vintage piece of sheet music for "Blue Suede Shoes" signed by Carl Perkins and dated 1992, and a separate page of handwritten lyrics to "Blue Suede Shoes" done by Perkins. Also present are Aimee Mann's handwritten lyrics for "Love In A Vacuum," Les Reed handwritten sheet music, also signed by Tom Jones, for "It's Not Unusual," Kenny Young's handwritten lyrics for "Under The Boardwalk," handwritten lyrics for Soul Asylum's song "Beggars and Choosers" and Ian Gillan's handwritten lyrics for Deep Purple's "Any Fule Know That."
8 x 11 to 9 x 12 inches


Therer are all sorts of items, from subpoenas and contracts to posters, photos, clothes, checks and passports, even - for those of you old enough to remember it - a Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award (for the person who has everything else <g> ) Want an ape costume from The Planet of the Apes? Bid on it here. Ditto a signed, nude Janis Joplin (#240). Lots of Presley, Beatles, Dylan etc.
