Bid for Garland records is rejected

From the Associated Press

A pair of records made by Judy Garland as a child from her first studio recording session have failed to sell at auction.

The top bid for the acetate discs, recorded in March 1935, was $22,500, failing to reach the minimum amount, Levi Morgan, a spokesman for auctioneer Bonhams & Butterfields, said this week.

The records, which have never been heard in public, feature renditions of four songs sung by 12-year-old Garland in her early vaudeville shows.

Morgan said Bonhams might work with private collectors to broker a deal for the records.
