LONDON (AP) — A cache of apparently forgotten material dubbed "the
lost archive" of the Beach Boys, one of America’s greatest and most
commercially successful bands, is being put up for auction.

The collection of thousands of documents included what seems to be
the band’s first royalty check, for $990, dozens of signed contracts,
and handwritten and copied scores to "Good Vibrations", "California
Girls" and many other hits from their heyday in the 1960s.

A group of investors is seeking to sell the entire collection as one unit
with the expectation that it will bring several million dollars.

"We thought it would be a crime to break it up," says Ted Owen, who
heads the Fame Bureau, the London-based firm handling the sealed-
bid auction which ends on May 15.

Laurie London

A 13 year old British teen named Laurie London had the most played
song in the US with an up-tempo version of the Gospel song "He’s Got
The Whole World In His Hands". Although the record was a hit on both
sides of the Atlantic, none of London’s follow-up releases made the
Top 100 in America, nor made much of a splash in the UK.

By 1966, he would leave the music business to run a hotel called The
Angel, in Petworth, West Sussex. London turned 69 in January.
