Beach Boys Catalogue Found in Florida Storage Unit

beach_boys

When the Beach Boys sang, “Don’t Worry Baby, Everything Will Be
Alright”, they didn’t realize just how applicable those lyrics would be to the
buyer of a storage unit in Florida decades down the road.  A Beach Boys fans’ dream storage unit went up
for auction after its renter defaulted on the storage payments. A couple of
local music promoters gambled away a few hundred dollars on the unit, the
contents of which may net upwards of ten million dollars. “This archive is like
the Bible of the Beach Boys career,” said Ted Owen of the auction house ‘Fame
Bureau’, and due to its sheer volume it’s safe to say that’s an accurate
comparison. The collection of sheet music, photographs and handwritten lyrics
is purely overwhelming, encompassing some 150 songs and represents a
significant moment in music history.
Photos of the band on their travels offer a rare glimpse into the lives
of these future icons of Pop music and seem impossible to be valued, but
$10,000,000 ought to do the band and their works justice.
