Carly Simon Handwritten "Anticipation" Lyrics

Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $3,190.00

One-page sheet displaying Carly Simon's handwritten lyrics, in her hand, to her 1971 hit song, "Anticipation." Ideal for display. This is a flawless presentation of the lyrics to this song which, since its release thirty-five years ago, has been ingrained into the consciousness of popular culture. All of the text has been penned in blue ink, with Carly Simon having signed the sheet twice. In the top right corner she has written "Words + Music by Carly Simon," and along the bottom of the page she has added "handwritten for _ _ _ _ _ _ by Carly Simon." Simon penned these lyrics for a charity auction, with the blank space provided to fill in the recipient's name. Both the lyrics and signatures are flawless in their execution and grade "10." The song "Anticipation" was the title track to the album of the same name, released in 1971. The album was well received by both fans and critics and the following year she won a Grammy Award as Best New Artist. That was also the year she also recorded her greatest hit "You're So Vain." Simon's other honors and awards include the Academy Award for Best Song of 1988, "Let The River Run," and induction to the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1994. The unlined sheet (8 x 11.5 inches) is in Near Mint condition. LOA from Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $3,190.00
