'Candle in Wind' Score To Be Sold
Oct. 20, 1998
LONDON (AP) _ George Martin's score for Elton John's ``Candle in the Wind '97'' _ the best-selling single of all time _ will be auctioned off for charity.
The arrangement, written in a hurry by the legendary Beatles producer last year for the tribute to Princess Diana, is expected to fetch about $100,000 when Sotheby's holds the sale in New York in December, the auction house said.
A special award from the British Phonographic Industry marking 33 million copies of the single sold will be auctioned with the score.
