    Apollo 11 Music: "Flight of Apollo 11" Sheet Music and Press Release Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, Certified and Encapsulated by Collectibles Authentication Guaranty. One manuscript copy of "Flight of Apollo 11" with words and music by yodeling cowboy Red River Dave McEnery, 1969. Included a press release, undated, that advertises the song's appearance to the Texas public. It reads, in part, "A hillbilly song telling the whole story of the flight is being released on phonograph records this week by Red River Dave (McEnery), a well-known singing cowboy who has had many ballads in the past about news events." Other topical songs written by the artist were "Amelia Earharts Last Flight" and "The Incident At Dyke Bridge". Excellent; one flattened fold at the center of the manuscript. Areas of toning and light chipping to the press release. Sealed in a numbered archival sleeve. This lot will include a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.
