Fantastic official floater-style RIAA gold sales award presented to "Brad Delp to commemorate the sale of more than 500,000 copies of the Epic Records long-playing record album 'Boston.'" Framed with its disc, plate, and a small image of the album cover to an overall size of 17 x 21. In fine condition, with slight peeling to record label. In a period dominated by the disco craze, Boston's self-titled debut album exceeded all expectations following its release by Epic on August 25, 1976. On the strength of its first single, 'More Than a Feeling,' the album was certified gold in three weeks and by November had officially gone platinum, sales figures that cemented Boston as the best-selling debut album of all time in the United States. As a gold RIAA award presented to Boston’s iconic lead singer, this piece bears both immense aesthetic appeal and historical significance—Boston's debut album has since sold over 25 million copies worldwide. Micki Delp notes that Brad took this off of his wall and presented it to her parents as a gift. From the Brad Delp Collection, and accompanied by a letter of provenance from Micki Delp.
