RIAA gold record award presented to Wings co-founder Denny Laine for Band on the Run. The engraved plaque reads: Presented to Denny Laine to Commemorate the Sale of More than One Million Dollars Worth of the Apple Records Long-Playing Record Album Band on the Run. This “white matte” style award originally found its way into the marketplace courtesy of Laine’s former wife, Jo Jo Laine. Awards such as these presented to band members continue to command a premium among collectors. This particular award for ‘Band on the Run’ has the added benefit of being Paul McCartney’s largest-selling and most celebrated post-Beatles album, nearly 40 years after its initial release in December 1973. The album received near unanimous glowing reviews at the time and topped the album charts worldwide. Framed with a commemorative plaque and mini-album cover to an overall size of 17.5 x 21.5. In fine condition.
