Item 76 - John Lennon Catalog 382 (Jan 2012)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $6,868.80 (includes buyer's premium)


BMI Citation of Achievement award, 15 x 19 Perma Plaque, presented to Lennon and reading in full: “Citation of Achievement 1968 presented by Broadcast Music, Inc. to John Lennon in recognition of the great national popularity as measured by broadcast performances, attained by Hey Jude.” In fine condition. The blockbuster song is ranked by BMI as the eleventh most played song in history; it’s also The Beatles most successful and biggest-selling single. BMI, otherwise known as Broadcast Music, Inc, collects licensing fees from businesses that use music, which it then distributes to songwriters, composers, and music publishers. Like its competing organization, ASCAP, one of the primary vehicles by which those fees are gauged is radio and television airplay. Incidentally, BMI's top songs are 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling' and 'Yesterday,' both of which were broadcast 8 million times in the 20th century. BMI Certificates of Achievement are, of course, highly collectible; when presented to the artist, that appeal and desirability is enhanced. RRAuction COA.
