    Description

    Beatles "Abbey Road" Gold Sales Award. The plaque on this white matte-style award reads: "Presented to Apple Records to commemorate the sale of more than one million dollars worth of the Apple Records long-playing album 'Abbey Road.' " Certified gold by the RIAA on October 27, 1969, the final album recorded by the group, "Abbey Road" was one of their most unified efforts (even if, by this time, the musicians were recording many of their parts separately). It boasted some of their most intricate melodies, harmonies, and instrumental arrangements, and also heralded the arrival of Harrison as a composer of equal talent to Lennon and McCartney. The award is in very good condition with only a few minor dings to the frame. A very rare item.
