    Beatles "Yesterday" RIAA White Matte Gold Record Award (Capitol 5498, 1965). Recorded with only McCartney's vocal and acoustic guitar, and later overdubbed with a string quartet, "Yesterday" marks the first solo performance on a Beatles record. From the Help! album, and initially released as a single only in the US (it was vetoed by the rest of the band for single release in the UK due to its sound being so uncharacteristic from what the Beatles were doing at the time), the monumental song spent 11 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, four of them at Number One! The plaque, situated below the gold record states that the award was "Presented to the Beatles to Commemorate the Sale of More Than One Million Copies of the Capitol Records Pop Single Record 'Yesterday'." This fantastic piece measures 13" x 17", and is in Very Fine condition. Includes New York Frame and Picture Co. sticker.
