    Description

    The Beatles Something New RIAA White Matte Gold Record Sales Award (Capitol, 1964). The group's third album on Capitol continued the trend of including fewer covers (as great as they were), with just two Carl Perkins gems and one rockin' Larry Williams composition in addition to their own originals. This album sometimes gets "lost" among the boys' more famously successful and critically acclaimed albums, but if not for all those other Beatles' albums, this would undoubtedly be considered a classic. According to the plaque beneath the gold disc, this award was "Presented to Capitol Records to Commemorate the Sale of More Than One Million Dollars Worth of the Capitol Records Long-Playing Record Album 'Something New'". Framed with a rare white matte to an overall 17.5" x 21.5". In Very Good to Fine condition, with minor spotting on the matte from age, and some minor scratches to the wood frame. COA from Heritage Auctions.
