    Description

    The Strokes Is This It RIAA Gold Record Award (RCA 07863 68045-2, 2001). This incredibly attractive award recognizes the sale of half a million copies of the debut album from New York's the Strokes. Raw and catchy, Is This It, and the decidedly retro video for lead-off single "Last Nite" ushered in the Garage-Rock revival of the early 21st century. Following this landmark release, stripped-down, up-tempo Rock & Roll became fashionable again, with bands the Hives, Jet, the White Stripes and others either forming or gaining popularity in the wake of this album. Presented to Rick Morrison, this beautiful award features a bright gold record framed with a CD and compact disc-sized artwork, over a blue variation of the cover art of the US release. This is an authentic, certified, RIAA, Bar Hologram Type, LP & CD award. It is a first presentation (construction correct for the date of certification). It is First-State (all original parts). 18.5" x 22.5". Fine condition.
