    Description

    Lovin' Spoonful "Summer in the City" RIAA White Mat Gold Record Sales Award (Kama Sutra KA211, 1966). According to the plaque beneath the gold disc, this award was "Presented to the Lovin' Spoonful to Commemorate the Sale of More Than One Million Copies of the Kama Sutra Records Pop Single Record 'Summer in the City'". Awards presented to the artist are much more scarce, and are more desirable. Framed with a white mat to an overall 13" x 17". In Fine condition, with light wear to the frame, and minor scratching to the plaque. From the David Gest Memorabilia Archive.

    Topping the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks in August, 1966, one month after the single's initial release, "Summer in the City" is a near-perfect sample of Psychedelic Pop, and is included in the Rolling Stone list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time."
