Gold Discs, Record Signed
These attractive "massive" display items include a CD gold disc / record, along with a photograph (or CD cover) signed by the band or artist. The "G" sub-category currently contains a limited range, although there is plenty of scope for future inclusion of further signed gold records.
London pop / dance duo Go West formed in 1982. They enjoyed considerable success in both the UK and United States throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Amongst the featured gold discs is their 1993 compilation album, "Aces and Kings," which peaked at no.5 in the UK Album Charts. The original CD cover has been personally hand-signed by Peter Cox and Richard Drummie.
American rock trio, Green Day formed in 1987. Originally part of the Californian punk scene, their Reprise label debut album, "Dookie," eventually sold over 10 million copies in the US and 15 million worldwide. Green Day were widely credited with reviving mainstream interest in US punk rock and have sold in excess of 22 million records in the United States. Fans and collectors will undoubtedly be delighted by the 2 Green Day signed gold records displays currently on offer. Their 1991 release, "1,039 / Smoothed Out Slappy Hours," is a CD compilation of their debut album "39 / Smooth" and the EPs "Slappy" and "1,000 Hours." The other featured album by Green Day is 2009 release, "21st Century Breakdown," which collected a Grammy Award for "Best Rock Album," in January 2010. Immensely successful, the album topped both the UK Album Charts and US Billboard 200, achieving platinum and gold status respectively. It also reached the Top 10 in 22 other countries, reaching no. 1 in 15 of these.
Potential future inclusions may be Genesis albums, "We Can't Dance" and "Invisible Touch" (both multi-platinum), along with numerous multi-platinum albums by US country star Vince Gill and successful American R&B singer, Elgin Baylor Lumpkin, better known as Ginuwine.
