English singer-songwriter, Paul Weller, from Woking, Surrey, established himself as a thriving solo artist in 1991, following successful spells with "The Jam" and "The Style Council." He has remained very much a "national" star, with many of his lyrics reflecting British society. The "P" sub-category of gold discs and signed gold records include 2 displays featuring Weller's 2005 album, "As is Now," which peaked at no. 4 in the UK album charts and spawned 3 successful singles. Sure to be popular with devotees is the spectacular, enormous display featuring a CD gold disc of the album, accompanied by four 10" x 8" photographs of Weller, each personally hand signed by the artist. A little less expensive, but no less impressive, is the striking substantial display featuring a CD gold disc with a single hand signed photograph of Weller.
Californian pop / R&B girl group, The Pussycat Dolls, were founded by choreographer Robin Antin in 1995, as a burlesque troupe.

The album reached no. 5 in the US Billboard 200 and no. 7 in the UK Album Charts, achieving platinum and 3x platinum certification respectively.
