Gold Discs, Record Signed
Gold Discs, Record Signed - Letter T
Covering a variety of musical genres, this range of highest-quality gold discs displays caters for diverse musical tastes.
Scottish alternative rock band, Travis, from Glasgow, was formed as "Glass Onion" in 1990, the name taken from the Beatles song of the same name. Their current name comes from the Harry Dean Stanton character, Travis Henderson, in the film, "Paris, Texas." Amongst the signed gold records displays on offer is one featuring their 2003 release, "12 Memories." A lyrically dark album, it concentrates on the invasion of Iraq, domestic abuse and psychological crises. Entering the UK Album Charts at an unsatisfactory no. 3, its sales were inadequate to achieve platinum status, which was a huge disappointment, following 10x and 4x platinum certification for the band's previous 2 albums. However, the album reached the top 10 in the Album Charts of Austria, Denmark, Germany, Norway and Switzerland, seeming likely to be admired by aficionados and collectors.
American heavy metal outfit, Trivium, was formed in 1999. Their 2nd album, "Ascendancy," was released in March 2005, to great critical acclaim. Although only reaching no. 151 in the US Billboard 200, it is widely considered the band's "breakthrough" album and it reached no. 4 in the US Top Heatseekers Charts. In the UK Album Charts, "Ascendancy" got no higher than no. 78, but was awarded gold certification by the British Phonographic Industry, with sales in excess of 100,000.
Collectors of Welsh singer-songwriter Tom Jones memorabilia seem sure to be delighted by the content of the "T" sub-category, which features 4 of his albums. These comprise 1971 release, "Tom Jones sings She's a Lady," the 1977-released "Classic Tom Jones," along with compilation albums, "The Biggest Hits" and 2003 UK no.2 "Greatest Hits." As the veteran superstar, born in 1940, comes towards the end of his exceptional musical career, any of his signed gold records can only increase in value, so are an excellent investment.
