Gold Discs, Record Ltd. Edition, Photo Displays
These limited edition displays of gold discs, gold records and photographs are visually stunning and make impressive display items.
Hard rock fans cannot fail to be impressed by the displays in this sub-category. Leading the way is the "Back in Black" album by Australian band AC/DC. The band's 7th album introduces lead vocals by Brian Johnson and was dedicated to former lead singer, Bon Scott, who died of acute alcohol poisoning in the February preceding the album's release in July 1980. The album has sold an estimated 49 million copies worldwide, making it the second highest selling album of all-time and the best-selling album released by a band.
Another likely popular choice amongst the gold records is the classic, 1972 Alice Cooper album, "School's Out." The title track was his first major hit, reaching no. 7 in the Billboard Hot 100 and no. 1 in the UK singles chart, with the album peaking at no. 2 in the Billboard 200 pop albums chart. It has remained a staple of Cooper's live performances. Fans may also like "Just Push Play," a 2001 release by US band Aerosmith, which was awarded platinum certification within a month of its release and featured hit single, "Jaded."
Also featured is "The Best Damn Thing," a 2007 release by Canadian pop punk singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne. This RIAA platinum certificated album seems a good choice for punk / new wave gold records enthusiasts, who may also be interested in Adam and the Ants' highly successful 1981 album, "Prince Charming," which included 2 UK no. 1 singles, "Stand and Deliver" in May 1981 and "Prince Charming" in the following September.
Further inclusions are eponymous gold discs by talented American singer-songwriter Anastacia and Sheffield's alternative rock band, the Arctic Monkeys.
