Gold Discs, Record Ltd. Edition, Photo Displays
This extensive range of gold records and photograph displays contains a mixture of "classic" and contemporary albums.
Beatles' gold records are eminently collectible and enthusiasts are sure to be delighted by the display featuring their "Revolver" album. The Beatles' 7th album, released prior to their final tour in 1966, is widely regarded as one of the all-time greatest albums. It topped both the UK and US Album Charts, keeping top spot for, respectively, 7 weeks and 6 weeks, achieving multi-platinum status in both countries. Ranked no. 3 in "Rolling Stone" magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All-Time," "Revolver" is generally regarded as some of the Beatles' best work.
Another of the gold records in the "T" sub-category likely to prove popular is The Eagles' "Hotel California." The 1976 album was a major international success, topping the UK Album Charts and spending 8 weeks at the head of the US Billboard 200, together with reaching no.1 in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. "Hotel California" was awarded 6-times platinum certification in the UK, 16-times platinum status in the United States (over 16 million sales) and 10-times platinum status in Canada.
Another of the gold discs likely to appeal to collectors is Thin Lizzy's compilation album, "Whisky in the Jar," originally released in 1996 and covering much of the band's early career.
Amongst the more contemporary gold discs is "Beautiful World," a 2006 release by Manchester pop / rock band Take That. The band's first new album for 11 years topped the UK Albums Charts and was a hit throughout Europe. With worldwide sales exceeding 3 million (as of June 2009), including over 2.5 million in the UK, "Beautiful World" was awarded 8x platinum certification by the British Phonographic Institute. It was the UK 2nd best seller of 2006 and 4th best seller of 2007.
