An original RIAA Gold Record Award for Radiohead’s The Bends , presented to a senior executive of the group’s record label, Capitol Records. We have blurred out the executive’s name on the photos for their privacy, but it appears on the actual award. The award is completely original and in near mint condition. When we acquired this from the original recipient, the plate with their name had begun to tilt a bit (the glue came loose) and so we carefully opened it up and re-glued the plate. There is no evidence of the repair, other than the original backing paper is having been very carefully slit on three sides and reattached. Two minor scuffs to the bottom corners, but otherwise mint. Guaranteed authentic with no time limits. 17 1/4″ x 21 1/2″. Recordmecca’s clients include the Smithsonian Institution, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Experience Music Project, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Recordmecca’s Jeff Gold was named by Rolling Stone as one of 5 Top Collectors of High-End Music Memorabilia. He authenticated previously unknown Bob Dylan manuscripts for PBS’s History Detectives, appeared as a featured appraiser on VH1’s Rock Collectors, and has been profiled as a top dealer and collector in the books Vinyl Junkies and Retromania: Pop Culture’s Addiction to it’s Own Past.
