Description
Beatles 'Something New' Gold Record Award, 1964. This 'floater'-style RIAA award reads Presented to Capitol Records, Inc. to commemorate the sale of more than 500,000 copies of the long-playing record album 'Something New.' Certified gold on August 24, 1964, the album was released because Capitol Records initially did not have the rights to A Hard Day's Night, issued in the U. S. as a soundtrack by United Artists, the company that released the film. Instead, Capitol cobbled together a competing record containing eight of the 14 songs from the U.K. version, two songs from a U.K. EP, and a German-language version of I Want to Hold Your Hand. Original frame is scuffed and scratched. No Reserve.
