Allman Brothers Band – Eat A Peach Platinum Record Award

A historic Platinum Record award for the Allman Brothers Band's double album, "Eat A Peach," presented to their longtime manager and Capricorn Records co-founder, Phil Walden (who was also legendary for discovering and managing Otis Redding.) "Eat A Peach" was the Allman's last album to feature Duane Allman, who died in a motorcycle accident while it was being recorded. It was released in February 1972. This award was made for Warner Brothers and presented to Walden; it is an "in-house" award as the Recording Industry Association of America didn't begin certifying albums as "platinum" until 1976. This award reportedly hung in the Capricorn Recording Studios. It measures 19 1/4" square, and is in overall very good condition, with some scuffing to the original plexiglass front. Recordmecca's Jeff Gold is a former Warner Bros. executive vice president, and recalls seeing many similar awards for other artists hanging in the label's headquarters. He will write a letter of authenticity attesting to this award's provenance, and noting Recordmecca's lifetime guarantee. (The inscription at the bottom of the award reads "Presented to Phil Walden & Associates by Warner Bros. Records to commemorate the sale of more than one million copies of the album "Eat A Peach."")
