The Doors – White Matte Gold Record Presented to The Doors For “Touch Me”
An extremely rare 1969 “white matte” style gold record for the #1 single “Touch Me” presented to the Doors.
While vintage gold records presented to an artist are very scarce, this one has impeccable provenance; it comes from the personal collection of longtime Doors manager Bill Siddons, and originally hung in the Doors Hollywood offices. Siddons writes in the accompanying letter of authenticity “I, Bill Siddons, was the manager of the Doors from January 1968 through October 1972. The gold record award for “Touch Me” was owned by me and hung at the Doors office at 8512 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles 90069, for the duration of our leasing that space.”
“White matte” gold records are the most sought-after of all record awards, and authentic ones presented to a band or artist are the ultimate award collectible. We acquired this directly from Bill Siddons, who has had it in his collection since it was presented in 1969. It is completely original and the gold plated disc has the correct stamper number for the “Touch Me” single–EK 45646. When we obtained it the plate had slipped a bit, so we opened it to reattach the plate and clean the glass. The disc, matte and plate are all in excellent condition. There is a small flaw in the glass above the disc, and the frame has the usual light wear. Approximately 50% of the original brown paper on the back is present.
We’re proud to offer this extraordinary Doors collectible.
