The Doors – RIAA Platinum Record Award ‘Waiting For the Sun’ Presented to Manager Danny Sugerman

An original vintage RIAA Platinum Record Award for The Doors 1968 album Waiting For the Sun, presented to longtime Doors associate and manager Danny Sugerman (1954-2005).

Danny Sugerman met and began working for The Doors at the remarkably young age of 13, first handling their fan mail and organizing their clippings and scrapbook, and later writing press releases.  He was close to Jim Morrison, and after Morrison’s death, became Ray Manzarek’s manager, and then manager of The Doors, overseeing their catalog releases and legacy.

Sugerman wrote several books about Jim Morrison and The Doors, including the bestselling Morrison biography No One Here Gets Out Alive (co-written with Jerry Hopkins), The Doors: The Illustrated History, and his Doors-heavy autobiography Wonderland Avenue. He was also a consultant to Oliver Stone for the film The Doors.

We acquired this award directly from Danny Sugerman’s widow, Fawn Hall; her signed letter of authenticity is included, as is Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.

The award is completely original and in excellent condition, with just a bit of light wear and a tiny chip to the back edge of the frame, and some wear to the backing cardboard.  Waiting For the Sun was certified platinum on June 10, 1987, and this was one of the original platinum awards made at that time.

An extraordinary opportunity to obtain a genuine Doors record award with rock solid provenance.

[Note: In the past few years an abundance of fraudulent record awards have surfaced on Ebay and at auction houses; we strongly recommend avoiding any award that doesn’t come with provenance and a written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.]
