Prince – RIAA Platinum Record Award for “When Doves Cry” Single
An original RIAA Platinum Record Award for Prince’s worldwide smash hit single “When Doves Cry”, presented to his longtime tour accountant. “When Doves Cry”, released in May 1984, was a #1 single in the United States for five weeks, and the top selling single of that year. It reached the top of the charts around the world, and was #52 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It was the first single from Prince’s #1 album, Purple Rain, and continues to be one of his best loved songs.
This award was presented to Don Peake, Prince’s longtime tour accountant, from whom we acquired it. It’s in excellent condition, completely original, with a bit of scuffing to the plexiglass front and a bit of wear to the frame, top center. Original RIAA Awards for Prince’s records are scarce indeed, and this one is highly desirable. With Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity. 9 3/4″ x 14 3/4″.
