Offered is an RIAA Gold Record Award for Prince's 1982 LP 1999. The album was certified Gold on January 11, 1983, less than three months after its release, and the offered award dates from that period. The album was released on October 27, 1982, and it put Prince on another level as a performer--it was his breakout record in terms of a wider audience. The album was in the top 10 and "Delirious," "Little Red Corvette" and "1999" were all hits. The Rolling Stone Album Guide declared "1999 may be Prince's most influential album: Its synth-and-drum machine-heavy arrangements codified the Minneapolis sound that loomed over mid-'80s R&B and pop, not to mention the next two decades' worth of electro, house, and techno." It's a fact that Michael Jackson was influenced to push his sound on Thriller because of what he hear Prince doing. That's impact. The frame measures 17 x 21 inches and presents Near Mint condition.
