Bee Gees Saturday Night Fever soundtrack RSO record label award.

This award represents the very first success of what would become nothing short of a smash, landing at #20 the RIAA's list of top selling albums of all time in the U.S. at 16 million copies sold.
Filled with legendary Bee Gees hits along with tracks from Kool & the Gang, KC & the Sunshine Band, Yvonne Elliman, The Trammps and more.

It also topped the charts in the UK, spending 18 weeks at #1, and won the Grammy award for Album of the Year.

Notes on the condition of all vintage RIAA awards like this one: Please do not buy this item if you want a brand new piece of memorabilia. These are historical artifacts from the year they were produced. As a result they may show signs of wear. Frankly, if you see a 20 to 50-year-old award purported to be in 100% perfect condition, it might be too good to be true. After all, an antique should have "good' wear. If not, you might want to question the piece.
As to where they came from, they could have been displayed in record label offices, recording studios, artist manager's offices, radio stations, private collector's homes and yes, of course, possibly the artist's or songwriter's home. Typically, we don't know all the places they may have been over the years other than what we've stated in the description.
Finally, a word on photos: Our photos are zoomable so you can get a very good look. Do let us know if you want photos of any other details on our pieces and we'll be happy to provide.
