RIAA Gold Album Award for the Black Box album Dreamland. Released on June 1, 1990, by May 6, 1991 it was certified Gold by the RIAA for 500,000 copies sold. 

The house group from Italy scored with this album that featured the dance hits "Everybody", "Ride On Time", "Strike It Up", and cover of Earth, Wind & Fire track "Fantasy". The album is partly well-known since Loleatta Holloway and Martha Wash sang on it, and a Dan Hartman-penned track was heavily sampled, but none of them received credit. French Caribbean model Katrin Quinol lip synced in the group's videos and the impression was left that she was the lead vocalist. Nevertheless, the album reached #56 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, #14 on the UK chart, and it charted in several other countries as well. See image above for RIAA sales certifications of this album*.

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.
