Geffen Records 1994 Over 4 Million Sales album award for Eagles release Hell Freezes Over. The album was released on Nov. 8, 1994 and actually ended up selling over five million copies the first year and by 2014 the RIAA had certified it at nine million copies sold in the U.S. (Note: This is not a RIAA award). It was certified Platinum in U.K.
Famously named after Don Henley's 1980 proclamation that the group would get back together "when Hell freezes over," it became the title for the legendary group's second live album, coming 14 years after their last effort. It contained a new acoustic version of "Hotel California" featuring an added acoustic guitar and percussion introduction, numerous other major Eagles hits and new tunes "Love Will Keep Us Alive" and "Get Over It". The album went to #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart in the U.S. and #18 in the U.K.

Notes on the condition of all vintage record 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: Do let us know if you want photos of any other details on our pieces and we'll be happy to provide.
