Offered here is the Platinum Record given to Phil Specter. This came directly from Phil Spector. It was released on 6 August 1965. Produced by George Martin, it was the fifth UK album release by the band and contains fourteen songs in its original British form. Seven of these, including the singles “Help!” and “Ticket to Ride”, appeared in the film and took up the first side of the vinyl album. The second side contained seven other releases including the most-covered song ever written, “Yesterday” The album was met with favorable critical reviews and topped both Britain and the US charts. Spector was named director of A&R for Apple Records. How the heck is this item even available? Obtaining any award from one of the most important music artists in history is nearly impossible and yes, now there is one available. This award given to Phil Spector is the only award that has ever been offered in the collectible world.
The plaque reads “Presented to Phil Spector, To commemorate the sale of more than 1,000,000 copies of the record. “The Beatles Platinum Record “Help” Given .” This platinum record in the double matted, box-framed style that was the standard in the pre R.I.A.A. era
In 1969, Spector returned to his career and subsequently produced the Beatles’ album Let It Be (1970), as well as several solo records by the band’s John Lennon and George Harrison. “The Long and Winding Road” (produced for the Beatles, 1970), and “My Sweet Lord” (produced for Harrison, 1970). Spector’s honors include the 1973 Grammy Award for Album of the Year for co-producing Harrison’s Concert for Bangladesh (1971). Spector was invited by Lennon and George Harrison to take on the task of turning the Beatles’ abandoned Let It Be recording sessions into a usable album. He went to work, using many of his production techniques, making significant changes to the arrangements and sound of some songs.
