Offered here is the Platinum Record given to Phil Specter. This came directly from Phil Spector. 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. Meet the Beatles! is a studio album by the English rock band the Beatles, released as their second album in the United States. It was the group’s first American album to be issued by Capitol Records, on 20 January 1964 in both mono and stereo formats. It topped the popular album chart on 15 February 1964 and remained at number one for eleven weeks before being replaced by The Beatles’ Second Album. The cover featured Robert Freeman’s iconic portrait of the Beatles used in the United Kingdom for With the Beatles, with a blue tint added to the original stark black-and-white photograph.
The plaque reads “Presented to Phil Spector, To commemorate the sale of more than 1,000,000 copies of the record. Another from the Phil Spector collection donated from 1999 for the Friend of Mine Foundation charity Silent Auction held at the House of Blues in West Hollywood. According to Phil’s own personal testimony about this item, he received it as a gift from the estate of the late Brian Epstein. Phil and Brian were very close friends and Phil claimed that Brian had urged members of the Beatles early in their careers to allow Phil to either produce or engineer an album for them.”The Beatles Platinum Record “Meet The Beatles” 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.
