Helen Reddy’s 1973 LP “Long Hard Climb” – Honored With An RIAA Gold White Matte Award

Helen Reddy enjoyed international success in the 1970’s. Her fourth studio album Long Hard Climb was released in the summer of 1973, and certified RIAA Gold on September 19, 1973. It contained her hit singles, Delta Dawn and Leave Me Alone (Ruby Red Dress) and is honored here with an Authentic, First Presentation, First-State, RIAA White Matte…The marks on the frame, are common on many original RIAA White Mattes, they come from the hanging hooks of other white mattes when they were stacked together against walls, or in storage. The back of this award shows the position of  the hooks (and the original backing paper was opened on three sides to change a cracked front glass and then retaped)._______________________________
