Kiss “Double Platinum” – 1978 – RIAA Platinum Floater

The first Kiss compilation album, Double Platinum, was released on April 2, 1978. Six weeks later it became RIAA Gold and Platinum simultaneously on 5/16/78. This double album included many remixed versions of their hits, as well as “Strutter ’78”, a re-recorded version of a song from the group’s first album.  Here you see it honored with an Authentic, First Presentation, First-State RIAA Platinum LP “Floater” type award…20160729_141524_Richtone(HDR)

Coincidently, and of note for award collectors, the original vinyl release, in an embossed, silver-foiled, gatefold-sleeve, was packaged with a printed “Platinum Award” thanking the Kiss Army for making the band a “Double Platinum Success”…kissdoubleplatinuminsert2The backing paper is original. The fact that it is torn, which is not unusual, allows us to se a bit more of an award made nearly forty years ago…20160729_141547_Richtone(HDR)
