Very rare piece of history

Media Source: Official Award
Condition: Very Good Plus

Back in Black is the seventh studio album by Australian rock band AC/DC. Produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange, the album was released on 25 July 1980 by Albert Productions and Atlantic Records. By the late 1970s, AC/DC began to achieve significant popularity outside their native Australia, with high-energy live performances and a string of successful albums. In 1979, they paired with producer Lange and recorded their international breakthrough, Highway to Hell. Shortly before the recording of their follow-up, lead vocalist Bon Scott died after a night of heavy alcohol consumption. The group continued with ex-Geordie singer Brian Johnson.

Back in Black was recorded over seven weeks in the Bahamas in spring 1980. The area was hit by tropical storms at the time, making the sessions difficult at times. Johnson penned the album's lyrics and melodies, while guitarists Angus and Malcolm Young composed the music. Its musical content consists of hard rock-styled numbers. Lange demanded perfection in the band's recordings, particularly on Johnson's vocals. Following its completion, the group mixed Back in Black at Electric Lady Studios in New York City. The album's all-black cover was designed as a "sign of mourning" for Scott.

Their sixth international release, Back in Black was an unprecedented success: it has sold an estimated 50 million copies worldwide. Its enormous sales figures have made it the second-highest-selling album in history. The band supported the album with a yearlong world tour, cementing them among the most popular music acts of the early 1980s. Back in Black received positive critical reception at the time of its release, and it has since been included on numerous lists of "greatest" albums. Since its initial release, the album has been reissued and remastered multiple times, most recently for digital distribution.

This award was created by KEN KITTINGER who spent nearly five decades on Nashville’s famed Music Row and was heralded in the music indutry as the premier gold and platinum award maker. Mr. Kittinger became ill and passed at 91 in 2016 but remained active in the music business until the day he died. His awards hang on the walls of the most well-know celebrities, radio DJ's, record executives and VIP's who helped promote the sales throughout the world.

This was never made available to the public. Never taken out of the box, but part of overstock from Mr. Kenneth A. Kittinger's Music Row workshop where he made GOLD & PLATINUM record awards for the music industry for 50 years for every major record label.

Postage is secured and tracked.
