Elvis’ last studio album, Moody Blue, was a combination of studio and live recordings. The tracks consist of studio recordings from February and October 1976 and the live material was from Elvis' Ann Arbor, Michigan concert on April 24 and 26, 1977. Elvis did not have enough studio recordings to fill an album so the live tracks were added. RCA released the album in July 1977 on blue vinyl in keeping with the color in the title and because this was rarely done, fans assumed it was a collectors edition. The album reached the top 40 but soared to number 3 in the charts and number 1 on the country charts after Elvis' death. Moody Blue was certified gold by RIAA on September 12, 1977 and offered is the RIAA gold award for Moody Blue. The award's plaque reads "Presented to Bill Todd to Commemorate the Sale of More Than 500,000 Copies of the RCA Records Long-Playing Record Album 'Moody Blue.'" Bill Todd was most-likely an RCA executive in the late 1970s. The gold award measures 21 by 17 inches (53.34 x 43.18 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The award presents with some minor distresses to the frame. Near Mint condition.
