Elvis Presley recorded at RCA Nashville’s legendary Studio B in June 1970. Most of the songs would appear in the concert film Elvis: That’s the Way It Is, with eight of the studio tracks and four live-concert songs from the International Hotel in Vegas performance in August 1970 appearing on the soundtrack album for the film, released on November 11, 1970. The 1970 MGM documentary film chronicled Elvis’ on-stage performances during his summer festival at the International Hotel in Las Vegas in August that year. This movie was Elvis’ first non-acting role since the beginning of his film career in 1956 and reveals the musician’s renewed focus on his live performances. The MGM crew, directed by Denis Sanders, filmed Elvis’ performances on August 10, 11, 12 and 13, 1970. The soundtrack album for the film of the same title reached number 21 on the Billboard charts, 8 on the country charts and was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on June 28, 1973. Offered is the original white linen matte gold record award issued by RIAA. This framed award displays a plaque, next to a small image of the album cover and mounted beneath the gold record, that reads “Presented to ELVIS PRESLEY to commemorate the sale of more than one million dollars worth of the RCA RECORDS long-playing record album ‘ELVIS – THAT’S THE WAY IT IS,’” all set against a white linen matte background. The reverse bears the framing label from New York Frame & Picture Co. on 29 John Street in New York. The framed award measures 21 1/2 by 17 1/2 inches (54.61 x 44.45 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

The award presents with several minor scuffs and scratches to the frame, with some minor loss of finish. Excellent to Mint condition.
