Offered is an RIAA Gold Record Award for Bob Dylan's landmark 1976 LP Desire. The album was released on January 5, 1976, and certified gold just nine days later on January 14, 1976. The offered award was produced at that time. A well-received follow-up to Blood on the Tracks, Desire reached No. 1 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart for five weeks, becoming one of Dylan's bestselling studio albums. Most of the album was co-written by Jacques Levy, and is composed of lengthy story-songs, two of which quickly generated controversy: the 11-minute-long "Joey", which is seen as glorifying the violent gangster "Crazy Joey" Gallo, and "Hurricane", the opening track that tells a passionate account of the murder case against boxer Rubin Carter, whom the song asserts was framed. Carter was released in 1985, after a judge overturned his conviction on appeal. The award measures 17 x 21 1/2 inches and presents with only minor wear to the frame. Near Mint condition.
