Gold and 
Platinum Albums
In 1958 The Recording Industry Association Of America - RIAA - launched their Award Program, which was to be a formal certification process, establishing Gold Awards as the industry standard for success. Their Gold and Platinum Awards Program is the longest-running, objective measure of achievement for sound recordings within the U.S. music industry.

The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry - IFPI - administers international certifications.

The criteria for receiving a gold certification is that the album must have sold 500 000 copies. For platinum certification the figure is 1 million copies sold. And consequently, for multi platinums additional millions are required.

The gold and platinum album certifications in these tables below are based on domestic sales only. There are additional sales internationally, which I will deal with later (at some point).


Check out other sections of Jay's site for additional info on for instance Grammy Awards and Nominations that Jay has received over the years, the more than 250 songs that he has composed, the ever growing HUGE discography and of course, you can listen to sound bites, check out charts, midi files, supporter transcription etc. on other sections as well.
