"Of course the BBs have been royally screwed by the record companies who havent done their sums properly and thats why the RIAA awards for the group are so obviously incorrect. Pet Sounds eligible for gold then platinum status in America in 2000?!! Are you serios? pet Sounds had probably hit platinum before the 60s was even done."
Not quite how it works: it's the RIAA who "do the sums", but for that to happen the record company have to supply the paperwork and pay for the accounting (a few hundred dollars). When they did the sums in 2000, it emerged that Pet Sounds would have gone gold in the summer of 1967... if Capitol had requested an audit. Why they didn't is a fine, fine question. Replies:
