Grammy award won by Lou Rawls in 1967 for Best R&B Vocal Performance for his hit single ''Dead End Street''. Lou Rawls' career spanned from the 50s and 60s, when he opened for The Beatles, to his hip monologues during the 1970s, above all known for his eminently cool voice; Frank Sinatra once said that Rawls had ''the classiest singing and silkiest chops in the singing game.''

Award is a gold-plated metal representation of a gramophone affixed to a heavy wooden base, where the plaque is affixed. The ''NARAS'', National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, copyright is engraved to side. Measures 4.75'' x 4.75'' x 6.5''. Weighs 2 lb. 3.5 oz. Some tarnishing to metal and nicks to base, but in unusually very good plus condition.
