Columbia had bragged about Love and Theft going Gold a few weeks ago, but
I always wait unitl RIAA verifies. So here you go. I do believe this might
be Dylan's fastest album to go Gold. I will check it out, when I have some
spare time.

American record album sales statistics from RIAA (Recording Industry of America) as of November 5, 2001
(with the exception of BOB DYLAN, which Bob Gill researched at the Library of Congress).  Nothing on Live
1966 as of yet.

G for gold (500,000), P for platinum (1,000,000), M for multi-platinum (2,000,000 plus). Each unit within set counts as one unit toward certification, so that a 2 CD set would need only sell 250,000 to be certified gold. The first date is the release year. The latter date(s) are dates albums reached G-P-M status.
