    Nah, Whir, the gold record status (or platinum or diamond or pewter or whatever) is regardless of pre-release sales. If pre-release sales are high enough, it "ships gold". If, after release it attains that sales figure, it simply "goes gold".

    Oh, Surreal, the substrate is the metallic center core of a CD, usually aluminum, but for reference masters or archival copies, special master CD's with a gold substrate are used.

    The gold and platinum sales requirements are country specific.
    I do believe that ~50k sold records gives gold status in music, and ~100k platinum.
