In keeping with its ongoing dedication to preserving and celebrating timeless recordings, The Recording Academy has announced the 25 newest additions to its GRAMMY Hall Of Fame. This year’s collection acknowledges a diverse range of both singles and album recordings at least 25 years old that exhibit qualitative or historical significance. Each year recordings are reviewed by a special member committee comprised of eminent and knowledgeable professionals from all branches of the recording arts, with final approval by The Recording Academy’s National Board of Trustees. The Hall, now in its 44th year, currently totals 1,038 recordings.
