GRAMMY HALL OF FAME GETS BIGGER

Portnow Adds 30 More Classics to His Collection
The Recording Academy has added 30 new singles and albums to the Grammy Hall of Fame, bringing the total number of titles to 881.

The new additions include the Beatles' "Penny Lane," the Jackson 5's "I'll Be There," Al Jolson's "My Mammy," the Marvelettes' "Please Mr. Postman," Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again," the original Broadway cast recording of, Brigadoon, Prince & the Revolution's Purple Rain, and Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long." The list also includes songs or LPs from Joan Baez, Mildred Bailey, Ray Charles, Jimmy Cliff, Fats Domino, Duke Ellington, Al Green, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Hank Williams.

Records are reviewed every year by a committee of knowledgeable professionals, with final approval made by the Recording Academy Trustees.

Established by the Academy's National Trustees in 1973, the Grammy Hall of Fame was created to honor recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance that are at least 25 years old. The list is displayed at The Grammy Museum, and it’s also posted (in alphabetical order by title) at www.grammy.com/Recording_Academy/Awards/Hall_Of_Fame/ .

Said Neil Portnow, awakening from his annual nine-month hibernation: "The Grammy Hall of Fame represents all genres of music, acknowledging the diversity of musical expression for which the Academy has become renowned. These musical treasures have brought us timeless recordings, and each of them deserves to be memorialized. These recordings are living evidence that music remains an indelible part of our culture. Now, won’t you all please get down on one knee and join me in a rousing rendition of ‘My Mammy’?"
