grammy logo featured111The Recording Academy has added 27 new titles to its legendary Grammy Hall Of Fame, including Dolly Parton‘s “Jolene” and Kris Kristofferson‘s self-titled debut CD. The Rolling Stone‘s “Honky Tonk Women” and U2‘s The Joshua Tree are also among the new tracks and albums landing Hall of Fame status.

The list currently includes 960 recordings and is on display at L.A.’s Grammy Museum. Singles and albums chosen must be at least 25 years old and exhibit qualitative or historical significance. Recordings are reviewed annually by a special member committee comprised of knowledgeable professionals from all branches of the recording arts, with final approval by The Recording Academy’s National Board of Trustees.

To commemorate the Grammy Hall’s 40th Anniversary, The Recording Academy has partnered with FX Marketing Group to publish a 150-plus-page collector’s edition book. GRAMMY Hall Of Fame 40th Anniversary Collector’s Edition features in-depth insight into many of the recordings and artists represented in the Hall, including firsthand accounts of the making of Hall Of Fame-inducted recordings by artists like Herbie Hancock, Loretta Lynn, the Mamas And The Papas’ Michelle Phillips, Carlos Santana, James Taylor, the Who’s Pete Townshend, and Bill Withers, among others. The book is available in Walmarts, Targets, and bookstores nationwide as well as at the official online Grammy store.
