SANTA MONICA, CA (Recording Academy) - The Recording Academy announced the newest additions to its GRAMMY Hall Of Fame, adding 25 recordings to a timeless list that now includes 684 titles. The Hall Of Fame serves as a celebration and reminder of the triumphs and achievements of the recording arts. Selections are drawn from all major categories of music, acknowledging the diversity of musical expression for which The Recording Academy has become renowned.

"This year's inductees represent an array of genres, including folk, blues, R&B, and country as well as musical shows," said Recording Academy President Neil Portnow. "The GRAMMY Hall of Fame is one of the Academy's most prized endeavors and it represents the most significant recorded musical masterpieces that have had a profound impact on our culture. They all greatly deserve to be commemorated."

GRAMMY Hall Of Fame selections include original cast recordings from musical shows Camelot and Hair, as well as show recordings of "Fascinating Rhythm" by Fred and Adele Astaire, "Ol' Man River" by Paul Robeson and "Yankee Doodle Boy" by Billy Murray. Recordings also chosen this year include B.B. King's Live At The Regal, the O'Jays' "Love Train," the Carter Family's "Keep On The Sunny Side," Bob Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home, Bob Marley and the Wailers' Exodus,and Barbra Streisand's The Barbra Streisand Album. Other artists with selections include Jimmy Forrest, the Miracles, Anton Karas, Doc Watson, Bessie Smith, and the Jimi Hendrix Experience.

The Recording Academy's National Trustees established the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame in 1973 to honor recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance that are at least 25 years old. Hall Of Fame recordings are reviewed annually by a special member committee of eminent and knowledgeable professionals from all branches of the recording arts and final approval is made by Recording Academy Trustees. For more information about the Hall Of Fame or the 48th Annual GRAMMY Awards (to be broadcast live on Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the CBS Television Network), please visit www.grammy.com.
