Santa Monica, CA (Top40 Charts/ Recording Academy) Continuing the tradition of preserving and celebrating great recordings, The Recording Academy® has announced the newest additions to its legendary GRAMMY Hall Of Fame®. This latest round of inducted recordings continues to highlight diversity and recording excellence, and acknowledges both singles and album recordings of all genres at least 25 years old that exhibit qualitative or historical significance. Recordings are reviewed annually 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. With 27 new titles, the list currently totals 960 and is on display at the GRAMMY Museum® at L.A. LIVE.

"Spanning the 1930s to the 1980s, this year's GRAMMY Hall Of Fame entries represent a diverse collection of influential and historically significant recordings," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. "Memorable and inspiring, these recordings are proudly added to our growing catalog — knowing that they have become a part of our musical, social, and cultural history."

Representing a great variety of tracks and albums, the 2014 GRAMMY Hall Of Fame inductees range from the Mary Poppins Original Cast Sound Track album to Sugarhill Gang's early rap hit "Rapper's Delight." Also added to the highly regarded list are the Drifters' "Under The Boardwalk," B.B. King's "3 O'Clock Blues," Kris Kristofferson's self-titled debut album, Dolly Parton's "Jolene," the Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Women," and U2's album The Joshua Tree. Other inductees include the original soundtrack from Woodstock and recordings by James Brown, Chicago, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Miles Davis, Run-D.M.C., B.J. Thomas, and Neil Young, among others.

Celebrating the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame'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. Legendary artists provide exclusive firsthand accounts of the making of their GRAMMY Hall Of Fame-inducted recordings, including Mel Brooks, 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 full-color book also highlights the legacy of the Beatles, the group with the most titles inducted into the Hall. The book is available online at the official GRAMMY store, and is sold in Barnes & Noble, Target and Walmart stores as well as on newsstands nationwide and at the GRAMMY Museum in downtown Los Angeles.
