The Recording Academy has inducted 26 iconic songs and albums into its Grammy Hall of Fame.
This year’s inductees include a wide range of singles and albums that are at least 25 years old that “exhibit qualitative or historical significance.”
Among them are Elton's Tiny Dancer; Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline; the Police's Every Breath You Take; Peter Frampton's Frampton Comes Alive; and Eat a Peach from the Allman Brothers.
“Each year it is our distinct privilege to preserve a piece of cultural and music history with our Grammy Hall Of Fame inductions,” stated Deborah Dugan, President/CEO of the Recording Academy.
''We are so honoured to welcome these timeless masterpieces to our growing catalogue of iconic recordings that serve as a beacon of music excellence and diverse expression that will forever impact and inspire generations of creators.”
Now in its 47th year, the Hall of Fame currently has 1,114 recordings. Recordings are reviewed each year by a special member committee containing knowledgeable professionals, with final approval by the Recording Academy’s National Board of Trustees.
