In announcing the Grammy Hall of Fame's latest additions, The Recording Academy president/CEO Neil Portnow said, "Spanning more than 50 years, the 2016 entries are an outstanding collection, marked by both historical and cultural significance. These works have influenced and inspired both music creators and fans for generations."
The GRAMMY Hall Of Fame was established by The Recording Academy's National Trustees in 1973 to honor recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance that are at least 25 years old. Inductees are selected annually by a special member committee of eminent and knowledgeable professionals from all branches of the recording arts.
