SANTA MONICA, Calif. (Dec. 7, 2010) — In continuing its mission to preserve and celebrate

music year-round, The Recording Academy® announces the newest additions to its legendary

GRAMMY Hall Of Fame® collection. Established by The Academy’s National Trustees in

1973, the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame was created to honor recordings of lasting qualitative or

special member committee of eminent and knowledgeable professionals from all branches of the

recording arts, and final approval is made by The Recording Academy Trustees. With 30 new

titles, the list currently totals 881 and is displayed at The GRAMMY Museum®.

"The GRAMMY Hall Of Fame represents all genres of music, acknowledging the diversity of

musical expression for which The Academy has become renowned,” said Neil Portnow,

President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “These musical treasures have brought us timeless

recordings, and each of them deserves to be memorialized. These recordings are living evidence

that music remains an indelible part of our culture.”

This dynamic group of inductees range from the Beatles’ “Penny Lane” to the Jackson 5’s “I’ll Be

There.” Other recordings include Al Jolson’s “My Mammy,” the Marvelettes’ “Hey Mr.

Postman,” Willie Nelson’s “On The Road Again,” the Original Broadway Cast recording of,

Brigadoon, Prince & The Revolution’s Purple Rain, and Otis Redding’s “I’ve Been Loving You

Too Long.” Other inductees with selections include Joan Baez, Mildred Bailey, Ray Charles,

Jimmy Cliff, Fats Domino, Duke Ellington & His Famous Orchestra, Al Green, Sergei

Rachmaninoff, and Hank Williams With His Drifting Cowboys, among others.
