Just of the 25 recordings that have been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2018

Classic rock recordings from Aerosmith (1973’s “Dream On”), Queen (1975’s A Night at the Opera), David Bowie (1969’s “Space Oddity”) and Jimi Hendrix (1970’s Band of Gypsys) as well as an 1878 recording from Thomas Edison (“Mary Had a Little Lamb”) are among the newest inductions to the Grammy Hall Of Fame®. The announcement from the Recording Academy™ today (Jan. 16) “recognizes a diverse range of both singles and album recordings at least 25 years old that exhibit qualitative or historical significance.”

Among those also being honored: Linda Ronstadt (Heart Like a Wheel), Johnny Cash (At Folsom Prison), the Four Tops (“I Can’t Help Myself”), the Rolling Stones (“Paint it Black”), Leon Russell (“A Song For You”) and recordings by Nirvana, Mike Oldfield and Sam Cooke. (See the complete list below.)

Each year recordings are reviewed by a special member committee comprised of professionals from all branches of the recording arts, with final approval by the Recording Academy’s National Board of Trustees. With 25 new titles, the Hall, now in its 45th year, currently totals 1,063 recordings and is on display at GRAMMY Museum® L.A. Live.

“The GRAMMY Hall Of Fame strives to embody the changing climate of music throughout these past decades, always acknowledging the diversity of musical expression for which the Academy has become known,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “Iconic and inspiring, these recordings are an integral part of our musical, social, and cultural history, and we are proud to have added them to our growing catalog.”
