Sex Pistols, Otis Redding, Lou Reed records added to Grammy Hall Of Fame


Classic records by the Sex Pistols, Otis Redding, Lou Reed, Bob Dylan and more have become the latest to be added to the Grammy Hall of Fame, which aims to symbolically recognise ‘the tradition of preserving and celebrating timeless recordings’.

“With recordings dating as early as 1909 through the late ’80s, this year’s Grammy Hall Of Fame entries not only represent a diverse collection of influential and historically significant recordings but also reflect the changing climate of music through the decades,” Neil Portnow, president/CEO of The Recording Academy, says.

“These memorable, inspiring and iconic recordings are proudly added to our growing catalogue — knowing that they have become a part of our musical, social, and cultural history.”

The Sex Pistols’ debut, and only album ‘Never Mind The Bollocks…’ is now in there, as is Kraftwerk‘s ‘Autobahn‘ LP, Bob Dylan’s ‘Blood On The Tracks‘, Neil Young‘s ‘Harvest‘ and Leonard Cohen‘s ‘Songs of Leonard Cohen‘, as well as classic singles such as Chic‘s ‘Le Freak‘, Otis Redding’s ‘Try a Little Tenderness‘ and Lou Reed’s ‘Walk On The Wild Side‘.
