Six recordings set for Hall of Fame

The Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations,” Tony Bennett’s “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” and four other recordings were named to the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences’ Hall of Fame.

Also named Tuesday to the Hall of Fame were Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind” (1962), Mamie Smith & Her Jazz Hounds’ “Crazy Blues” (1920), Kurt Weill’s “The Three Penny Opera” (1954) and “Miles Ahead” by Miles Davis with Gil Evans & His Orchestra (1958).

The Beach Boys’ 1966 song, Bennett’s 1962 hit and the others will be formally announced Jan. 6 at a NARAS press conference to reveal nominations for the 36th annual Grammy Awards.

Academy trustees created the Hall of Fame awards to honor “early recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance.” The Hall of Fame already has 100 recordings voted in by a committee of experts who reviewed recommendations from academy members.

The Grammy Awards will be telecast on CBS March 1 from Radio City Music Hall in New York City and hosted by Garry Shandling.
