In order to qualify for selection, a recording-both singles and album recordings of all genres-must be at least 25 years old and “exhibit qualitative or historical significance,” according to a press release. Recordings are reviewed annually by a 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 the 26 new titles, the list, now in its 43rd year, currently totals 1,013 recordings and is on display at the Grammy Museum at L.A. LIVE.
