A Grammy Award

Hi Peggy: G’day from Sydney, Australia!  

Thanks so much for your fantastic Shirley Bassey blog.  I love looking at it each day. Not sure if you are aware but Shirley’s original 1964 recording of “Goldfinger” is being inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame this year.  You can check this out at the following URL.

Great news and well deserved as it’s one of Shirley’s very best recordings (I’m sure you agree.)  It’s one of 70 recordings that are being inducted this year. Thanks again for this great blog and keep up the good work!

Warm regards, Paul

G’day Paul,

That’s great news.

New Year Greetings to all Ozzies and Kiwis, you are superb fans.

The Grammy Hall of Fame Award is a special Grammy award established in 1973 to honour recordings that are at least twenty-five years old and that have “qualitative or historical significance”.

The Grammys (originally called the Gramophone Awards) are considered the highest music honour, the U.S. record industry’s equivalent to the Academy Awards (Oscars) for motion pictures
