London, Nov 22 (ANI): James Brown's records along with AC/DC, Billy Joel and Paul McCartney and Wings are among the latest to be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame collection.

It is a catalogue of nearly 1000 historically and culturally significant albums and singles celebrating outstanding recordings across all genres. 2013 marks the list's 40th anniversary, the BBC reported.

Neil Portnow from The Recording Academy said the new entries "have inspired and influenced" generations of fans.

This latest round of inductees includes the late James Brown's 1965 single 'I Got You (I Feel Good),' 'Piano Man' by Billy Joel - released in 1973 and Bob Dylan's 1964 track 'The Times They Are A-Changin.'

As for albums, 1973's 'Band On The Run' by Paul McCartney and Wings has been recognised alongside Elton John's self-titled album from 1970, 'Back In Black' by AC/DC from 1980 and Whitney Houston's eponymous debut released in 1985.

Other artists with records now on the list include Little Richard, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra for his Theme from 'New York, New York' and Willie Mae 'Big Mama' Thornton for the first recording of 'Hound Dog' in 1953, a record Elvis Presley covered three years later.

The collection, which is on display at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, now features 933 records.

An annual review by a committee of professionals from the recording arts industry decide which records are put forward, with final approval given by a board of trustees at The Recording Academy.

"We are proud to add them to our growing catalogue of outstanding recordings that have become part of our musical, social, and cultural history," Portnow said of the new additions. (ANI)
