Robert Johnson and B.B. King Songs Added To Grammy Hall of Fame

.
(The Blues) Robert Johnson's original recording of Sweet Home Chicago and B.B. King's 3 O'Clock Blues have been added to the Grammy Hall Of Fame ahead of the 56th annual award ceremony next month.

Johnson's composition, made up from a number of other songs, was released in 1937 with the B side Walking Blues, just a year before his death. It's become one of the most frequently-covered tracks in music history.

B.B. King released his take of Lowell Fulson's 3 O'Clock Blues in 1952. It became his first hit single and also one of the top-selling singles of that year.

The Grammy Hall Of Fame has now inducted 960 recordings, which must be at least 25 years old and demonstrate considerable influence on American culture to qualify for inclusion. See who else made the list here.
