The Ernest V. Stoneman album I mentioned earlier did not win the Grammy for best Album Notes. Writer and producer Hank Sapoznik had been nominated for the historic country music album. The winner was the 50th anniversary release of Miles Davis’ ‘Kind of Blue’.
Polk Miller and his Old South Quartette album was nominated for best Historical Album, but also failed to win. The winner in the historical category was ‘Art of Field Recording Volume I, a compilation produced by a company called Dust to Digital. Great name. Hank Williams: The Unreleased Recordings should be eligible in this category next year.
Alison Krauss won several Grammy Awards for her collaboration with rocker Robert Plant, including Record of the Year, and Album of the Year.
Ricky Scaggs won best Bluegrass Album for ‘Honoring The Fathers of Bluegrass: Tribute to 1946 and 1947’.
