    Please, no politics.

    Just interesting that now both Bill and Hillary have won Grammy Awards. In fact, Bill actually defeated Hillary this year since she was also nominated.

    Anyway, the PentaTone recording of "Peter and The Wolf" won the Grammy for "Best Spoken Word Album for Children", which also featured narrations from Sophia Loren and former Soviet Union president Mikhail Gorbachev.

    Here's the article.

    Actually, most people are unaware that there was a song about Bill long before most of the world had heard about him - PRESIDENT GAS - as performed by the Psychic Furs [​IMG]

    Then don't mention Bill Clinton. [​IMG]

    Seriously, it was certainly interesting to see an SACD win a grammy. All the Pentatone discs I have are very good. [​IMG]

    I am disappointed Bill's previous recording effort, The Pres Blows didn't get nominated for a Grammy in the jazz catagories. [​IMG]

    I actually have the above CD....recorded in a jazz club in the Czech Republic during Clinton's first term, he was off-key on most of the songs.

    I just read the official Grammy list and there are 2 other albums available on SACD that won:

    1. Alisson Krauss & Union Station: Live

    2. San Francisco Symphony (Michael Tilson Thomas) Mahler Symphony #3.

    Not a bad show. [​IMG]

    Good for Bill! Not that I put that much into the Grammys anymore.
