Album Packages for Björk and Woody Guthrie Win Grammy Awards

Last weekend, on Sunday February 10, The Recording Academy presented the 55th Grammy Awards, honouring “artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position”. I am briefly taking some time off from our Valentype contest – only two days left to send in those submissions! – to give an overview of the nominees and winners of categories that are of interest for our My Type of Music-loving readers: categories 60 and 61, respectively Best Recording Package and Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package, and categories 77 and 78, for Best Short Form Music Video and Best Long Form Music Video.
