Travesty, I say, travesty! For Elton, Leon and T Bone.
The Union was Rolling Stone’s #3 album of the year…how could it not be nominated? They also gave it 5 stars when they reviewed it. “The Union is a rare gesture in a dying business: an act of gratitude.” If the Grammy jurors can’t recognize the quality, at least they could show some gratitude.
I guess timing is everything…The Union just missed the cutoff for last year’s nominations, and I suppose it has long slipped from the minds of the Grammy powers that be. Which probably isn’t that hard to do.
