On Jan. 26, 2014, the Rolling Stones' "Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965" won a Grammy Award for Best Historical Album. The winners were announced at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. "Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965" is the soundtrack to the Rolling Stones documentary of the same name that was released on DVD/Blu-ray in November 2012. Recordings eligible for nomination had to be released in the U.S. between Nov. 1, 2012 and Oct. 31, 2013.
CBS had the live telecast of Grammy Awards in the U.S., but most of the Grammy Awards are given out during the non-televised portion of the ceremony. The non-televised portion of the ceremony is streamed live on the official Grammy Awards website. The Rolling Stones were not at the awards show.
The Grammy Award for Best Historical Album goes to the album's producer(s) and engineer(s). Therefore, the award went to "Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965" compilation producers Teri Landi, Andrew Loog Oldham and Steve Rosenthal, as well as mastering engineer Bob Ludwig.
As previously reported, Oldham (who was the Rolling Stones' manager from 1963 to 1967) is also set to be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 10, 2014.
The Best Historical Album category had a tie: The other winner was Bill Withers' "The Complete Sussex And Columbia Albums." The compilation producer is Leo Sacks. The mastering engineers are Joseph M. Palmaccio, Tom Ruff and Mark Wilder.
