Paul McCartney[edit]

3 wins? I wouldn't doubt it with all he has done... but judging from the very tables that exist with this article... I only see 1 win, with The Beatles. I see no solo wins... or any wins with Wings. Is this fact accurate?

I don't see where the article says McCartney had three wins. It does say three solo nominations, which agrees with the big table -- Foetusized (talk) 02:29, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Differentiation[edit]

Could someone explain how "Album of the Year" is different from "Record of the Year"?--Xtreambar 22:49, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Yes. "Album" is for albums (i.e. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band) and "record" is for singles (like 2006's winner "Not Ready To Make Nice").

Record of the Year and Song of the Year are different - record is the best single of the year, Song of the Year is a songwriting award. Doc Strange

So I realize the section I just removed was requested by the user above me, and I wanted to explain why I removed it. Besides being written in a manner most unsuited for Wikipedia--very conversational, misspellings, etc--it's also fairly superfluous with the Record of the Year article very adequately explaining the confusion between the two. Because the phrase "album of the year" should be self explanatory, with the confusion coming from the term "record of the year," it's more appropriate for the disambiguation to be in the record of the year page. 8bits (talk) 06:57, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Additionally both the main Grammy Awards and List of Grammy Award Categories page includes a description of both categories. 8bits (talk) 07:03, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Can someone please note that...[edit]

Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, The Beatles, and Lady Gaga are the only four artists in history who have received three Grammy “Album Of The Year” nominations in a row. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.125.13.190 (talk) 06:56, 1 December 2011 (UTC) Please also note that Lauryn Hill is cited as having won two years in a row - 1999 and 2000. From the table below and the fact that she did not seem to have a release, this is not possible. I believe that Santana did win in 2000. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.206.125.192 (talk) 02:39, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Basic Massive Error: Years[edit]

The awards are for the *past* year, not for the year of the ceremony, for example Tapestry by Carole King is Album of the Year 1971 etc, see the Grammy database .... --E-Kartoffel (talk) 23:14, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
