Grammy Awards show for recorded music released in 1969.
The Grammy Award ceremonies weren't televised in the 1960s. The awards were handed out and later a TV special featuring the winning performers/songs was broadcast under the title "The Best on Record" on NBC. For this year the awards were announced in April except for the Record of the Year which was announced by Sammy Davis Jr. on the telecast. Davis had taped an announcement for each of the five nominees so even he didn't know until the broadcast which song won-Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In by The Fifth Dimension.
