These will be the second albums from Neil Young and Rush to receive Heritage Prize designation. All other acts are receiving their first such recognition.
The winners were chosen from four short lists, each representing a different musical era and curated by a Heritage Prize jury of music historians and music media. Two winners for each era were chosen — one by public vote and one by the jury.
