Library Of Congress Adds To National Recording Registry
WASHINGTON (AP) — The music of Lauryn Hill, Radiohead and Sly and the Family Stone will be preserved for all time. The Library of Congress has added the albums “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” ”OK Computer” and “Stand!” to its National Recording Registry. It preserves recordings of cultural or historical significance. “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” by The Righteous Brothers has been added. So has “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King. The self-titled albums of Joan Baez and of The Doors were added as well. The earliest recordings come from the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Perhaps the silliest recording on the list: Steve Martin’s “A Wild And Crazy Guy” album.
