Judy Garland's hit single "Over The Rainbow"; the original-cast album of "The Wiz"; the rap group N.W.A's seminal album, "Straight Outta Compton"; the Eagles' 1976 "Their Greatest Hits"; and the national anthem of black America have been designated as aural treasures worthy of preservation as part of America's patrimony. Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden today named these recordings and 20 other titles to the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress because of their cultural, artistic and historical importance to American society and the nation's audio heritage.
"This year's exciting list gives us a full range of sound experiences," said Hayden. "These sounds of the past enrich our understanding of the nation's cultural history and our history in general."
