Amazon

The National Recording Preservation Board’s National Recording Registry is announcing their list of historical recordings they feel should be saved.  

This year there are 25 recordings going into the Library of Congress.

The artists include Minnesota’s own Prince, disco queen Donna Summer and Grateful Dead. A tape of the Dead’s concert from May of 1977 at Cornell University is also on the list. That show has long been thought to be one of the band’s best performances ever.  Here’s the track listing:

Set One:

New Minglewood Blues
Loser
El Paso
They Love Each Other
Jack Straw
Deal
Lazy Lightnin’
Supplication
Brown-Eyed Women
Mama Tried
Row Jimmy

Set Two:

Other recordings marked for preservation include Bo Diddley’s Bo Diddly/I’m a Man, Vince Guaraldi Trio’s theme from A Charlie Brown Christmas and Booker T’s Green Onions.

The 25 recordings were selected by their historical and cultural significance. All recordings chosen for preservation must be at least 10 years old.
