Yesterday, Today, & FOREVER The King of Pop

“Thriller” – Library of Congress National Recording Registry

The Library of Congress has announced new recordings to be placed into the National Recording Registry.

The
Registry was established as a result of the National Recording
Preservation Act of 2000 to recognize and preserve recordings that are
"culturally, historically or aesthetically significant." Records must
be at least ten years old to be considered and are nominated by members
of the public. The final decision is made by the Librarian of Congress,
who is currently James H. Billington.

This year’s group covers
the entire spectrum of genres from jazz and big band to folk and blues
to rock and R&B. Also included are historical spoken word
recordings of note.

This years "preliminary" inductee list includes the one and only King of Pop! – Thriller: Short film & Sound Recordings.


The "final" version of the list is set to be released May 14th.
