The following may be of interest to some.
The National Recording Registry, which is held by the Library of Congress, which preserves records of great cultural significance now comprises 500 titles
Recordings must be at least 10 years old before they become eligible for the registry.
Just added are:
◾Sitting on Top of the World - Mississippi Sheiks (1930)
◾King Biscuit Time (radio) - Sonny Boy Williamson II and others (1965)

Cool. I would also include their mention of Folk Songs of the Hills - Merle Travis, a great album.

Rumors - not so much. Fabulous to see zero Eagles titles. I can handle Take It Easy about once every five years, whereupon I will crank the car stereo and sing along at high volume and then... forget it for another five years  :P

Thanks for the post. I've been going through previous years and finding more than a few pleasant surprises--but given the talent, I shouldn't be at all surprised.
