Albums From U2 And Linda Rondstadt To Be Preserved By Library of Congress
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.02.2014



Billboard reports that the US Library of Congress are set to preserve 25 albums from the 1970s and 1980s including U2's The Joshua Tree, Linda Rondstadt's Heart Like A Wheel and recordings of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son" and the Everly Brothers' "Cathy's Clown". The recordings were chosen for their cultural, historical or aesthetic importance. Here are some quotes from those involved:

Librarian of Congress James Billington on the albums reflecting America's culture: "As technology continually changes and formats become obsolete, we must ensure that our nation's aural legacy is protected."

Ronstadt on her album being selected: "In retrospect, I don't think I realized it at the time how precarious my situation was in terms of my career where if I hadn't had a success with that particular record, I think it would have been game over. I just wish I had done a little better job singing. If I listened to that record now, it would probably kill me. I never listen to my own stuff."

Ronstadt on the Everly Brothers being included: "They were a huge influence on all of us. They had a sound like no other and a way of crafting and weaving harmonies that was like nobody else could do."
