The Who, Etta James, for US National Registery The Who Tickets

Famed tracks enter the Library Of Congress

The Who, Etta James, for US National Registery
Etta James' ‘At Last’ and The Who’s ‘My Generation’ are among 25 of the latest pieces submitted to the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress.

The recordings are filed as audio documents, and are part of an annual endeavor by the Library's National Recording Preservation Board to select "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" pieces that are at least 10 years old, reports Variety.

The total number of recordings now stands at 275.

Among the other entries this year are violinist Jascha Heifetz's acoustic recordings for Victor Records from 1917-24 and NBC Radio's coverage of opera singer Marian Anderson's Easter Sunday recital at the Lincoln Memorial in 1939, plus the original Broadway cast recording of ‘West Side Story’ from 1957.
