Recordings by Donna Summer, Prince and Dolly Parton named to the National Recording Registry (USA)

The voices of former slaves, the sounds of Native American culture, the creative wordplay of Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper’s Delight," Donna Summer's electric 1977 hit, and the only surviving recording of a stage icon are among the sound recordings selected for induction into the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress. Marking the 10th anniversary of the registry, Librarian of Congress James H. Billington selected 25 sound recordings that will be preserved as cultural, artistic and/or historical treasures for generations to come
