Albums Added to the National Registry: Fleetwood Mac, Miami Sound Machine, Temptations & More

The National Recording Registry is a list of sound recordings that “are culturally, historically, or aesthetically important, and/or inform or reflect life in the United States.” Here’s WOGA’s look at the latest additions..

“My Girl” is now in the national registry. The Temptations song — along with Fleetwood Mac’s album Rumours, the Sound of Music soundtrack, Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine’s 1987 smash “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You,” Run-DMC’s Raising Hell, and more — are among the latest 25 additions to the National Recording Registry. “This annual celebration of recorded sound reminds us of our varied and remarkable American experience,” said Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden. “The unique trinity of historic, cultural and aesthetic significance reflected in the National Recording Registry each year is an opportunity for reflection on landmark moments, diverse cultures and shared memories — all reflected in our recorded soundscape.” The recordings must be at least ten years old to be included in the collection. The 2017 additions bring the registry’s total to 500 albums and songs.
