U2, Linda Ronstadt albums set to be preserved in Library of Congress
U2, Linda Ronstadt albums are among 25 recordings that will be preserved in the Library of Congress.
U2'sclassic album "The Joshua Tree," Linda Ronstadt's "Heart Like a Wheel" and an early influential Christian rock album from the 1970s and 1980s have been selected for long-term preservation in the library's National Recording Registry, the Washington Times reported.
Librarian of Congress' James Billington said that the recordings represent part of America's culture and history and as technology continually changes and formats become obsolete, people must ensure that our nation's aural legacy is protected.
U2's 1987 album with hits like "Where the Streets Have no Name" and "With or Without You" was chosen after the library received many public nominations.
