U2's Joshua Tree to join American archives

4/2/2014

U2's iconic album The Joshua Tree is set to join the history books after it was chosen for preservation by America's Library of Congress. The 1987 record, which spawned hits including I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For and With or Without You, is among 25 works that will join the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry (NRR). Linda Ronstadt's Grammy-winning album Heart Like a Wheel will also be preserved, as will The Everly Brothers' track Cathy's Clown, Stephen Sondheim's cast recording of Sweeney Todd and Leonard Cohen's anthem Hallelujah. After announcing the entries on Tuesday (01Apr14), Librarian of Congress James Billington said, "As technology continually changes and formats become obsolete, we must ensure that our nation's aural legacy is protected."
