The article reports that The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" made the cut for the annual crop of 50 sound recordings selected for preservation at the Library of Congress at Washington D.C. Album was the first foreign recording chosen by Librarian James Billington since the government's extensive archive began the preservation process in 2000. Billington said that this year's list attests to the diversity of significant recorded sound in lives not only music of many types, but political addresses, comedy, sports, poetry, sermons and machinery. One of the more unusual selections is the bestselling Okeh Laughing Record of 1922. The Library calls it "a comic novelty recording," which consists of a trumpeter struggling to play a solo.
