Steely Dan, Al Green Music Join National Recording Registry

Comstock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- Steely Dan's classic album Aja and Al Green's signature hit, "Let's Stay Together," are among the recordings that the Library of Congress will add to the National Recording Registry this year.

Each year, the Library of Congress selects certain recordings for preservation that "represent the vast imagination and creativity of the nation's aural heritage."

In addition to "Let's Stay Together" and Aja, which produced the smash hit "Peg," the 25 recordings going into the registry this year include a 1908 recording of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," Henri Mancini's "Music from Peter Gunn," Tammy Wynette's "Stand by Your Man," and De La Soul's groundbreaking 1989 hip-hop album 3 Feet High and Rising.
