Michael Jackson - Thriller Added To National Registry
MICHAEL JACKSON's THRILLER album has been named among the 25 recordings that will be added to America's National Recording Registry by Library of Congress officials, the CM reported.
The 1982 smash-hit, which has just been remixed, remastered and re-released for its 25th anniversary, joins Smokey Robinson + the Miracles' Tracks of My Tears, Herbie Hancock's Headhunters and For the Roses by Joni Mitchell among the albums and recordings honoured.
Officials pick the 25 recordings to be added to the registry annually.
Those chosen are considered "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" to the history of American music.
