Re: [ARSCLIST] New LoC Recording Registry

I was surprised to note that in the description of Nat  Wills'   "No 
News...", reference is made to the servant and his master.  I don't  recall that 
was the relationship at all. He was a wealthy man with a hired  servant.

stuff was heavily copped from  James Brown, Motown, Stax, Duke/Peacock,

"Tommy" and perhaps "Quadrophenia." Those were truly  something new and

This is  par for course, really.  The date for Brown's Live at the
Apollo was  wrong before.

Also, any one want to place a bet on how many more  British,
Boomer-idol rock stars get theirs before an American punk or  metal
band?  I find it fascinating that there's plenty of proto-  and
post-punk, but no punk.  Kinda want to go to Vegas and place a  bet
that we'll see "Stairway to Heaven" on the registry before  "Blitzkrieg
Bop," "Nervous Breakdown," or "Master of Puppets" (or even  "Shout at
the Devil").
