Library of Congress streaming music

This is like some wonderful dream!  I’m glad that someone in the recording industry has the sense to hand some stuff over for proper digital preservation.  It would be nice if they ALL did it, but this is a good start.  Now I just need to refresh my memory of the extensive Universal music catalog.

It’s actually quite a charming building in Ann Arbor, MI.
