This year’s notable entrants include The Ramones’ self-titled 1976 debut, Saturday Night Fever by The Bee Gees, Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, The Twist by he who has the chubbiest of checkers (Chubby Checker), Simon & Garfunkel’s Sounds of Silence and Jimmie Davis’s You Are My Sunshine.

Each year the Librarian, with assistance from Library’s National Recording Preservation Board must select 25 albums to be included into the Library of Congress as per the terms of the National Recording Preservation Act of 2000.
