The United States Library of Congress is the de facto national library of America. Its National Recording Preservation Board annually selects musical and spoken recordings of importance to add to its National Recording Registry. This year they’ve chosen recordings as diverse of Clarence Williams, Mahler, Julie London, and John Coltrane. Among them is the wonderful 1976 Clifton Chenier release, Bogalusa Boogie. This year is the 40th anniversary of this amazing session, recorded in a single day in Bogalusa, Louisiana. Clifton left us many years ago, but his recordings live on!
