Zoomers Barbara Streisand and Renee Fleming are being immortalized by the U.S. Library of Congress National Recording Registry.
Streisand’s signature tune “People” will join the most recent release on the list, “Signatures,” the 1997 pop album by classical soprano Fleming.
The rest of the material spans wax cylinders comprising demonstration recordings and musical performances made in London by Thomas Edison’s friend and agent Colonel George Gouraud in 1888, to more recent works like the late David Bowie’s 1972 album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Eagles “Greatest Hits” from 1975.
