Lauryn Hill's 'The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill' Has Been Selected For The Library Of Congress Archive

Lauryn Hill - The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill R&B Albums

As if she wasn't already cherished by the OKP realm and her peers, Lauryn Hill will soon join the ranks of Miles Davis, Aretha Franklin, B.B. King and literally every musical or artistic pioneer you can imagine as an inductee of the Library Of Congress. The LOC does an annual round-up of recordings (both musical and oratory) worthy of their immortalizing stamp, which is to say, those they find need to be "recognized for their cultural, artistic and/or historical significance to American society and the nation’s audio legacy." And with this year's ballot, Miss Hill's solo debut The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill will be entered into the care of a federally sanctioned group of preservationist, who will ensure that five-time Grammy-winning record lives on forever. Other entrants in the 2014 class include Sly & The Family Stone's Stand!, Ben E. King's "Stand By Me," The Doors' self-titled debut, Steve Martin's Wild And Crazy Guy, Radiohead's OK Computer and an assortment of other legendary recordings from music's most celebrated pioneers. You can view the full list of inductee by hitting the link below, where you can also see what is perhaps the most academic analysis of TMOLH ever written.
