Every year the National Recording Registry chooses to preserve a few sound recordings deemed to be "culturally, historically or aesthetically important, and/or inform or reflect life in the United States."

They just announced this year's list of recordings, and there are a couple Louisiana recordings on the list:

- Amede Ardoin and Dennis McGee. Cajun-Creole Columbia releases. (1929)

- Leadbelly "Goodnight Irene" (1933)

- Jelly Roll Morton. Interviews conducted by Alan Lomax. (1938)

- Huey P. Long. "Every Man a King" speech. (1935) - Not a music recording, but I couldn't resist listing it! ;)
