voice one:

rolling stones

many of the latest additions to the registry come from popular music. one of them is "blue suede shoes," recorded by carl perkins in nineteen fifty-five, a year before the version by elvis presley.

another addition is the nineteen sixty-five hit "satisfaction" by the rolling stones. also, paul simon's nineteen eighty-six album "graceland," recorded with the south african singing group ladysmith black mambazo.

(music)

but the list also includes classical pieces like "il mio tesoro," from "don giovanni," sung by tenor john mccormack in nineteen sixteen. and there are spoken word recordings, like one from nineteen sixty by comedian bob newhart.

bob marley

social protest is also represented. for example, the album "the wailers burnin'" with the reggae singer bob marley is from nineteen seventy-three.

(music)

voice two:

that was "get up, stand up," from the last album that bob marley released under the name "the wailers."

but let us begin our musical trip back in the nineteen twenties -- the jazz age. jelly roll morton was one of the pioneers of jazz. he helped spread its popularity in new orleans, chicago and throughout the country.
