Australia: AC/DC Rock ‘n’ Rolls Way Onto National Film and Sound Archives List

From the AAP (via The Herald Sun)

The archives hit play on the latest additions to the registry on Wednesday.

THE 2012 additions to the National Film and Sound Archives’ national register of recorded sounds span almost a century of Australian sounds, including iconic rockers AC/DC.

This year’s new sounds include AC/DC’s It’s A Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock `n’ Roll), Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ 1988 album Tender Prey, and Jimmy Little’s 1963 classic Royal Telephone.

Less well-known to the public are a collection of recordings of more than 40 endangered or extinct indigenous languages, made by linguist Luise Hercus during 35 years of research.

The 2012 additions span almost a century of Australian sounds.
