The catalog contains recordings by music greats such as opera Singer Enrico Caruso, Broadway legend Al Jolson, whistling virtuoso Charles Kellogg, composer and band leader John Philip Sousa, and thousands of other artists. Now, thanks to the Library of Congress, you can travel back in time and listen to American musical history.
