White House on the Moon!

Saturnites,

A kind of fun discovery. A couple years ago the Library of Congress got the official White House collection of LP's, hundreds of discs in categories of classical, popular, jazz, country, and spoken word. These records were selected for the White House (Nixon, Ford, and Carter I think) by a panel of experts whose charge was to pick the best performances by the best artists. Thanks to this panel, and unknown until now, a Saturn occupied the White House for a time, and now belongs to the LOC (our first!). It's Magic City, not too surprisingly. A later edition. It has the standard white jacket w/black printing (Saturn 711-Monaural) and the lable is Thoth Integallactic 711 (and 403) Stereo. Mint mint mint. I guess Tricky Dick did not groove. How different things might have been if he had.
