The guy who wrote this article is a self-publicist and a jerk. The fact that it was published by the Smithsonian is cause for despair. The deposit of the records was just a long-lived publicity stunt. I have seen a list of the contents and was not impressed. I believe all the records are published and most are well known.
To quote from the article:
"I left music criticism to write novels and movies a decade ago: To what extent must fact be blended with fancy to create the willing suspension of disbelief?"

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Interesting REcord Find article in the Smithsonian mag this month
I just happened to find this last night while reading my new Smithsonian.
I don't think this was posted before. Maybe it was (busy month here) but wanted to share with those who didn't see it.
Sorry if it was covered before.
