Joe Smith

More than 25 years ago, retired music executive Joe Smith accomplished a Herculean feat—he got more than 200 celebrated singers, musicians and industry icons to talk about their lives, music, experiences and contemporaries. Those interviews eventually appeared in a book, Off the Record, published in 1988. Then In 2012 Smith donated this treasure trove of unedited sound recordings to the Library of Congress.
