Not listed on this site, and newly in my possession (Dec.2016):

• "From Yesterday To Tomorrow," performed by Charlie Byrd and his band.
• Several untitled pieces composed by his brother Joe Byrd.
• Plain white cover.
• Single-sided vinyl. The B-Side is covered in a grid of squares, and has no music.
• Approximately 22 minutes long. A mix of small combo jazz and classical guitar solos.
• Non-commercial record. No label. No catalog number.

The music scored a half-hour 1969 film about Calvert Cliffs, a nuclear power plant in Maryland. This was a promotional film for the public, produced by the Baltimore Gas and Electric Company, documenting construction of the controversial plant.

There is no record of this album's existence, anywhere on the internet. There is barely any record of the movie's existence, other than some old newspaper archives. That said, l would add this undocumented "release" to Discogs, but too many rules. I'll input something incorrectly and get put in a time-out. So instead, this comment.

I'm willing to sell. If you're interested send me a message.
