The lp is in a plain white cardboard sleeve. One side is blank, the other has the following info on the silver label:

"From Yesterday to Tomorrow"

From The Baltimore Gas + Electric Company Film
recorded by Charlie Byrd and his group
Original score by Joe Byrd 1969

There are no separate tracks, just one long block of music broken up into interludes. You get folky acoustic guitar with occasional accompaniment of other instruments (flute, violin, harpsicord). There's also a jazzy number.

I can't find any reference to the film or record anywhere.

I have that same record, Mr sailor. Pretty spiffy. I've also been looking for any info on this. Nothing significant so far.

Thanks for the feedback! The only related thing I could find was some short Raymond Scott instrumentals for Baltimore Gas & Electric on Youtube. The Charlie Byrd record is much more substantial--at least 25 minutes worth of material, I would say. Sure would like to see the documentary.
