Scarce & Weird Con Edison Nuclear Power record - 1971 - with booklet For Sale
Scarce & Weird Con Edison Nuclear Power record - 1971 - with booklet:
Mostly I collect and occasionally sell souvenir records of industrial musicals. (See my other items for sale if you\'re not sure what I\'m talking about.) But along the way I often happen to acquire other strange records, and occasionally I like to re-home a few.
So here we have an album released by New York\'s Con Edison utility in 1971, talking about how nuclear power works and its advantages. It\'s all spoken, with various \"average people\" asking questions and Con Edison experts doing the explaining.
Why a record? The head of Con Edison explains at the outset that they get a lot of questions on this topic and it was thought that a record album would be an interesting way to answer them. Not necessarily the BEST way, but an interesting way. To hedge their bets, Con Edison included an elaborate booklet in the album\'s gatefold that duplicates everything that\'s talked about on the record.
I\'m not going to explain how nuclear power plants work or why nuclear energy is a great option for America\'s growing energy needs in the 1970\'s. If you want to know all that, I encourage you to buy the record! I WILL tell you that the record is in minty condition, probably unplayed until I tested it, and the album cover is also very nice. The booklet is also very sharp, but it\'s become detached from the inside of the album. Maybe due to radiation, who could say.
If you enjoy making projects with sampled audio, this may be just the thing for you. Or you might love technical discussions of nuclear power plants circa the Nixon administration. (If that\'s your subculture, good for you. Fly your freak flag.) Or maybe you appreciate this album as an odd physical object, or something with which to perplex friends who come over and check out your vinyl. There are many reasons to offer!

I combine on shipping to save you money if you buy multiple records.
