Music licensing when I have the only copy but there is no copyright?

I have an unlabeled acetate record from the early 60s that contains music and an interview with a late musician, composer and counter-cultural icon of some note. As far as I've been able to figure, I have the only copy and there is no copyright. There is a documentary about this person in the works and the director/producer is interested in using this material. Someone else, the operator of a long-running fansite, would like to release it as part of a retrospective album next year. I've already offered that it be used in the film for free. Is it possible for me to get compensation for its inclusion on any audio releases? [more inside]

What was this music (Athens?) documentary?

Help a workaholic have a productive break.

I am working on a PhD in music theory and cognition. I hate wasting time, but sometimes my brain needs a break from reading/writing/listening/analyzing. Help me create a list of films and documentaries that relate in some way to my field so that I can stare at a screen sometimes and still feel like I'm feeding my unquenchable desire to learn about music and mind.
