Salterbarty Tales is the debut album by the American electronic band Earthstar. Salterbarty Tales was recorded in 1977 and 1978 and released by Moontower Records in 1978. The album is the only release to feature significant grand piano sections performed by Craig Wuest with relatively basic synthesizer work and far less multitracking when compared to later Earthstar albums. It is also the only album not to feature tape loop instruments: the mellotron and the Birotron.
Salterbarty Tales has never been reissued and has been described as "impossible to find" by Earthstar guitarist Dennis Rea. A few copies sold online in 2007 ranged in price from US $75 to US $125.
Famous quotes containing the word tales:
“Are you there, Africa with the bulging chest and oblong thigh? Sulking Africa, wrought of iron, in the fire, Africa of the millions of royal slaves, deported Africa, drifting continent, are you there? Slowly you vanish, you withdraw into the past, into the tales of castaways, colonial museums, the works of scholars.”
—Jean Genet (19101986)
