"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.cite web
