LP version in tip-on sleeve. Those who've dirtied their fingers searching high and low for analog synth nuggets can rejoice at the arrival of under-the-radar synthesizer maverick Rocket Robert Moore. This first-time reissue is less a reissue than an exhumation, as Moore originally released his singular, unique 1982 Rocket Robert LP in edition of 142 hand screen printed copies on his own Salem, Oregon-based Future Records; few copies circulated outside Oregon. Rocket Robert drifts in the backward-looking sounds of early synth innovators while also mining the kraut-tinged moments of punk-era instro-synthesizer explorers and the first breaths of synthesizer-pop - rather than carrying similarities to the new wave that was then taking hold of the masses. Moore's debut is simultaneously lighthearted and shot through with ominous oscillations, and offers up a darkly-throbbing, otherworldly vibe that is sure to ensnare synthesizer-heads, beat-diggers, and those searching the margins of the private-press phenomenon alike. RIYL Delia Derbyshire, Fad Gadget, Mort Garson, Gershon Kingsley, Martin Rev, Morton Subotnick, etc. Includes two previously-unreleased, spaced-out electro-pop songs from the album sessions. Insert features informative liner notes by Dave Segal (staff writer for Seattle's alternative weekly The Stranger) based on interviews with Moore, as well as rare photos from Moore's archives. Original master tape sound.

Each record is protected within its record sleeve by a white vellum anti-dust sleeve.
