Mama Get Me A Guitar

Clothes of Tears

The Telstar Combo were from the island nation / renegade Chinese province Taiwan.

I have not been able to find out anything about the band, except that they were the backing band for a number of Taiwanese singers, most notably Hsieh Lei 謝雷.

After the initial posting, I found this bit of information about the label:

The record was put out by Haishan Records, the dominant force on the pop scene back then. Their roster included around 80% of the big stars of the 60s and 70s, but they got hit badly by financial troubles in the early 80s. Many of the employees jumped ship and started their own record companies. Haishan is still around, but it only puts out re-issues of the oldies.

Thanks to Mack at Far East Audio for getting this translated for me.

Catalog number SL-2081 on Hai Sahn Records of Taiwan. No release date listed.
