This is a solo album by Friederich Gulda, a famous Austrian composer/pianist, released in 1969. This is a reissue from Crystal Jazz in 1978. This is a solo work on acoustic piano, but don't underestimate it, it's amazing. As you can see from the title and the artwork on the sleeve, he creates super galactic space music with a single grand piano. The organic melody spun out as if stardust were falling is just too good to be true. It is hard to find a solo piano piece with such an imaginative and undulating scene description. This is the first Japanese release from Teichiku's Melting Sound series in 1974.A1: Theme from "Dropout"
