History of Walteria Records
Walteria Records began as a very small label in a basement apartment in St. Louis Missouri on July 1, 1984 as Blue Boat Records producing music with a cassette recorder, and going to a studio to record music. The studio was known as Preimer Film and Recording in St. Louis. One year later, Walt decided to record a first release, an EP 45 pictured here.
The single, "All I Do (Is Daydream)" was originally going to be backed by a single
"How Will I Know" but the B side was over 6 minutes so the decision was to fill the record with four songs instead of two. "Red Sun" was added to the A side as the single helped Walt win a talent contest at a St. Louis nightclub. "Woah Yeah Tomorrow" written in 1977 was a known single Walt had performed at a variety show at his High School in 1983 and was added to the B Side as was, "My Tears Are Falling" a brand new single was also put on the B side of the record. Only 500 copies were pressed and issued, and long since lost until recently, when we obtained a copy from an unlikely source. The record was played a lot at a tavern formerly known as "The Billie Goat Hill Saloon" the building itself still exists
but the name has changed.
