(C45s)Joy/ Exercise in A Minor by Apollo 100

Label: Mega 0050 Year: 1972
Factory sleeve included
Condition: M- $7.50
Joy/ Exercise in A MinorIn the early 1970s, strange rock tunes flourished in a way they never did before or since. (Well, maybe the late 1950s could give the early 1970s a run for their money.) Think about it. Here are some of the weird recordings that hit the U.S. Top 10 during 1970-74:
  • "Hocus Pocus", Focus (#9, Jan. 1973)
  • "How Do You Do", Mouth & McNeal (#8p, Apr. 1972)
  • "Hooked On A Feeling", Blue Swede (#1p, Feb. 1974)
  • "Desiderata", Les Crane (#8p, Oct. 1971)
  • "Jungle Fever", Chakachas (#8p, Jan. 1972)
  • "Chick-A-Boom", Daddy Dewdrop (#9p in Mar. 1971)
  • "Gimme Dat Ding", Pipkins (#9p in May 1970)
  • "Troglodyte (Cave Man)", Jimmy Castor Bunch (#6p in May 1972)
  • "My Ding-A-Ling", Chuck Berry (#1p in Aug. 1972)

And there were many more that were Top 40 but not Top 10!

This rock arrangement, by U.K. studio group Apollo 100, of Johann Sebastian Bach's famous ditty, "Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring," definitely falls in the category of weird. But good weird. :-)

Note: This copy comes in a vintage Mega Records factory sleeve. The labels are reversed on this copy; they're near-mint, but on the wrong sides... that's what the EX grade means, in this case.
