Rarity Scale – Very Rare
Here we have a very nice copy of the Finnish progressive outfit “Apollo”.
The album does not pop up very often.
The disc of this copy is in near perfect condition. The playback is awesome with only some slight background crackle at hte beginning and run-out of both sides. The vinyl shows some visual minor marks, but all of them are inaudible. The playback of the music is lovely.
Both labels looks like they are new. No spindle traces, no writing and no age wear! Amazing! Overall we grade the disc EX+.
The sleeve of this album is always the problem. Most copies are totally destroyed. This copy is still in quite nice condition. OK, it is not perfect, but still much better compared to most copies around.
The reason this covers are so fragile is the poor printing quality and used colours. The fade brown colour always appears on the sleeve of this album.
The front of the cover is nice but has some age wear. The back of the cover has also some age wear. The spine is lovely and die-cut opening is also lovely. The inside of the unlaminated gatefold sleeve is near perfect. We grade the sleeve EX-.
Please take a very good look at the photos to get a good impression!

A large selection of rare vinyl records from the golden era.
Apollo is a progressive rock outfit from Finland and released only one album. The band was formed in 1969 and allready disbanded in 1970 before their first album was released. In the end the band only excisted for less than a year.
The band had four members, Edward Vesala, Harri Saksala, Heimo Holopainen and Eero Lupari.
The album was released on the tiny Finnish label “Blue Master” and was recorded in “Finnvoxin Studio” in Helsinki (Finland).
The music on this album can be placed in the genre of progressive rock. No doubt about that. The musicianship is really good. If you like progressive rock from Northern Europe, do not hesitate, and add this obscure rarity to your progressive rock collection. You won’t regret it;).
