Apollo 100 was a short-lived British instrumental studio-based group that had a top 10 hit with the Johann Sebastian Bach-inspired single "Joy" in 1972. The recording of "Joy" as performed by Apollo 100 is a nearly note-for-note remake of the arrangement of "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" (but with modern pop music flourishes like percussion, electric guitar and bass) recorded by the British band Jigsaw on their 1970 debut album Letherslade Farm.

Apollo 100, as their predecessor The Tornadoes, are a fantastic and talented instrumental group. If only there were more like them. I don't know who has the original master tapes of Apollo 100. Maybe they don't even exist anymore. My vinyl album of "Joy" is on the Mega record label. Rhino got their copy from Janus Records. I wonder if Janus has the original masters of all of Apollo 100's recordings. I wish Rhino would get the rights to the Apollo 100 master tapes and re-release this collection with better mastered versions. Maybe, if we all write to Rhino Records, maybe we could get Rhino to do this for us.
