FlinterFile: Apollo 100- Joy
The band Apollo 100 didn’t exist long, but they did exist long enough to make two albums and have a big hit.The man behind the band, Tom Parker, made fame as the maker of the arrangements for Don Fardon and the hit Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep (Middle Of The Road). In 1972 he formed the band Apollo 100 and with this band they released the song Joy, which was based on Jesus bleibet meine Freude, a composition by Johann Sebastian Bach. This was already ‘modernized’ by the band Jigsaw, but they didn’t have a hit with it. Apollo 100 would make number 2 in the US adult contemporary chart. Enjoy
