Apollo – Atmospheres & Soundtracks

LP (Item 379140) EG, 1983 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


A later ambient LP from Eno, with help from his brother pianist Roger Eno, and Daniel Lanois, with whom he'd collaborate a fair bit in the later part of his career. The music was originally composed to accompany a documentary film about the Apollo space flights, and like the best ambient Eno work, is engaging but can easily fall into the background, with lush, quasi-electronic textures. With the tracks "Under Stars", "The Secret Place", "Matta", "Signals", "An Ending (Ascent)", "Under Stars II", "Drift", "Silver Morning", "Deep Blue Day", "Weightless", "Always Returning" and "Stars".

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

The second album by this hip funky rock combo – with a flanged out 70s groove that reminds us a bit of Average White Band, a bit of Hot Chocolate (the British group).

Pretty heavy duty rock from this group that featured drummer Cozy Powell.
