APOLLO

I can only presuume that these two labels are from the same company - only because they both use the word ‘Apollo'. Looking at just the green label, it could be presumed that it was made  in Greece. However, the purple label is clearly indicated as made in the USA by Apollo Music Co, of New York.  

Rust [R] lists the detail that there were two Apollo labels in the USA, one with  ‘with the Greek god's features enclosed in an oval surmounting the brand name in capitals...'. Rust dioes not indicate that the Apollo label produced Greek music.
