Kenwood Album Discography
by David Edwards and Mike Callahan
Last update: January 1, 2008

The Kenwood albums were reissues of the Apollo albums. Cover graphics were identical except for the Kenwood number and logo replacing the corresponding Apollo number and logo. The first Kenwood albums and singles appeared in 1964, and were reissues offered from Apollo Records. Later, in the 1970s, Kenwood albums were also reissued by Nashboro Records, using the purple Nashboro label.
