Vanguard Apostolic was a short-lived subsidiary of Vanguard Records. They issued five singles during 1969, none of which were stereo. Their biggest hits were "Witchi Tai To" by Everything Is Everything and "Love Is Just A Four-Letter Word" by Joan Baez. They used the Vanguard catalog numbering sequence.
