WATERFRONT HOME - NEW BREED OF MERMAID (CD ALBUM) 1984 Bobby Orlando Hi-NRG disco
What a classic now very hard to find released in 1983 on bobcat label ..."hulkamania" is definively a real underground ORLANDO classic...also include "Take a chance on me"...great sellers!
Bobby Orlando was a prolific producer, releasing all kinds of music under different band names, The Flirts being his most famous imprint, and his often displayed flashes of wacky brilliance. This is a great CD, mixing pop, dance, and even 80s new wave into a fun, cheesily kitcsh blend. Listen without guilt. Standouts include "Dancing In Heaven", a pop ditty about a man mourning the death of his two children (!) Viva Brooklyn!
