I LOVE BOBBY 'O' - Various Artists (Album) 80's hi-nrg classics

Bobby Orlando is a highly prolific music producer, songwriter, musician and record label impresario. During the 1980s he produced, composed and played on hundreds of music productions that he released under a myriad of record labels, including: "O" Records, Bobcat Records, Memo Records, Telefon Records, MenoVision Records, Beach Records, Plastic Records, Eurobeat Records, Obscure Records, Beat Box Records, Riovista Records, Intelligent Records, Basic Records, Knowledge Records and others.

Orlando is credited as one of the founding fathers of Hi-NRG pop-dance music.
His productions are easily identifiable by their dense synthesizers, rolling bass lines, and resounding percussion.
Orlando tracks showcase him playing multiple instruments including keyboards, guitars, drums, percussion and saxophone. The ringing cowbell percussion lines and robotic sequencers heard in "She Has A Way", "The Best Part Of Breakin' Up," "Desire," and "Native Love (Step By Step)" define the electrifying sound he pioneered.
In the late '80s, at the peak of his success, the "one-man-band" suddenly and inexplicably halted his extensive production output.
Orlando is still active in the dance music world. His most recent production is the 2005 release "Outside the Inside," which contains the internet radio chart topping hit Sorrow.
