Bobby Orlando is considered to be the king of the Hi-NRG style by fans. Whilst many of his productions are a little on the crude side, his prolific output of 12" singles during the early to mid 80s kept dance floors alive with his ultra-energtic music, scoring international hits with songs recorded by Divine and the girl group The Flirts. Many of the releases are sung by a small group of session singers, who appear in various guises and groups.
He released his productions on a number of his self owned independent labels, such as Eurobeat, Memo, Telephon, "O" Records and Bobcat, but they were pressed in very limited numbers, making them highly sought after by collectors, and therefore expensive on the second hand market. A few compilations have been released on CD. As his production output was quite extensive I have only listed my favorite Bobby "O" tracks, rather than attempt a comprehensive discography.
Most of the original US 12"s came without picture sleeves, in plain card sleeves or record company sleeves. The picture sleeves posted in this blog have come from the Continental European versions.
