Bobby Orlando is a highly prolific music producer, songwriter, musician, and record label impresario. During the 80’s he produced, composed and performed on hundreds of music productions that he released under a myriad of record labels, including: “O” Records, Bobcat Records, Memo Records and others. He is one of the founding fathers of Hi-NRG dance music. Orlando is a multi-instrumentalist and the cowbell percussion lines and robotic sequencers heard on “She Has A Way”, his debut single, defines his trademark sound.
As a solo artist, Orlando scored hits with tracks ‘She Has a Way’, ‘How To Pick Up Girls’, and ‘I’m So Hot for You’. He also produced the early hit singles for numerous artists including Divine (Native Love), Pet Shop Boys (West End Girls) and The Flirts (Passion) amongst many others.
Bobby’s debut album, FREEDOM IN AN UNFREE WORLD was issued in 1983 and secured his place at the forefront of the HI-NRG movement. The album is extremely sought after but has been out of print for more than twenty years. Cherry Pop’s new edition features a remastered edition of the original album as well as five bonus tracks that include the original 12″ single remixes of his early hit singles.
Cherry Pop is proud to present the definitive expanded edition of FREEDOM IN AN UNFREE WORLD which is an essential addition to the collection of all Eighties Pop and Dance fans.
