Hi-NRG Classics
06/21/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I feel personally that Volume 2 was the best, only because the songs played out better then Volume One does. Here's the song by song play : 01) Roni Griffith - "Desire" (1981) : 12 Inch version here, Hi-NRG/Eurodisco classic, we love you Roni!!!!! (10/10)02) The Flirts - "Passion" (1982) : EP version (5 minute version) here, gotta love the throbbing bass line on this one. The 12 Inch can be found on the "The Definitive "O" Records 12" Collection". (10/10)03) Divine - "Native Love" (Remix) : This is not the original 1981 12 Inch Version, this one has more of a breakdance feel too it. The 12 Inch can be found on "The Definitive "O" Records 12" Collection". (8/10)04) Barbie & The Kens - "Just A Gigolo" (1982) : Single Version, total "Private Idaho" rip off song, this is the odd one of the disc, too New Wave. The 12 Inch can be found on "The Definitive "O" Records 12" Collection". (8/10)05) Bobby O' - "I'm So Hot For You" (1982) : 45 Version, the 12 Inch version is on the Best Of Bobby O'. (10/10)06) Free Enterprise - "Make It On My Own" (1982) : 45 Version, Another odd one, trying to rip off R&B/Urban music and some flat out embarrassing rapping on this one. "Hello sweet momma, i'm going through a trama, how's bout' a little ramma?", Bobby what were you thinking? (00/10)07) Bobby O' & Claudja Barry - "Whisper To A Scream" : 12 Inch Version here, classic classic classic! We love you Claudja!!!!! The EP version is on the Best Of Bobby O'. (10/10)08) The Flirts - "Danger" - 12 Inch version here, but not the original, this version sounds more like a demo version. (5/10)09) Oh Romeo - "These Memories" (1983) : 12 Inch Version, classic Hi-NRG. (10/10)10) Divine - "Love Reaction" (1983) : 45 Version, total "Blue Monday" rip-off and not much singing from the Misssssssss Divine, but i can't help it, I love it! The 12 Inch can be found on "The Best Of Divine-Native Love". (9/10)11) Gomez Presley - "The Letter" (1982) : 45 Version, the same guy who sang "Make It On My Own", sings this one but does a great job on this one, the bassline is bangin' on this one. Who would of thought Elvis gone Hi-NRG? The 12 Inch can be found on "The Definitive "O" Records 12" Collection". (10/10)12) Hotline - "Ready Or Not" (1986) : 45 Version, Total "Two Of Hearts" by Stacy Q rip off here. (00/10)13) Band Of South - "Sensitive" : 45 Version, campy lyrics, campy song period, classic! (10/10)14) The Flirts - "You & Me" (1987) : 12 Inch Version, the end was near for "O" Records, Bobby O' was using the Stock, Aitken & Waterman sound which was the in-thing through out the late 80's and early 90's. In other words, Hi-NRG/Freestyle/and other 80's Disco became House Music. (9/10)"The Definitive "O" Records 12" Collection" is a 2 CD set with 28 tracks from the "O" Records vault."
ANOTHER JAMMIN BOBBY
MC | 01/24/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I FELT OBLIGATED TO PURCHASE THIS CD BECAUSE I AM A BIG BOBBY "O" FAN , AND BECAUSE I JUST LOVE HI-NRG MUSIC. WHEN I FINALLY GOT THIS CD I WAS VERY EXCITED THAT THIS CD INCLUDED THE ORIGINAL EXTENDED VERSIONS FOR THE ALL THE TRACKS. THIS CD IS PACKED WITH CLASSIC 80'S HI-NRG. THIS IS ANOTHER CD THAT MUST BE PURCHASED TO COMPLETE THE BOBBY "O" COLLECTION."
Volume 2 Is Better, But This Ain't Bad
Michael E. Smith | Providence, RI/Los Angeles, CA | 04/08/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Volume 2 of this collection is much better. I'm only a fan of seven songs on this CD. All the songs are standard Bobby Orlando and a lot of fun, but "The Best of Bobby O" would be a better choice.I've been loving "Sensitive" for almost 20 years now and I'm very please to have it along with "Desire", "Passion", "Native Love" (even though it has a free style beat), "I'm So Hot For You", "Danger", and "Love Reaction" in my collection. If you recognize the all the songs on this CD I say, go for it! But if you only recognize the club hits then look for them on other collections."
