Actually you need to go to Giorgio Moroder for the first synthesized disco sound. Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" and Mr. Moroder's "Chase" from the Midnight Express sound track. both which were released in the late 70's.

On the label is reprinted 8:45. But real length of the tracks on the vinyl is 9 '.

The absolute pinnacle of Bobby Orlando's illustrious career.

Passion defined the sound of Hi-NRG, showcasing post-Disco before House & Techno captured the dancefloor.

Everything in this track is sublime. From the fat off-beat bassline to the proto-rave main riff (and of course the intensely catchy vocals) you are bombarded with pure ecstasy.

The bridge between Disco & House is here.

Due to the international licensing to a number of small labels, the labeling of the long versions of "Passion" is rather confusing. Up to now, I've found a regular long version at 6:40 and a shorter version of this mix at 5:02 on "O" Records OR 720 and HTO-01. The "Remix"/"Super Remix"/"Special R.E.M.I.X.E.D"/"Canadian Version" labeled long versions are always 9:03 minutes - I have never actually found a version at 8:45 on a 12" as is sometimes listed. There is a short version of the Remix on the Clever/Carrere 8170 12" at 3:54. This is edited from the long Remix and does not have any unique content. And then there is one more remix by Ben Liebrand released on the "Studio 57" double LP set on ARS and BMC clocking in at 7:09. This remix has quite a different feel due to a hi-hat like additional synthline. Up to now, I couldn't find a 12" playing this mix - rather weird for purely dance labels like ARS/BMC.

Does anybody have different versions (except the single mixes)?

This record is a must have & true it is one of the most influential dance records ever made. Miss Kitten & Felix Da Housecat sampled it for the main hook in silver screen shower scene. Thus kicking off the whole electroclash movement & kickstarting a whole new sound in post 90's dance music. However anyone who really wants to know where the synthesized disco sound Bobby O "invented" came from please check out the true originator Patrick Cowley. Stolen or borrowed it really is upto the listener. However check out menergy by Cowley which was produced in 1980 & you can hear the sound Bobby O used for most of his disco producing career. Sadly Cowley passed away but not before making some of the most important electronic records ever.

I have the same record. But with another label in the middle. it's not the same as all the ones shown here. It's the well-known red and pink Ramshorn label. Does anyone know if there's a difference with the other ones? Catalog number is the same, as well as the tracks. Cover of the 12" shows the Flirts, just like on the album that was released in the Netherlands. The single has the same cover.

Stumbled over this song @CBS's top 100 list for 2006. I had completely forgotten this awesome masterpiece. How could i forget this!? I remember listening to this on casette's, but I think I never catched the name of the song. Great build up with deep bassline and sensual vocals, a really dirty and sexy song. I can't see no reason why they shouldn't play this song nowadays. Perfect music that will never grow old.

This track is so classic. One of Bobby Orlando's best productions and as fresh today as it was in 1982, possibly even fresher on the dancefloor since so many of today's partgoers have not been properly introduced and yet are more prepared to appreciate Bobby's dynamic sound. Hunt this down if you want to get the sophisticated ladies on the floor.

A lovely long italo-meets-house track with a flowing deep bassline and sensual vocals. The disctorted acid-line throughout is used in Felix Da Housecat's Silver Screen Shower Scene. This track fits into a modern house / electro house set no problems!!

Felix Da Housecat 'used' this bassline and guitarriff for his release "Silver Screen, Shower Scene".
