Track name. Best Of Strange Cargo. Recorded between 1984 and 1987, Orbit's first Strange Cargo release is a dynamic album of quirky mood music, with the producer exploiting the full range of his synthesizer presets and evoking a quintessentially '80s style of Fourth World digitalia. Though they're all well produced, most of these tracks are suited more for use as musical beds on the Discovery Channel, and Via Caliente and Riding to Rio may be too bright and happy for fans of his later work.
