"Considered one of the most choice gems of the electro movement, Planet Patrol's 1983 debut release is back in effect. Their first 12" was pulled together from material that did not get included in Afrika Bambaataa's break dance national anthem, 'Planet Rock'. After the success of the resulting single, 'Play At Your Own Risk', Tommy Silverman paired the group with Arthur Baker to work up this full length classic. The group which consisted of Rodney Butler, Melvin B Franklin, Herbert J. Jackson, Michael Anthony Jones & Joseph Lites may have only turned out one complete long player, but fortunately for us it's a benchmark in the electro sub-genre. Anchored by 'Play At Your Own Risk (Remix)' this album features more of what Electro fans crave; heavy 808s and more analog synths than you could possible fit into one room not to mention an electric sitar on the track 'It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference.' Traffic Entertainment Group is proud to announce the re-release of the seminal hip-hop/electro classic. Fully licensed and remastered from the original analog source material, Planet Patrol's self-titled effort sounds better than ever and comes packed in a handsome digipak to keep collectors smiling."
