Notes

Original 1983 Pressing, Limited to 500, Considered to be one of the Holy Grail of rap records due to custom artwork by Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The 1983 pressing has TT-001-A-E-1 in runout for side 1 and TT-001-B-E-1 in runout for side 2 and plays at 45rpm
The 1983 pressing also has one ring under the centre label towards the outer edge of the label
(See photo's of this release)

This undated repress Rammellzee vs. K-Rob - Beat Bop plays at 45rpm but only has TT001 A / TT001 B in the runout groove.

I used to hate this track back in the day because it was so slow compared to the electro of the time. Time has made me see the error of my ways though and I've grown to love it.
