1st pressing/release.

There is also another orange label pressing, Afrika Bambaataa & Soulsonic Force Music By Planet Patrol - Planet Rock, which has "© ℗ Tommy Boy Music" printed on the labels instead of just "© Tommy Boy Music".
There is also a unofficial/bootleg knock-off orange label pressing, Afrika Bambaataa & Soulsonic Force Music By Planet Patrol - Planet Rock, which has glossier center labels, but does not have the mastering info that is both stamped and etched into the runouts on this version as well the aforementioned orange label variant.

1. Soul Sonic Force is listed as a writer only on track A1 on this pressing.
2. The actual BPM's clock at ~127.
3. Planet Patrol performs the music on this (the same 24 track tape was used to make both Planet Rock and Planet Patrol - Play At Your Own Risk). The "Music By" credit is NOT a written-by type credit but is instead a performer credit.

The most influential hip hop track of all time. I could go deep into history, but I'd rather take the time to organize more of my music collection.

Just to add, in this case, "Music by PLANET PATROL" simply means "All music by John Robie".

...why is this version stated a first pressing and not the version with the C and P? like the TB812 jazzy's sensation has also the C and P and why is the lack of SSF of side B credit a sign of an earlier version? can everybody confirm this note on this submission...? THX
