It's got tight Motown style vocalists with different ranges but it's not a soul classic. Play at your own risk is not just another electro funk record. Released on Tommy Boy in 1982 produced and arranged by Arthur Baker & Francois Kervockian, it is a quintessential New York track from that golden age of early Hip Hop.
It took Afrika Bambaataa's Planet Rock's originality (and out takes) and delivered a polished hybrid.
Still has a power and rawness even now and reminds me of that exciting time.
