Check Your Head
New - LP - C1-94225
Sealed 2022 2LP Reissue. "Check Your Head Brought The Beastie Boys Crashing Back Into The Charts And Into Public Consciousness, But That Was Only Partially Due To The Album Itself -- Much Of Its Initial Success Was Due To The Cult Audience That Paul's Boutique Cultivated In The Years Since Its Initial Flop Release, A Group Of Fans Whose Minds Were So Thoroughly Blown By That Record, They Couldn't Wait To See What Came Next, And This Helped The Record Debut In The Top Ten Upon Its April 1992 Release. This Audience, Perhaps Somewhat Unsurprisingly, Was A Collegiate Gen-x Audience Raised On Licensed To Ill And Ready For The Beastie Boys To Guide Them Through College. As It Happened, The Beasties Had Repositioned Themselves As A Lo-fi, Alt-rock Groove Band. They Had Not Abandoned Rap, But It Was No Longer The Foundation Of Their Music, It Was Simply The Most Prominent In A Thick Pop-culture Gumbo Where Old School Rap Sat Comfortably With Soul-jazz, Hardcore Punk, White-trash Metal, Arena Rock, Bob Dylan, Bossa Nova, Spacy Pop, And Hard, Dirty Funk. What They Did Abandon Was The Psychedelic Samples Of Paul's Boutique, Turning Toward Primitive Grooves They Played Themselves, Augmented By Keyboardist Money Mark And Co-producer Mario Caldato, Jr.. This All Means That Music Was The Message And The Rhymes, Which Had Been Pushed Toward The Forefront On Both Licensed To Ill And Paul's Boutique, Have Been Considerably De-emphasized (Only Four Songs -- "Jimmy James," "Pass The Mic," "Finger Lickin' Good," And "So What'cha Want" -- Could Hold Their Own Lyrically Among Their Previous Work). This Is Not A Detriment, Because The Focus Is Not On The Words, It's On The Music, Mood, And Even The Newfound Neo-hippie Political Consciousness. And Check Your Head Is Certainly A Record That's Greater Than The Sum Of Its Parts -- Individually, Nearly All The Tracks Are Good (The Instrumentals Sound Good On Their Subsequent Soul-jazz Collection, The In Sound From Way Out), But It's The Context And Variety Of Styles That Give Check Your Head Its Identity. It's How The Old School Raps Give Way To Fuzz-toned Rockers, Furious Punk, And Cheerfully Gritty, Jazzy Jams. As Much As Paul's Boutique, This Is A Whirlwind Tour Through The Beasties' Pop-culture Obsessions, But Instead Of Spinning Into Technicolor Fantasies, It's Earth-bound D.i.y. That Makes It All Seem Equally Accessible -- Which Is A Big Reason Why It Turned Out To Be An Alt-rock Touchstone Of The '90s, Something That Both Set Trends And Predicted Them."

Hot Sauce Committee Part Two
New - LP - B0026990-01
Sealed, Latest Run Of The 2017 2LP 180gm Gatefold Reissue. "Once Adam Yauch Discovered He Had Cancer In 2009, The Beastie Boys Shelved Their Forthcoming The Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 1 And Its Companion Volume, Gradually Reviving And Revising The Project Once Yauch Went Into Remission. At This Point, They Scrapped Their Convoluted Plans To Release Concurrent Complementary Volumes Of THSC And Simply Went Forth With The Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2, Which Retained The Bulk Of The Track List From Pt 1. All This Hurly-burly Camouflages The Essential Truth Of The Hot Sauce Committee: That The Beasties Could Sit On An Album For Two Years To No Ill Effect To Their Reputation Or The Record’s Quality. This Doesn’t Suggest They’re Out Of Step So Much As They’re Out Of Time, Existing In A World Of Their Own Making, Beholden To No Other Standard But Their Own. Certainly, The Beasties Stitch Together Sounds And Rhymes From Their Past Throughout The Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2, Laying Down Grooves À La Check Your Head But Weaving Samples Through These Rhythms, Thickly Layering The Album With Analog Synths Out Of Hello Nasty, All The While Pledging Allegiance To Old-School Rap In Their Rhymes. Nothing Here Is Exactly Unexpected -- Even The Presence Of Santogold On “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” Isn’t New, It’s New Wave -- Yet The Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2 Feels Fresh Because There Is Such Kinetic Joy Propelling This Music. Last Time Around, The Beasties Weighed Themselves Down By Creating Retro-Tribute To N.Y.C., Taking Everything Just A Little Bit Too Seriously, But Here They’re Free Of Any Expectations And Are Back To Doing What They Do Best: Cracking Wise And Acting So Stupid They Camouflage How Kinetic, Inventive, And Rich Their Music Is. And, Make No Mistake, The Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2 Does Find The Beastie Boys At Their Best. Perhaps They’re No Longer Setting The Style, But It Takes Master Musicians To Continually Find New Wrinkles Within A Signature Sound, Which Is Precisely What The Beasties Do Here."

In Sound From Way Out!
Colored Vinyl - GR 013
Hard To Find, Sealed 1994 Limited Edition Colored Vinyl Issue. This Is 1978/5000. “Originally Released Through The Beastie Boys' French Fan Club, The In Sound From Way Out! Is A Collection Of The Group's Funky Instrumentals From Check Your Head And Ill Communication, With A Couple Of New Tracks Thrown In. The Beasties Have A Flair For Loose, Gritty Funk And Soul-Jazz, And The Stuttering, Greasy Keyboards Of Money Mark Give The Music An Extra Edge -- He Helps Make The Music Sound As Authentic As Anything From The Early '70s. Fans Of The Band's Dynamic Wordplay Might Find The In Sound From Way Out! A Disappointment, But Anyone Who Grooved On The Wildly Eclectic Fusions Of Check Your Head And Ill Communication Will Find The Album Endlessly Enjoyable.” - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG more

"Such Was The Power Of Licensed To Ill That Everybody, From Fans To Critics, Thought That Not Only Could The Beastie Boys Not Top The Record, But That They Were Destined To Be A One-shot Wonder. These Feelings Were Only Amplified By Their Messy, Litigious Departure From Def Jam And Their Flight From Their Beloved New York To Los Angeles, Since It Appeared That The Beasties Had Completely Lost The Plot. Many Critics In Fact Thought That Paul's Boutique Was A Muddled Mess Upon Its Summer Release In 1989, But That's The Nature Of The Record -- It's So Dense, It's Bewildering At First, Revealing Its Considerable Charms With Each Play. To Put It Mildly, It's A Considerable Change From The Hard Rock Of Licensed To Ill, Shifting To Layers Of Samples And Beats So Intertwined They Move Beyond Psychedelic; It's A Painting With Sound. Paul's Boutique Is A Record That Only Could Have Been Made In A Specific Time And Place. Like The Rolling Stones In 1972, The Beastie Boys Were In Exile And Pining For Their Home, So They Made A Love Letter To Downtown New York -- Which They Could Not Have Done Without The Dust Brothers, A Los Angeles-based Production Duo Who Helped Redefine What Sampling Could Be With This Record. Sadly, After Paul's Boutique Sampling On The Level Of What's Heard Here Would Disappear; Due To A Series Of Lawsuits, Most Notably Gilbert O'sullivan's Suit Against Biz Markie, The Entire Enterprise Too Cost-prohibitive And Risky To Perform On Such A Grand Scale. Which Is Really A Shame, Because If Ever A Record Could Be Used As Incontrovertible Proof That Sampling Is Its Own Art Form, It's Paul's Boutique. Snatches Of Familiar Music Are Scattered Throughout The Record -- Anything From Curtis Mayfield's "Superfly" And Sly Stone's "Loose Booty" To Loggins & Messina's "Your Mama Don't Dance" And The Ramones' "Suzy Is A Headbanger" -- But Never Once Are They Presented In Lazy, Predictable Ways. The Dust Brothers And Beasties Weave A Crazy-quilt Of Samples, Beats, Loops, And Tricks, Which Creates A Hyper-surreal Alternate Reality -- A Romanticized, Funhouse Reflection Of New York Where All Pop Music And Culture Exist On The Same Strata, Feeding Off Each Other, Mocking Each Other, Evolving Into A Wholly Unique Record, Unlike Anything That Came Before Or After. It Very Well Could Be That Its Density Is What Alienated Listeners And Critics At The Time; There Is So Much Information In The Music And Words That It Can Seem Impenetrable At First, But Upon Repeated Spins It Opens Up Slowly, Assuredly, Revealing More Every Listen. Musically, Few Hip-hop Records Have Ever Been So Rich; It's Not Just The Recontextulations Of Familiar Music Via Samples, It's The Flow Of Each Song And The Album As A Whole, Culminating In The Widescreen Suite That Closes The Record. Lyrically, The Beasties Have Never Been Better -- Not Just Because Their Jokes Are Razor-sharp, But Because They Construct Full-bodied Narratives And Evocative Portraits Of Characters And Places. Few Pop Records Offer This Much To Savor, And If Paul's Boutique Only Made A Modest Impact Upon Its Initial Release, Over Time Its Influence Could Be Heard Through Pop And Rap, Yet No Matter How Its Influence Was Felt, It Stands Alone As A Record Of Stunning Vision, Maturity, And Accomplishment. Plus, It's A Hell Of A Lot Of Fun, No Matter How Many Times You've Heard It.Such Was The Power Of Licensed To Ill That Everybody, From Fans To Critics, Thought That Not Only Could The Beastie Boys Not Top The Record, But That They Were Destined To Be A One-shot Wonder.

Sounds Of Science
New - LP - 22940
Sealed 2000 4LP Box Set Anthology Limited To 6000 Copies. “At The Close Of The '90s, The Beastie Boys Had Only Released Five Albums, Which May Not Seem Like Enough Music To Provide The Foundation For A 4LP Retrospective. But Between 1981 And 1999, They Released Countless B-Sides, Non-LP Singles, And EPs, Resulting In A Sprawling Discography Ripe For A Compilation. So, In 1999, The Beasties Released The Two-Disc Compilation The Sounds Of Science, Which Covers Every Incarnation Of The Band From Pollywog Stew To Hello Nasty. Inevitably, Some Well-Known Songs Are Missing -- Only Three Cuts From Licensed To Ill Are Here, And Their Breakthrough Single "Rock Hard" Had To Be Pulled When AC/DC Refused Permission For A Sample. Ultimately, That Doesn't Matter, Since The Set Captures The Spirit Of The Beasties So Well. Usually, Compilations That Don't Follow Chronological Order Are A Little Muddled, But The Sounds Of Science Benefits From Its Jumbled Sequencing, Since It Emphasizes The Band's Astonishing Musical Reach And Consistency. After All, Every Album Since Paul's Boutique Has Followed A Similarly Unpredictable Pattern, As The Group Moved From Hip-Hop To Punk To Funk To Jazz. What's Remarkable About The Sounds Of Science Is That It Has All The Obvious Suspects, But Since They're Rubbing Singles With Album Tracks And B-Sides Like "Skills To Pay The Bills," Two Outtakes From The Abandoned Country Album, Alternate Versions Of "Jimmy James" And "Three MC's And One DJ," Fatboy Slim's Brilliant Remix Of "Body Movin'," Goofs Like The Biz Markie-Sung Cover Of "Benny And The Jets," And The Excellent New Single "Alive," It All Sounds Fresh. There's Much More Than Hits Here, But The Sounds Of Science Achieves Something Most Anthologies Don't: It Summarizes The Attitude And Spirit Of The Band, While Offering Some New Revelations Even For Dedicated Fans.” - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG more
