“Paul’s Boutique is a landmark in the art of sampling... a harbinger of the pop-culture obsessions and referential touchstones that would come to define the ensuing decades' postmodern identity” – Pitchfork

 

Los Angeles, CA – July 19, 2019 – July 25th marks the 30th anniversary of the Beastie Boys’ 1989 landmark second album Paul’s Boutique. To celebrate, 21 rare remixes and B-sides will be released digitally for the first time over the course of a month-long celebration. The EPs An Exciting Evening At Home With Shadrach, Meshach And Abednego and the Love American Style EP will be released today, July 19th. Remixes of the singles “Hey Ladies” and “Shadrach” are available on July 26th and remix versions of “Shake Your Rump” and “Looking Down The Barrel Of A Gun” will be released on August 2nd.

Recorded in Los Angeles with a sample-based Dust Brothers production that would be impossible in today’s legal/financial world, Paul’s Boutique, marked a giant creative leap forward for Adrock, Mike D and MCA. They finally had the freedom to write and record without outside input or interference, a creative path that would continue to grow and flourish throughout their career. Ranking high on lists including Pitchfork’s “Top 100 Albums of the 1980s,” Time Magazine’s “100 Greatest Albums of All TIME” and Rolling Stone’s “Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time,” Paul’s Boutique went on to sell over 2 million albums. 

While it took a few years longer than its predecessor to sell multiple millions, Paul’s Boutique is now considered an essential, genre-redefining hip-hop classic.
