I've been relying on guest material of late, which is a fine thing (means people WANT to contribute, also
means LESS WORK for me), but, as you know I still on occasion like to drag out a mega-post kind of thing, just to amaze you all with my talents.....I have a BUNCH of Beastie Boys stuff here, and I gonna TRY to get it all in one post, if I can it will be LOADED, it'll look like a Jon S post!
From the one and only New York City, ca. 1980, came The Beastie Boys, aka vocalist/drummer Mike D, vocalist/bassist Adam "MCA" Yauch, and Adam "Ad-Rock" Horowitz on guitar/vocals.....really, in 1980.....how many LEGIT, CAUCASIAN hip hop groups were around? I might give you House of Pain as well, if the timeing/era lines up, but the Beastie Boys were TRUE originals, advocating, as they did, fun stuff like smoking crack, PCP, and lots of other vile stuff sure to scare your grandmother away.
And it is here that out story begins.....originally a punk band, the Boys cashed in (smartly) on the then-current hip hop trends, and took it to the bank. "Licensed To Ill" (original title: "Don't Be a Faggot") is a classic of the era, TRUST ME sounds like nothing else released at the time.....the samples overload, the attitude, the WHITENESS....it was ALL new then, and this is a classic album. "Rhymin' and Stealin'", the notorious "Fight For Your Right to Party", as well as classics "She's Crafty" and "No Sleep Til Brooklyn"
Album #3, and, to me, the last of the classics, is "Check Yer Head", on which the lads return toplaying their own instruments, I do enjoy the results, in particular the dope-ass single "So What You Want?"......another must have album.
After that, myself and the Beasties part ways a bit, I do have a ton more material you can check, but, to me, these three discs are the ultimate. The remaining studio discs are here, it is up to your individual tastes how far you venture into this......we have "Ill Communication" from 1994, I thought myself that the novelty was wearing off even now, 1998's "Hello Nasty, 2004's "To the Five Boroughs", which is something of a comeback, a cool trib to NYC, 2007's "The Mix Up" is sort of a strange collection of instrumental versions of some of thier stuff, and thier final album "Hot Sauce Committee Part Two" was recorded and released during/after the cancer infliction of Adam "MCA", who passed away a few years back......as of now only "part 2" has been released.
There is PLENTY more here though if you are a Beasties fan......for one thing, "Check Your Head", "Ill Communication", and "Hello Nasty" all come with bonus discs, which should be a huge thing for Beasties-fanatics.....I also have a slew of compilation albums..."Hip Hop Sampler"(1994) is EXACTLY that......."Some Old Bullshit" is also titled accurately, flashing back to the punk days.....worthwhile for completists/fanatics for sure. "Tour Shot" dishes out some live stuff, the two-disc "Anthology-The Sounds of Science", is a career retrospective that may interest dabblers. "Some New Shit" is another effort to give you some live works, and "Solid Gold Hits" is a mishmash that I'd think most would likely avoid.
NOW believe it or not, I have an enormous slew of their EP's/singles as well....why? well, you never know,
but likely I downloaded the whole thing off the Bay a while back........they are packaged as I have them, I thought of bunching them up on a few big discs, but who am I?......
LOTTA STUFF HERE! work your way through as need be, LONG track list ahead, but pick and choose carefully and you can have damn near EVERYTHING you'll EVER need from the Beastie Boys.......let me know how ya like this one, it's been a while since Ive done one of these, I hope it is popular!
