Paul's Boutique (quad-fold pressing)

LP (Item 8359) Capitol, 1989 — Condition: Sealed
Gatefold
Original quad-fold copy of the Beastie's second LP, and their first one for Capitol. Like a great deal of hip hop from the late 80s/early 90s era, the production on this one is nothing short of watershed, pure Dust Brothers butter, super dense and super funky like heavy clouds of smoke from the bong! And besides it seems like there's almost no reason to mention the fab and now classic cover package, with a wrap around image from Ludlow and Rivington that's like a tribute from the Beasties to their pre-Cali transplant locale! 15 seminal tracks in all, including "Hey Ladies", "Shake Your Rump", "High Plains Drifter", "The Sound Of Science", "Looking Down The Barrel Of A Gun", "B-Boy Bouillabaisse" and "Shadrach".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Capitol 75th Anniversary pressing on 180 gram vinyl in the quad-fold cover. Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
