✨✧ Beastie BoysAglio E Olio (with bonus tracks) (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Grand Royal, 1995. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Be warned – this might not be the Beastie Boys you know and love, because this special set has the trio returning to their punk rock roots – getting some help from Awol, and blasting through tracks that are as loud and fast as the work on their early Polly Wog Stew EP! In fact, the group are so fast here that they blast through the songs very quickly – the record is just a quarter of an hour in length – yet given that they could just have kept doing their same hitmaking thing at the time, it's great to hear them still be able to operate in a hardcore mode! Titles include "Square Wave In Unison", "Brand New", "Deal With It", "Believe Me", and "Nervous Assistant". Again, this is not hip hop – it's punk rock! Includes bonus tracks – "Light My Fire" and "Soba Violence". LP, Vinyl record album

Beastie BoysCooky Puss ... 12-inch
Ratcage, 1983. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $79.99
The first-ever Beastie Boys hip hop effort – a really great single done after their early punk material, and already a great showcase for their strong sense of humor! The gimmick here is great – the trio call up a number of Carvel Ice Cream stores, and ask to speak to various ice cream cakes – and the responses of the store staffers on the phone becomes most of the text of the song – over raw early hip hop breaks and beats! 4 tracks "Cooky Puss", "Bonus Batter", "Beastie Revolution" and "Cooky Puss (censored version)". 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Original pressing with MPO etch. Cover has a small rip on one corner and some light wear, but looks nice overall.)

✨✧ Beastie BoysLicensed To Ill ... CD
Def Jam, 1986. Used ... $3.99
The game changing Def Jam classic – and possibly the greatest album by the Beastie Boys – even though they'd grow up a whole lot after this! Profane party anthems galore, and the Beasties would distance themselves from much of the attitude of this album, making their career arc from stoopid (as opposed to stupid) to thoughtful and playful innovators one of the more interesting artistic evolutions of their generation for sure. With all the killer cuts: "Rhymin & Stealin", "The New Style", "Girls", "Fight For Your Right To Party", "No Sleep Til Brooklyn", "Paul Revere", "Hold It Now Hit It", "She's Crafty", and more. CD

✨✧ Beastie BoysMix Up ... CD
Capitol, 2007. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky and psych-rock-soul instrumentals from the Beastie Boys – essentially working as a quintet for much of the set – with Money Mark on Rhodes and Farfisa, and Alfredo Ortiz on percussion! The Beasties manage to blend 70s soul, jazz, Latin and sound library style grooves with a catchy aplomb on the best tracks – with Mike D on drums, Ad Rock on guitar, and Yauch on the bass. The Beasties still have enough cache in the pop spectrum to do whatever the heck they want – something that's very hardly accomplished in the 2007 major label environment – and this record stands up pretty well against much of what you'll find in the deep funk underground. Titles include "B For My Name", "14th Street Break", "Suco De Tangerina", "Gala Event", "Electric Worm", "Freaky Hijacki", "Off The Grid", "The Rat Cage", "The Melee", "Dramastically Different", "The Cousin Of Death", and "The Kangaroo Rat".

✨✧ Beastie BoysBeastie Boys Music ... LP
Capitol, 1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A career-spanning set of work from the Beastie Boys – one that features tracks from both their Def Jam and Capitol/Grand Royal years – in a way that really shows the continuing evolution of their sound! The tracklist is great – classics from every generation, and the kind of cuts that maybe hold up more strongly than some of their others as the years go by – a 20-track testament to the genius and wit that set them apart from the pack! Titles include "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win", "Fight For Your Right", "Ch Check It Out", "Intergalactic", "Pass The Mic", "Shadrach", "Hold It Now Hit It", "Root Down", "Body Movin", "Sabotage", "Brass Monkey", "Get It Together", "Jimmy James", "Hey Ladies", "No Sleep Til Brooklyn", "So What'Cha Want", "Shake Your Rump", "Paul Revere", "Sure Shot", and "Make Some Noise".

✨✧ Beastie BoysRoot Down EP (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Grand Royal/Capitol, 1995. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The funky Root Down EP by the Beastie Boys – riding high on a mid 90s creative peak! Root Down featuring a trio of versions of the title track and Ill Communication album standout, based on the Jimmy Smith's classic of the same name – and in hindsight, you really have to hand it to the Beasties, not only sampling and celebrating classic early 70s jazz funk, but for their earnest wish to introduce Jimmy Smith to the pop culture kids of the 90s – including a killer remix by the mighty Prince Paul. Also includes some live recordings from the time of classic Beasties tracks like"Time For Livin", "The Maestro", "Somethin's Got To Give", Time To Get Ill", thier punky "Heart Attack Man", "Sabrosa" and "Flute Loop". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Beastie BoysSome Old Bullsh!t (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Grand Royal, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Think the Beastie Boys went straight into hip hop? No – back at the start, they were three guys with plenty of energy who dabbled in a number of modes that were brewing big in the New York scene of their youth – including punk rock and reggae, both of which are featured here along with early hip hop experiments! The set begins with their searing "Egg Raid On Mojo" – the moves through "Beastie Boys", "Transit Cop", "Jimi", "Holy Snappers, "Riot Fight", "Beastie Rvolution", and "Michelle's Farm". But maybe best of all, the album includes the incredible Cooky Puss EP – which features the original "Cooky Puss" song that has the group calling up Carvel Ice Cream, and harassing the staff by asking to talk to an ice cream cake!

✨✧ Beastie BoysTo The 5 Boroughs (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Capitol, 2004. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A masterful later album by the Beastie Boys – who always preferred to put out a great record every five or six years, than a sub par album every 2 or 3! All these years after Paul's Boutique, when the world of difficult, expensive sample clearance could've kill the layers of pop pastiche sound bites that made P's B such a brilliant statement, the soul and funk samples are still piled on in abundance on this one (albeit with a more electro studio built backdrop), as are the block rockin' party rhymes – even if the tone is serious and strident in spots. There are no attempts at live funky jazz or punk rock this time – this may be the Beasties' most classifiable hip hop album in decades. Tracks include the great throwback single "Ch-Check It Out", "Right Right Now Now", "3 The Hard Way", "It Takes Time To Build", "Rhyme The Rhyme Well", "Hey F**k You", "Triple Trouble", "Oh Word?", "That's It That's All", "All Lifestyles", "Shazam!", "An Open Letter To NYC" and more.

✨✧ Beastie BoysCheck Your Head ... CD
Grand Royal/Capitol, 1993. Used ... Out Of Stock
If Paul's Boutique was the Beasties heavily mind-blown Dust Brothers dusted psychedelic hip hop Sgt Peppers, then Check Your Head is their down and dirty back to basics raw funk run at something like Never Mind The Bollocks. Their first outing without the guidance of an outside producer, though the trio did bring in ringers like Money Mark and Mario Caldato Junior, this set's a ride into a whole other mindset, still fueled by sunny So Cal vibes and the Beasties own take on rhyme science. It's hard to imagine an album that would produce so many anthems for true heads and the Lollapalooza crowd alike, but this is it. Includes "Jimmy James", "Pass The Mic", "Gratitude", "Finger Lickin' Good", "So Whatcha Want", "Time For Livin'", "Something's Got To Give", "Groove Holmes" and "Professor Booty". CD
(Columbia House pressing.)

Bruno MacDonaldGreatest Albums You'll Never Hear – Unreleased Records By The World's Greatest Musicians (hardcover) ... Book
Aurum (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 28.00
A really cool look at albums that never happened – planned projects that were almost produced, but which fell apart at some point in the creative process – leading to a surprisingly large legacy of lost albums by some of rock music's biggest stars! Sure, everyone knows a few of these – like The Beach Boys' Smile – but this book opens the door to lots lots more – including projects by The Kinks, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Buffalo Springfield, Madonna, The Sex Pistols, Beastie Boys, and many more. Best of all, the book presents the albums almost as if they actually existed – in short sections within larger chapters that each feature an imagined cover, projected release dates, and a short section that tells the story of the record – which often features a "what happened next" sidebar to show where the creative process landed. The great presentation really helps illuminate the material – and the book is 256 pages, in color throughout. Book

✨✧ Eugene McDanielsHeadless Heroes Of The Apocalypse (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99
A monster album that's gone onto influence a generation – but which was barely recognized at the time! Singer Eugene McDaniels had scored big with some pop hits in the 60s under the name Gene McDaniels – but here, he steps out in a righteous batch of offbeat funk tunes – filled with politics, offbeat rhythms, and some very weird instrumentation. The whole thing's awash in moody, jazzy changes – of the style that showed up often in samples by Tribe Called Quest, Beastie Boys, and other artists who drew keen inspiration from this record. Titles include the massive "Jagger the Dagger" – plus "The Lord Is Back", "Lovin Man", "Headless Heroes", "Freedom Death Dance", and "Supermarket Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Run-DMCRaising Hell ... LP
Profile, 1986. Very Good+ ... $44.99
The massive third album from Run DMC – made at the top of their game – an pivotal effort that brought them to peak popularity and helped break hip hop in a huge way in the pop culture landscape! Part of the album's strength is its guitar-heavy sound on some of the grooves – produced by Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons with a classic early Def Jam vibe, in the same manner that helped the Beastie Boys get their records in the hands of folks who'd never buy hip hop otherwise! That sound comes to culmination on the album's hit collaboration with Aerosmith on a remake of "Walk This Way", resulting in the commercial breakthrough, but the real triumph here is the increased complexity in both the lyricism, and the way Jam Master Jay serves up their beats – which makes for a stone classic all the way through, on tracks that include "Peter Piper", "It's Tricky", "My Adidas", "Proud To Be Black", "You Be Illin'", and more.

VariousKrush Groove ... LP
Warner, 1985. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Not quite the Wild Style soundtrack, but still an early hip hop cinema classic – thanks to work from some of the bigger acts of the time! The movie's from a second generation of rap filmmaking – more narrative, less documentary – but over the course of years, the whole thing's come to stand as a great document of this moment in music – and in super-fresh style as well! Hip Hop tracks include "She's On It" by Beastie Boys, "I Can't Live Without My Radio" by LL Cool J, "If I Ruled The World" by Kurtis Blow, "All You Can Eat" by Fat Boys, and "Krush Groovin" by the Krush Groove All-Stars – which features Run-DMC, Fat Boys, Kurtis Blow, and Sheila E! Soul titles include "Krush Groove" by Chaka Khan, Love Triangle" by Gap Band, and "Tender Love" by Force MDs – and Debbie Harry shows her street soul chops on "Feel The Spin". LP, Vinyl record album

Smithsonian Folkways, Late 70s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 9CDs ... $120.99 159.98
A huge dip into the history of hip hop – in a set that's something of a groundbreaking effort from the folks at the Smithsonian! If we're honest, we'll tell you that we're old enough to remember a time when folks thought that hip hop was just a fad – when it was a musical style that would disappear in just a few short years. But now, all these many decades later, the form has had such an impact on American culture that the Smithsonian Institute is giving it some official sort of due – something we never would have believed back in the 80s! The package is huge – 9CDs with a whopping 129 tracks in all, and a 300 page book that supports the recordings with an insane amount of notes, photos, and all sorts of other information – alongside a track list that was put together by folks who include Questlove, 9th Wonder, Chuck D, Jeff Chang, and MC Lyte! The set is especially great on old school tracks up through the golden era hip hop years – but also moves into the 21st century too – and artists include Treacherous Three, Afrika Bambaataa, Fearless Four, Cold Crush Brothers, Herbie Hancock, Run DMC, Fatback, Sugarhill Gang, Kurtis Blow, Funky Four +1, T La Rock, Schoolly D, Beastie Boys, Kool Moe Dee, LL Cool J, Eric B & Rakim, Mantronix, Stetsasonic, Audio Two, Big Daddy Kane, MC Lyte, Marley Marl, Tone Loc, Jungle Brothers, NWA, Public Enemy, Slick Rick, 3rd Bass, De La Soul, Queen Latifa, DOC, 2 Live Crew, Dr Dre, Sir Mix A Lot, Digable Planets, Positive K, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Naughty By Nature, Black Sheep, Tribe Called Quest, Geto Boys, Pharcyde, 2Pac, Warren G, Gang Starr, Notorious BIG, and many many more!

The book brings together columns from a four decade stretch that begins in the late 70s – as Eddy pens tight, short pieces on subjects that include the Beastie Boys, Aerosmith, TLC, Public Enemy, country Music, The Urinals, Kanye West, Mayer Hawthorne, Pet Shop Boys, John Hiatt, Motorhead, The Cure, Voivod, and many others – plus side trips on various formats, styles, and subcultures too. 326 pages, softcover, and with dozens of entries!

✨✧ Idris MuhammadPower Of Soul ... CD
Kudu/CTI, 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible record from funky drummer Idris Muhammad! Idris is probably known for his funky break work on Blue Note and Prestige records sessions of the late 60s and early 70s – but by the time of this 1974 album, he was really expanding his style, hitting a laidback groove that went way beyond the simple drum break, into a world of complicated fills and riffs that forever changed the face of funk. The best example of this is the album's standout groove – the massive cut "Loran's Dance", which has a mellow jazzy vibe that you'll recognize from its popular use as a sample cut over the years (by the Beastie Boys, DJ Shadow, and others.) All cuts are long and mellow, and other titles include "Power Of Soul", "Saddest Thing" and "Piece of Mind". CD

B-Boy, 1988. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tall, Dark, & Handsome may not be one of the best-remembered crews from the 80s – but they've got a fresh, playful approach that really keeps things interesting! These guys really remind us of the energy that the right group of MCs could bring to a party back in the day – yet they've also got a nice sense of complexity in their approach too – sometimes all falling in on a word or rhyme, ala early Beastie Boys – sometimes trading back and forth in a great way, ala Nice & Smooth! There's definitely a sense of humor here – as you might guess from their name – but there's also a raw Bronx-based approach that's hardly a joke. Titles include "Call It What You Wanna", "When Money OnThe Mix", "Fake Fly Girl", "Joyce", "We Don't Need Crack", "The Bronx Is Back", "Tall Dark & Handsome", "Last Of The Great Ones", and "My Love Tune".

✨✧ Jimmy SmithRoot Down (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Verve, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Once an overlooked late Verve album, now a solid classic – and easily one of the funkiest albums ever from organist Jimmy Smith! The groove here is far different than the more familiar Jimmy Smith Verve sessions of the 60s – and the tracks open up in a really extended mode – vamping and jamming with a definite influence from funk, as Jimmy and the combo explore some of the hippest corners of their sound! Players include Paul Humphrey on drums, Wilton Felder on bass, and Arthur Adams on guitar – plus a bit of harmonica from Steve Williams – and there's almost lessons learned here from some of the Latin funk going on in the LA scene of the time. The set was recorded live, and features the great title cut – "Root Down" – a long drawn out groover with a slow funk feel that was made famous by a Beastie Boys sample years back – and other great cuts include "Slow Down Sagg", "Sagg Shootin His Arrow", and "Let's Stay Together".
