TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘Paul’s Boutique’ – Second LP by BEASTIE BOYS

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘Paul’s Boutique’
BEASTIE BOYS
Released: 25 Juli 1989
Second longplayer

ROLLING STONE wrote: ” ‘Paul’s Boutique’ named after a Brooklyn store whose radio
ad is tossed in the mix and whose picture graces the cover, surprises from the get-go.
Each track brims with ideas and references too numerous to catalog, veering in new
directions at every verse. The songs are buoyed by the deft interplay of the three voices
and a poetic tornado of imagery. The Boys’ rap references range from Magilla Gorilla to Dickens, their musical samples are equally far-flung, including Johnny Cash, Hendrix and
Jean Knight’s ‘Mr. Big Stuff.’ The Boys are just being themselves, thrashing about in a reality ignored by too many mainstream white-rock acts.”

Score: 4/5 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: ‘Maybe not their best known album,
but certainly one of their best.

TOP TRACK: Hey Ladies
