The Beastie Boys did it with three MCs and just one DJ

Isn't that kind of like making a shot-for-shot remake of a film. I'm always left to wonder: why?

"Producer - Beastie Boys (tracks: 1 to 13, 15), Dust Brothers, The (tracks: 1 to 13, 15) "

"I think half of the tracks were written when we got there, and the other half we wrote together."

Since Paul's Boutique came out in '89 I've worn out two cassette tapes, one original LP, three CDs, and am on my second vinyl copy (the 20th anniversary remastered re-issue, sounds fantastic). Number 1 of my Desert Island 10.

It's not even close to a shot-for-shot remake. It's much heavier on the samples on the pieces that I heard. Sometimes to the exclusion of the Beastie Boys vocal tracks.

Don't waste your time. It's "British hot"

Brings back memories of a Summer A differential equations class and doing problems for hours every day with a tape of Paul's Boutique on loop.

Interesting, but hit-or-miss. I'm not through the whole thing yet, but DJ Moneyshot seems to have more skillz than the other two.

Same for me, except with De La Soul's "Buhloone Mindstate".  Though Paul's Boutique is in my top 10 as well.

I always preferred Check Your Head, though Paul's Botique is awesome.

De La Soul, by the way, just gave away their entire digital catalog to anyone who wanted to download it.

It sounds like something you'd be given as an exercise in a class on sampling, looping, and mixing.

Underrated?  Really?  It is always rated as their best album and it isnt like people forget about the Beastie's when they are rating things on random lists.

So "who the heck is Paul, and what's so special about his boutique?" is right out?

Never mind.  Found it on Google.  For those Farkers not into that particular genre of performance art, here's an summary of TFA:

Somebody you've never heard of rebooted an album of a rap group you've never listened to.

Seems like a lot of work, but people do weirder things and call it "art" every day.

Great mix. I've had it from Solid Steel as well as the De La Soul mix.

Yeah, I saw that a couple months ago. I already had most of it, but it was certainly cool of them.

Back in February they put their whole catalog up for download. I don't think it still is but I'm sure you can find it at the normal places.

I love Paul's Boutique and so far (2/3 of the way through) this mix is good too, but it's very different than an album.

The real difference is that Paul's was a coherent rap album. There are looped bass lines and drum parts that established the skeleton of a song, and shorter samples throughout tracks as fills or whatever, and the raps over top of these tracks made the album.

In this mix there are lots of long samples out of entire other songs. For example at one point they play a long chunk of "Pump it up". It makes this feel more like a party mix that happens to include a lot of Beastie Boys material than a single album.

I'd be interested to see someone take Paul's a road map for creating a new album. Build some new tracks out of samples and put some funny/creative/charismatic rap over it.

Thanks, saw the email. Will be checking that out tonight at home.

What I like most about it is that the DJ's took many of the same songs that were sampled for the original, but sample them in different ways. For example, the Dust Brothers took just the drum beat from "When the Levee Breaks", while the remix also uses the harmonica/guitar parts.

This is pretty cool. I am liking it. Ain't got sh*t on Paul's Boutique, but really, most albums don't.

The Solid Steel remix of Paul's Boutique is really solid. The more you listen to it, the more you appreciate how great the original album is.

However, this came out oh... 2 years ago? Not that the reminder isn't cool, but someone somewhere needs a repeat tag.

For what it's worth, I broke up the continuous recording into the separate tracks which makes enjoying parts it of it much easier instead of all in one sitting.

Chill.  It was an accurate explanation.  There are probably millions of people who have heard of the Beastie Boys but don't know what songs they sing.  Just like there are millions of people (mostly white guys who live in states that begin with the letter "I") who couldn't name a Selena song or anything by Jay Z.

Same for me, except with De La Soul's "Buhloone Mindstate".  Though Paul's Boutique is in my top 10 as well.


Buhloone Mindstate is sort of a timebomb.  Meaning, it took years for that record to sink in... but when it did.  Boom.

But Paul's Boutique is timeless, I'm sure this cool but wonder why it needs to be buggered around with anyway.

To me, it began to fall apart in the middle, so now I am listening to Paul's Boutique.
