The Beastie Boys ‘Paul’s Boutique’ released on this day in 1989

I can comfortably say I never really got into The Beastie Boys first album ‘Licensed to Ill’, it was played ad nauseam and at every party I went to during high school the jocks would crank up “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)” (maybe that’s what really turned me off of it) but then The Beastie Boys released the now classic Dust Brothers produced ‘Paul’s Boutique’, I was then converted into a die-hard life-long fan.

Below are some facts about the now breakthrough album ‘Paul’s Boutique’:

- ‘Paul’s Boutique’ was The Beastie Boys second studio album
- it was produced by the Beastie Boys, Dust Brothers and Mario Caldato, Jr.
- 105 songs were sampled on the album
- The Beastie Boys had spent about a $1/4 million in rights and licensing for samples used on the album
- The cover art and gatefold is a photograph of Ludlow Street (as shot from 99 Rivington Street)
- ” Rolling Stone called it ”the ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’ of rap.”
- Miles Davis said he never got tired of listening to it
- “Mike D was playing the tracks for me. They started with a drum that was obviously from the intro to ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.’ And I said, ‘I don’t know if you can do that.’ And right as I said that, a guitar line from Abbey Road came in, and you realized that there were two Beatles samples. Mike said, ‘Well, hopefully they’ll be able to work it out.’ And I said, ‘Mike, come on, man, it’s the Beatles.’ He goes, ‘Yeah. I know. But what could be cooler than being sued by the Beatles?’” – Tim Carr (former A&R executive/Capitol Records), excerpted from The Skills to Pay the Bills by Alan Light, 2005
