Officially now caught up with our outstanding “need to listen to” records. Digitized the 14 sides to this bad boy last night, and can’t wait to enjoy these acapella classics to and from work. Hit me up if you want a copy. 14 tracks total.
1986 was a very fruitful year for the Beastie Boys. Nearly every track from their debut LP saw a 12″ or 7″ release (It’s the New Style b/w Paul Revere featured here), and the band, with a lot of help from producer Rick Rubin, sold a very sizable amount of records. This hype sticker, and the music it promotes, is now 30 years old. Crazytown. RIP MCA.
Not much of a mystery after all, especially considering the last track, but the lack of band reference on this promotional sticker is slightly interesting, if at the very least moderately comical. Although this sticker has (clearly) seen better days, the music within this (not-so) cryptic album remains as timeless as hypocrisy itself. Stay angry, my friends.
Back to back sticker posts?! Well, yeah… no shame on this, here end. This one, from my latest addition, comes with a radiant review from Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. Not that I needed any coaxing when it comes to The Budos Band, but ANYTHING that comes with a Slayer-related stamp of approval is fair game as far as I’m concerned. More on The Budos Band to come… unless I forget, or lose interest.
We’re all Foreigners to someone, we all wanna know what love is, and we want you to show us. We desire to feel what love is, and we know you can show us. 1984’s Agent Provocateur knew love, and it wasn’t afraid to showcase this obsession by means of a silver and bold-red sticker on its gleaming, cellophane face (celloface? probably not). Yes I own a Foreigner album (two in fact), and yes, I’m okay with this.
