Beastie Boys reissuing six EPs for 30th anniversary of ‘Paul’s Boutique’
Beastie Boys celebrated the 25th anniversary of Ill Communication with a documentary earlier this year, and this month, their seminal sophomore album Paul’s Boutique will turn 30 (time flies!). In celebration of the milestone, the group will release six EPs from the album’s era on streaming services for the first time. Over a three-week span, tons of B-sides, remixes, live versions, and more will see digital releases, including the heftily titled An Exciting Evening At Home With Shadrach, Meshach And Abednego EP, which is out today. The aforementioned release features six non-album tracks that dropped months following Paul’s Boutique, including one track featuring Biz Markie, and instrumentals from Paul’s Boutique producers The Dust Brothers.
Another release out today is the Love American Style EP, which features two Paul’s Boutique singles (“Hey Ladies” and “Shake Your Rump”), alongside two B-sides, “33% God” and “Dis Yourself in ’89 (Just Do It).” The remaining releases will be remix EPs of Paul’s Boutique highlights “Hey Ladies” and “Shadrach” (out July 26), and further remixes of “Shake Your Rump” and “Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun” (out August 2nd).
