When Adam Yauch was diagnosed with cancer last summer, the Beastie Boys decided to put their musical efforts on hold in support of their friend. The group were in the middle of recording album that was to be part 1 of two albums. The group have been back in the studio recording new music for what will become Hot Sauce Committee Part 2, which may or may not be a slightly resequenced version of Hot Sauce Committee Part 1. Nonetheless, the spirit and vibe of Part 1 seems to be in a locked position, and the group decided to reconfigure thigns and just release an album called Part 2 for the hell of it. There is now an official track listing:
1. Tadlock’s Glasses
2. B-Boys In The Cut
3. Make Some Noise
4. Nonstop Disco Powerpack
5. OK
6. Too Many Rappers (featuring NAS)
7. Say It
8. The Bill Harper Collection
9. Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win (featuring Santigold)
10. Long Burn The Fire
11. Funky Donkey
12. Lee Majors Come Again
13. Multilateral Nuclear Disarmament
14. Pop Your Balloon
15. Crazy Ass Shit
16. Here’s A Little Something For Ya

As with anything Beastie, there are sure to be a few tracks leaked, perhaps songs that were recorded but left off the album, or eventual B-sides, bonus stuff, maybe Biz Markie will find some Bob James-style bells and rock it. Regardless of who shows up to the party, it’s nice to know that after almost 30 (!!!) years, the Beastie Boys are coming up with another album.

718-498-1043: The Paul’s Boutique 10th Anniversary Tribute Album (Free MP3 download)

The 20th anniversary of the Beastie BoysPaul’s Boutique is this July (the 25th to be exact). Ten years ago, I put together this tribute album originally as a Crut-only project, but I brought on some of my friends to help out on a few of the songs. I still get requests for this, so here it is. Please post a link to this entry so people can not only download the full album, but check out my website. I’m still looking for the makeshift cover art I created, but until then, here’s 718-498-1043:

J3 recently put together what he calls The Root Down’s Kitchen Sink Paul’s Boutique Mix, which you can take a listen to by clicking to his blog.

Will I be creating a 20th anniversary mix? Will my mix of “B-Boy Bouillabaisse” finally be made? Stay tuned.
