Three Landmark Beastie Boys Albums To Receive Vinyl Reissues

November 9, 2017

Capitol Records are to release special new vinyl editions of three landmark albums from New York hip-hop pioneers Beastie Boys. The three titles, The In Sound From Way Out!Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 and To The5 Boroughs will all be pressed on 180g vinyl on 8 December through Capitol Records.

Originally released through Beastie Boys’ French fan club, The In Sound From Way Out! is a collection of the group’s funky instrumentals from Check Your Head and Ill Communication, with a couple of new tracks thrown in. The Beasties had a flair for loose, gritty funk and soul-jazz, and the stuttering, greasy keyboards of Money Mark give the music an extra edge -- he helps make the music sound as authentic as anything from the early 70s.

 To The 5 Boroughs was Beastie Boys’ sixth album, originally released in June 2004. Debuting at No.1 on the Billboard 200 it sold 360,000 copies in its first week and later gained a Platinum certification by the RIAA for sales of over one million copies in the US. Four singles were released from the album, ‘Ch-Check It Out’, ‘Triple Trouble’, ‘An Open Letter to NYC’ and ‘Right Right Now Now’.

 Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 was the eighth and final studio album by Beastie Boys. The album received critical acclaim upon its release, on 27 April 2011, and was also a commercial success, debuting at No.2 on the Billboard 200. The release was supported by four singles – ‘Lee Majors Come Again’, ‘Too Many Rappers’, featuring Nas, ‘Make Some Noise’ and ‘Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win’, featuring Santigold.

The 180g vinyl editions of The In Sound From Way Out!Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 and To The 5 Boroughs will be released on 8 December. Scroll down to read the full tracklists and explore our dedicated Beastie Boys Artist Page.
