Description

Derided as one-hit wonders, estranged from their original producer and record label, and in self-imposed exile in Los Angeles, the Beastie Boys were written off by most observers before even beginning to record their second album. But, "Paul's Boutique" eventually transformed the Beasties from a fratboy novelty to hiphop giants.

Reviews

"'A brilliant series of pocket-sized books focussing on a classic album. Each one a work of real love.' NME"
