Beastie Boys – Paul's Boutique
First pressing on Beastie Boys Records, Jul 25, 1989
Gatefold album jacket

First purchased this on vinyl because I wanted the full vinyl packaging experience and didn’t have many gatefold jackets like this.

Then I got the CD for portability and eventually to digitize. These days, I listen to the remastered digital version. But this remains a top 5 album.

I posted a while back about how I was going through my vinyl and forgot all these things I had, and a bunch of signed things I totally forgot about from when I worked at a record distributor.

I just checked and I have the double gatefold LP signed. Don't even remember that happening.

@billyjoebowers What a nice surprise! What I've been posting here lately is records I've had stashed away for years and haven't seen in a long time. It's been fun seeing what remains, including the various inserts. Also, some have surprisingly good value per Discogs.

I'd love to see some of your albums. I'm sure there's some good stuff found via your role at a distributor (I worked at an independent record store in the late 80s - early 90s, did a lot of buying used and ordering imports for myself lol)

Yeah, my wife was a big collector for years. I had no money ever until the late 80s early 90s, and then I worked at a distributor. So there's a short period that we have tons of stuff from and then nothing as we moved into new jobs.
