July 25th – The Beastie Boys release their classic multi-platinum-selling sophomore album, “Paul’s Boutique”, on Capitol Records, 25 years ago, on this day in 1989.

“Paul’s Boutique” was produced by The Dust Brothers, Mario Caldato Jr. and the Beasties as well.

“Paul’s Boutique” contained the hit singles, “Shadrach” and “Hey Ladies”.
