Once Adam Yauch discovered he had cancer in 2009, the Beastie Boys shelved their forthcoming The Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 1 and its companion volume, gradually reviving and revising the project once Yauch went into remission. At this point, they scrapped their convoluted plans to release concurrent complementary volumes of THSC and simply went forth with The Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2, which retained the bulk of the track list from Pt 1. All this hurly-burly camouflages the essential truth of The Hot Sauce Committee: that the Beasties could sit on an album for two years to no ill effect to their reputation or the record’s quality.
There is some serious shaking going on in the studio here, and it appears the veteran Sample has found a great situation to let out his more aggressive edges. What must it be like to be a legend and try to somehow uncover a path you haven't driven on before? How can a cat like Sample top himself? It's always rewarding when a veteran artist twists expectations with a brand new sound, even if reaching into his past for the germ of the idea.
This is an upgrade from my previous post. It's the audio demux of the Rattle And Hum DVD 1999 Paramount Home Video in 16bit/48kHz. Contains 11 songs not included on the album "U2: Rattle and Hum". I used the AC3 6ch track (instead of 2ch) and converted it to stereo using foobar2000 (Convert 5.1 to stereo). The 6ch is more powerful and bright than the 2ch, all the instruments and voice are very clear.
