TT5B deluxe
 
To the 5 Boroughs came out 15 years ago today.

For the occasion, twelve rare tracks have just been released digitally in addition to the original 15 songs on the album.

Listen here: https://BeastieBoys.lnk.to/ToThe5BoroughsDigitalDeluxe


A couple of new songs and a lot of remixes added!

forgot how lit the b-sides were on this. if they'd swapped the political songs out for these it would have changed the entire landscape of this record for the better.

p.s. i dont see new tracks, just remixes. what am i missing?

Agreed. i like this album. I like the political songs, but I like all of those B-sides a lot more. Just way more fun. And as far as political raps THIS GOVERNMENT NEEDS A TUNE UP is by far the best one. Not sure why that was left off the record.

yea not sure why this was left off, great record.

In A World Gone Mad is pretty much the only song I can do without but I don't mind the rest at all...in fact i quite like them. coming off 9/11 and NY and them i think the political jams fit nicely.

What is the actual name of the Triple Trouble remix that is only called "Triple Trouble" on the deluxe version? It's track #20. Thanks.

Massive fan of TT5B so I知 glad they are marking the occasion.

Nonetheless, I was so disappointed when I saw the rarities tracklist as my mind instantly jumped to unreleased cuts that might have been recorded but were left off the album, ie. Check My Filas etc. (I think that was a title right?)

Still, good shit, good era.

i知 on the fence with TT5B tbh. it was a ok album with a fun tour. i def loved it when it came out but i tend to rarely revisit it nowadays. there are some gens in the b-sides tho. they make up for some of the clunkers on the album.

i知 gonna listen to this tonight tho. i might even get my old trucker hat with my zodiac sign on it just for the occasion.

I feel about the same. The sonics were kind of harsh, compressed and digital sounding compared to their other albums. There are some bangers on there though. I listen to it every once in a while and as far as touring goes it was probably the height of their game.

Listening to it right now, nothing new except for the Triple Trouble Dexter remix and the one just titled 'Triple Trouble Ghram Coxon' not to be mistaken with the 'Ghram Coxon Remix' that that was on the Triple Trouble singles.

Pretty nice with the Sure shot Break. Does anyone know who the guest Emcee is? What they're saying (something about Paul's Boutique) and what language they're rapping in? Sounds French.

The remix you are talking about I think it's the one called Brainpower Remix back in the days. Brainpower is a Dutch MC, and I'm pretty sure the language is Dutch too, but I'm sure Taco Zipo could confirm :D

Full versions of the 'Shazam!' Ad-Rock and Mike D remixes would've been nice.

i reckon fella is referring to the songs listed on the dry-erase board at O-Scope, as evidenced by some photos that surfaced of said sessions. i personally think alot of those were simply working titles for songs we came to know under different names upon release of the record. but ya never know

Indeed! I was trying to find the original post / photo but to no avail. You could well be right. For whatever reason, when I saw extra rare tracks that is what came to mind. On reflection, Now Get Busy, Brrr Stick 薦m, And Then I, and This Government is a fair batch of non-album cuts from those sessions. I would be surprised if there were any / many more.
