Beastie Boys – Sabotage/Get It Together
Another find on my trip to Toronto with Mike this year, I think I paid $2 for this. Or was it $3? No matter, it was a steal.
The first two tracks are the album versions of Sabotage and Get It Together. Surely I don’t need to tell you a damn thing about this slices of awesome, right? Right!
Resolution Time is bottom-heavy, with that trademark Beasties bullhorn vocals sound and some chiming church bells. Lock into a thing that works and just go! I can dig it! Sounds like it could’ve come from Check Your Head.
Get It Together, the Buck Wild Remix is next. It turns the tune into a jazzy trip-hoppy track while maintaining the bottom end. This is smoother than the album track.
Dope Little Song is old school B-Boys sound YEAH! I loved this!
And lastly it’s one more jam of Get It Together, the A.B.A. Remix, which comes packed with a completely different bass line. I’m not as much of a fan of this as the others, but it’s still cool.
One more thing in the long list of things to love about the Beastie Boys is their ability to not only offer up a single for a great song that deserved attention, but to drop other versions that really give different looks at the tune. This isn’t just some DJ Numbnuts adding one instrument they thought should be there and essentially not changing anything else, these are the same song but quite different feels of it!
Great single, cool price. Love me some Beasties.
