One of my favorite albums of all time "Check Your Head" by the Beastie Boys just got the "re-mastered and re-released" treatment.  CYH was one of my most influential albums of all time (next to Nevermind and Endtroducing).  I had it on tape from one of my brother's friends (Eddie) when I was in the 5th grade.  Totally blew me away.  Especially the instrumental tracks.  Not only did these guys rap, but they could play real instruments.  Who does that?  I can definitely say that album is a big part of the reason I play bass the way I play and eventually found my way over to the turntables.  So when I read about this being re-released yesterday you can imagine my enthusiasm.  

Anyways, it's a pretty slick deal.  I ordered my copy last night on double cd.  You can also check out a commentary of the album here, which is awesome (MCA talks about the fuzz bass).  Peace
