This year, the Beastie Boys have been celebrating the past with a bounty of reissues, the most recent of which came in the form of 1994’s Ill Communication back in July.
While we might be a little late to the party with this one, we figured our loyal readers wouldn’t mind a giveaway to celebrate the release. So, we’re going just that.
There will be two winners for this particular giveaway. The first will win a standard double 180 gram vinyl version of the release. The second will win a two-disc CD set, complete with 12 bonus tracks and rarities.
We’ll select two winners at random on Tuesday, August 11th. If interested in participating, send us an email with your name and addresses.
Tracklist follows. If you don’t win, you can pick up the remastered version of Ill Communication, in all its various formats, via beastieboys.com.
