Beastie Boys - Check Your Head

Paul’s Boutique always rates higher, but Check Your Head was what did it for me. There’s a sample in Funky Boss that jolted me big time when I first heard it - a reggae riff from an unmarked cassette tape my Dad used to play on car trips to Byron. Took me years to track down the source - Big Youth’s track Solomon a Gunday from Screaming Target - and it’s that depth of sampling that marks the B-Boys out for greatness. Sample-riffic and tight tight tight.
