I ended up ordering mine from Amazon, along with a new French press.

Check Your Head reissue next month?!?! Has this been mentioned/discussed?






Apparently Check your Head is getting the grand royal treatment, too:





Fast on the heels of the Paul’s Boutique reissue, March 30th will find the Beastie Boys re-releasing the album that followed Paul’s, 1992’s Check Your Head. The Check Collector’s Edition will come in various formats, from digital to CD to vinyl, along with the B-sides and other bonus tracks from the era. Buying the Digital Deluxe version will also score you the music videos — complete with band commentary — from Check’s singles. The digital reissues will be released March 30th, while their physical counterpart hits stores April 7th. For the hardcore fans, an ultra-deluxe 4 LP 180HQ vinyl version packaged in a fabric-wrapped hardcover coffee table book case will be released with a limited run of 2,000 copies, according to a press release. The Beasties’ Website has been updated to celebrate the Check Your Head reissue, with the band’s performance on the Arsenio Hall Show embedded on the site. Additionally, the Beasties announced today that they’ll headline Los Angeles’ storied Hollywood Bowl on September 24th in anticipation of their new album, due out later this year. The group will also perform at this year’s Bonnaroo, and are among those rumored to being playing Lollapalooza in August.


In addition to the Paul’s and Check packages and the new album due out later this year, the band is also expected to reissue 1994’s Ill Communication at some point before the summer. Some online retailers are listing an April 21st release date for that album. As Rock Daily recently reported, the Boys are hard at work on their first album since 2007’s instrumental The Mix-Up.

mp3 audio commentary of Check Your Head available for free here

I just finished listening to it - much more enjoyable than the PB commentary. Stories-wise, they are a lot more connected to this record and its era, which helps. PB era just seems like one big dust cloud to them.
