Throwback Thursday's: Beastie's Paul's Boutique Record release party, 1989

In 1989, The Beastie Boys released the epic Paul's Boutique album on Capitol Records.  The album achieved critical acclaim, went double platinum and today continues to be mentioned amongst numerous Top 100 albums of all time lists (Time, Rolling Stone, Spin, etc.).  For the albums release, a party took place on the rooftop of Capitol Records and here it is in its entirety.

Its long,.. about an hour and most of the time your finger will be on the fast forward button but its worth a look to see Mike D in all his cartoonish glory, the Boys awkwardly mingling with execs and just being overall stoned and mostly incoherent.
