When I was eleven, I saved my allowance for three weeks so I could buy “License to Ill” from the scary adults who worked the MusicPlus on Fairfax. Twenty-five years and many pencil-winding “surgeries” later, it is one of the few cassettes I’ve bothered saving over the years despite the fact I no longer have a tape player. (Other tapes that survived the CD-MP3 transition are “Trapped in the Body of a White Girl” by Julie Brown and the “Rock n’ Roll High School” soundtrack). So, here is a little Beastie love. RIP MCA.
