I think this was Hillel Slovak's last album before he passed away (kids, heroin is bad). This CD is loaded with the funky bass and crazy vocals the chili-peppers are famous for. Its one of their better albums.

The first Peppers' album I ever got was Mother's Milk, which I really dug, and a friend recommended Uplift Mofo Party Plan. First of all, the groove in "Funky Crime" is so incredibly infectious that any time I get together with a bass player, I always make them play Flea's part so that we can just jam.

In general, the album is really strong, and there's some solid rhythm guitar and little lead fills with a variety of textures and tones. "Behind the Sun" is a bit more pop, but still really memorable, and there'a great funked-up version of Dylan's Subterranean Home Sick Blues.
