This is an outstanding production. It has a great mix of pop, funk, rock and even a little soul for good measure. This is an album that crosses decades and genres at the same time. For the true musicphile, this is a must have album that is lyrically intriguing and melodically consuming. Well recorded, a rarity, you are definitely getting you monies worth in this 28 track collection. Compared to the common formula of today with two to three appealing tracks, this album has something for everyone. I challenge anyone not to become hooked on at least ten tracks. My wife bought it for me for my birthday, an incrdible gift indeed! For the fans of the early Peppers, this album will not disappoint. For those new to the Peppers, there is a little of everything here. These is a little Doors, G&R, Jack Johnson, Marley, 50 Cent, jazz, blues. .. its all here! I love it! I look forward to reading feedback from others. Cheers and enjoy! Bluescat.
