Produced by Funkadelic mastermind George Clinton, 1985's FREAKY STYLEY was a slightly more focused Peppers' recording than the band's 1984 self-titled debut. It also marked the return of original guitarist Hillel Slovak and drummer Jack Irons. Though FREAKY STYLEY lacks the firepower of the Peppers' more hard-rocking future recordings, more than a few Peppers classics reside here. Highlights include "Jungle Man," "Hollywood" (a reworking of the Meters' "Africa"), "Nevermind," "Catholic School Girls Rule," and the oft-overlooked "The Brothers Cup." FREAKY STYLEY helped set the stage for one of the Peppers' finest albums, 1987's THE UPLIFT MOFO PARTY PLAN.
