Third studio album from the legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers, released on Sept. 29, 1987
Only studio album to feature all four founding members on every track (Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Hillel Slovak, Jack Irons)
The "rockingest" record the band has ever made, according to Flea
Signature funk-rock music, with reggae and heavy metal influence
The Red Hot Chili Peppers recruited new producer Michael Beinhorn, who encouraged the members to expand their musical horizons in order to create a more diverse work. The recording process was difficult due to Kiedis' drug addiction; however, the band was ultimately content with it's work on Uplift. The album was more successful than it's predecessors both critically and commercially, and was the band's first album to enter the Billboard 200. Although Uplift's follow-up Mother's Milk would reach Gold first, The Uplift Mofo Party Plan would go on to become the band's earliest effort to do so. Following the tour to promote the album, Slovak died of a heroin overdose and shortly after, Irons decided to quit the band, unable to cope with his friend's death.
