$5.99 MP3 Album Deal: Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘Mother’s Milk’
Stoogeypedia   |  

Mother's Milk

Mother’s Milk, the record which propelled the funky punky ensemble Red Hot Chili Peppers into the mainstream, yet stayed true to its roots, is now available in MP3 format from Amazon right now for only $5.99. If you’d like a physical copy of Mother’s Milk, the CD is currently is $10.73 and is an “AutoRip” selection, which means if you purchase the CD, you’ll ALSO get the MP3 download for FREE.

This album is now, almost 25 years after its original release in 1989, a dynamic sonic belt notch in the band’s oeuvre and is the first to sport the now-classic lineup of leadman Anthony Kiedis, bassman Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and the ex-guitarist John Frusciante. From the opening notes of “Good Time Boys,” the group still has that sort of looseness which was funkified no doubt, but had a deer in the headlights lack of musical discipline that permeated on their earlier albums (albums with original guitarist Hillel Slovak, who had recently passed away around the original release of Mother’s Milk and thusly the record is pretty much dedicated to him body and soul). That said, Mother’s Milk still sports a much better arranged tightness from the band that only adds pounds of muscle to the tunes, which range from quasi hip hop in the ode to the famous NBA great “Magic Johnson,” the horns-a-plenty “Subway to Venus,” the genitals in the cookie jar sex up of “Sexy Mexican Maid,” and the wonderful “Johnny, Kick A Hole in the Sky.” If that ain’t enough, they even do a nicely browned on both sides version of Hendrix’s “Fire” as well as a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground,” which brought upon their first taste of mainstream popularity (in part thanks to the song’s video), along with the album’s other single, “Knock Me Down.” The band’s last record before people like Rick Rubin and the folks at Warner Brothers Records put the band into the superstar stratosphere, Mother’s Milk is almost like the demo or the pilot, of what was to come.
