The Best of Red Hot Chili Peppers [EMI]by Red Hot Chili Peppers
EMI-Capitol Special Markets' The Best of Red Hot Chili Peppers may be a budget-line collection, but for casual fans, it may be a wise choice. All of the group's best-known tunes from its Capitol recordings -- "Behind the Sun," "Johnny Kick a Hole in the Sky," "Fire," "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes," "Higher Ground," "Knock Me Down," "Fight Like a Brave," "Taste the Pain," "If You Want Me to Stay" -- are here, and for listeners who aren't dedicated fans, that may be all they need. Granted, many fans of the group will view the very existence of a budget-line compilation as something of a sacrilege, but for those who just want the hits (albeit only the hits before Blood Sugar Sex Magik), this isn't a bad choice at all.

This CD is a good one, but it's not my all time favorite. The songs that i really liked where Higher Ground, Johnny kick a hole in the sky, and Me and my friends.
Nice selection, it was good to hear some older stuff. Funky!
This Truely is their best songs. If u were a new fan buy this album. It is a must Get C.D. I like it because of their style. The best darned Style ever. My favorite song is jungle man. After hearing this C.D. they will be your favorite band. After reading this u should go out and buy it. I promise you will love it. If u dont like it keep the recept.
