''Out in L.A.'' is a compilation of rare tracks by the Red Hot Chili Peppers released November 1, 1994 on EMI. The tracks contained are varied with the inclusion of four remixes, live cover songs by Jimi Hendrix and Thelonious Monk ("F.U." is a joke lyric over the melody of "Bemsha Swing"), demos and joke songs.

These recordings are the first the band made and are described in Anthony Kiedis' autobiography ''Scar Tissue'' as being the most prolific sessions the band ever had. Four of these songs were recorded with Jack Sherman and Cliff Martinez on the band's first album. However, these early versions are said to be the preferred ones as they capture the original vibe intended. Hillel Slovak's and Jack Irons's playing are instrumental to this. Many of these tracks were included in the remastered versions of the band's first two albums. However, "You Always Sing the Same" (track 15) was already on their debut album. - Wikipedia
