Album Review

Although G. Love & Special Sauce's self-titled album is their most popular (approaching gold status), it's not their best. Although there are quite a few musical surprises, the overall sound and quality of the compositions are neither as focused nor as rewarding as future releases would be. "Cold Beverage" became the band's signature tune and a fan favorite, featuring lighthearted jive lyrics and funky musical accompaniment, and its popular MTV video put them on the map. "This Ain't Living" is a precursor to the comforting Philly soul style that would be explored more thoroughly on 1997's Yeah, It's That Easy. "Town to Town" adds variety to the album with its slow-as-molasses blues style. Most of the other tracks tend to blend into each other after a while because of their similar sound and feel ("Rhyme for the Summertime," "Shooting Hoops," etc.). Even with its mishaps, G. Love & Special Sauce's debut serves as the musical foundation on which the group would build its future sound.

Customer Reviews

Must own if a fan.

This is one hell of an debut album for this trio, some of G's best songs are on this cd. Pick this one up if you enjoy their stuff.

Ahead of their time

Rhythm and blues meets and hip-hop and rap with some Philly flavor...but in the 90's!!!! As far as I know, no one had a sound like these guys when this album came out. In my opinion, all of G. Love's work is compared to it. It's a jam, and it's catchy,and it's of my favorite albums from the 90's. Try it...you'll like it.

Great chill mode Cd

if you just want to sit back and chill in your own minde..G.Love can take you there

G. Love & Special Sauce are a Philadelphia-based trio whose laid-back, sloppy blues sound is quite unique, as it encompasses the sound/production of classic R&B and recent rap artists (the Beastie Boys, in particular). The group — G. Love (born Garrett Dutton) on guitar/vocals/harmonica, Jeff Clemens on drums, and Jim Prescott on upright bass — released their self-titled debut in 1994 on OKeh/Epic. It received enthusiastic reviews and nearly went gold on the strength of the MTV-spun...
