Album Review

Love Saves the Day kicks off with a title track that lurches like prime Black Keys, but this isn't a sign that G. Love & Special Sauce are scrambling to keep up with the times, nor is it an indication that they're aching for their past. Instead, the band — which, as on 2014's Sugar, is a reconstituted version of their original lineup featuring guitarist/vocalist G. Love, drummer Jeffrey Clemens, and bassist Jim Prescott, who returned in 2014 after a five-year hiatus — feel as if they're pulling together all their interests, both past and present, to engage with a perpetual now. For G. Love & Special Sauce, they live in a world where soul-jazz is filtered through hip-hop and co-exists happily with greasy electric blues; a world where rap, R&B, and rock are traditions to be played with, not treated with respectful distance. Appropriately, all the invited guests — and there are a lot of them — share this sensibility and all these musicians underscore the group's wide-ranging interests. Roots rock stalwarts David Hidalgo and Lucinda Williams stand alongside the funkier Ozomatli, Money Mark, and DJ Logic, plus there's a feint toward pop via a duet with Citizen Cope. It's aggressively eclectic but it's not showy: it doesn't draw attention to its cornucopia of sounds, it simply slides from one jam to another. If the songs don't necessarily stick, that's fine — this is all about vibe, the idea of creating a never-ending party where everybody is welcome and, in that regard, G. Love & Special Sauce succeed.

Customer Reviews

Rock & Blues

G Love's last two album's have really nailed the core sound of their "special sauce"- blues, rock, and hip hop. "Love Saves the Day" leans more to their hard rock roots and shows the range of this tight band. "Dis Song" is a winner with a KILLer hook and G Love's signature confident rhymes. These songs will translate well live. Get back to Philly soon! M👍👍🎸

Best Album Yet!

I haven’t taken this album off of repeat since I downloaded it. This, as in all of his albums, is a great representation of why I keep coming back to him and his group; their sound is like nothing else I’m listening to out there. I’ve seen him live a couple of times, his shows are equally as energetic and exciting. Met him at both shows, and he is one of the most gracious musicians I have ever met and very engaged with his fans. He spent the better part of five minutes telling me about this new album, which prompted my purchase of it. Great guy, and I’m a huge fan.
Great buy here folks!

It's Legit

But it! G love and the special sauce keep turning out great records, their like wine getting better with age, awwww yeah

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

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 video for "Cold...
