iTunes Editors’ Notes

G. Love & Special Sauce continue their ping-pong trajectory between funk, hip-hop, soul, and pop on Superhero Brother (although traces of hip-hop here are admittedly scant), and reach a pinnacle of soulful hippie-dom with the single, “Peace, Love & Happiness.”  You can’t argue with the message (“If you’re hatin’, you’re sure not livin’”), but it also swings in an infectious sweet and summery way that makes you want to hug your neighbor while you share a cold one on your front stoop. The entire record is filled with a light and breezy feel: “Wiggle Worm” is just as much fun as “Peace, Love,” with muscular, swaggering harmonicas and keyboards weaving in and out of Love’s playful vocals; “Soft and Sweet” is a gently rocking and disarmingly endearing ode to parental love, while the plucky “Grandmother” celebrates its topic with funky guitars and a slinky groove; the charming “Wontcha Come Home” has a sprinkling of tropical spice with sparkling acoustic guitars and plinking pianos. There's plenty of funky get-up-and-go on tracks like party-starters “What We Need” and “Georgia Brown,” plus a clear display of affection for vintage soul and pop on tracks like “Communication” and “City Livin.”

G Love is BAAAAAACK

Before 'Peace, Love and Happiness' EVEN STARTS, this disc smothers you with that vintage Special Sauce sound, HELL YES. Felt like I found a long-lost brother listening to this disc...it's funkitee sweet from beginning to end. Get ready for the best one-two punch coming at tracks 10 &11 with Georgia Brown and Who's Got the Weed...then wash it all down with G saving the world one lick at a time on his Gretsch Electromatic Corvette (green, of course;)

Philly Representin'

Heard a handful of these tracks live last year at the Penn's Landing Festival Pier, and at the Electric Factory, and have been awaiting the studio release. If you haven't listened to G. Love yet... you don't know what you are missin. A unique mix of harmonica drivin blues laced with rap. An amazing artist out of Philly, If this is your first listen, you really need to download their other albums, and DEFINATELY see them live. G. Love and Special Sauce never disappoint at a show. Thanks G, for signing my throwback Phillies jersey at last year's Philly Festival Pier show! Had a great time at the show, and I'll see you again this year at the Pier with John Butler! Can't wait for the show...

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.
