"G. Love & Special Sauce are a trio from Philadelphia, PA. Their 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)." -allmusic.com

Best track: "Stepping Stones", "I-76", "200 Years"

They've got the recipe

"Philly born and bred, G. Love (Garret Dutton) and Special Sauce pour out all their emotion and talent into an enticing amalgam of hip-hop, blues, folk, and funk. The band's talent shines forth the brightest on this cd, their third effort. Here's a brief overview of the tracks: 1. Stepping Stones - 5 stars - The hook "you keep using me just like a stepping stone" will be stuck in your head for weeks. 2. I-76 - 4 1/2 stars - This one is a funky tune about hoops, particularly G's team, the 76ers. 3. Lay Down the Law - 5 stars - The surprisingly simple and beautiful prelude to the bulk of this track is exquisite. 4. Slipped Away - 2 1/2 stars - A dark tune about someone deceased in G's family, possibly his mother. Too dreary for me, doesn't fit well with the rest of the tracks on here. 5. You Shall See - 3 stars - Nothing really special on this one, just an average track. 6. Take You There - 5 stars - Awesome, laid-back summer tune with a sweet cowbell. 7. Willow Tree - 5 stars - Another great song for lounging in the sun, good stuff. 8. Yeah, It's That Easy - 4 stars - Nice piano backed up by G's sweet rhymes. 9. Recipe - 5 stars - Very funky and soulful, great track10. 200 Years - 3 stars - A little bit dull, not bad though.11. Making Amends - 3 1/2 stars - Fun and upbeat number.12. Pull the Wool - 10 stars - Absolutely amazing. This song is one of the most beautiful tracks I've ever heard. 9 minutes and 26 seconds of sheer bliss.13. When We Meet Again - 4 stars - G's standard acoustic, folky last number."

"I picked this up after a friend told me I should get it since I thought that Philadolphonic was a bit disapointing(with the exception of Numbers, which is a great song). Figuring I wasn't getting anything "special" I plopped down the money and bought the CD. Low and behold, it is now one of the most charished CDs I own.The first thing I love about this CD is the vibe! The whole CD reflects a very relaxed and laid back band. While the music isn't quite as tight as some bands because of this, the sloppy blues, groove, hip-hop all works so well together. Another thing that helps that is melody and harmony. The band's ability to play of each other shows up in every song. The background vocals excentuate Garret's deep, low voice. The end result are songs with more soul than most pop-soul acts these days. The drums keep the pace moving. The harmonica adds a nice touch to the band's laid back blues sound. The up-right bass is also just right.Everthing about this album just feels so right. I never though any band could create a CD that actually discribes my attitude in life, G. Love and Special Sauce have managed to do it. The slackn' grooves are just what need when I need something to sit back and relax to(sorry but it's hard to do that to the new Sevendust album). If I have one complaint about this CD is that it drags in some places. Pull the Wool could have been 3 minutes shorter and still have the same effect. Otherwise this is the perfect CD to grab cooler full of some good beverages and kick the feet up and feel the music. Great stuff."
