Product Description

Tart, Tangy, Smooth, and oh so lip-smacking Sweet! Aaah yes, time to praise the almighty summer sippin' thirst quencher, being served straight up G. Love style, ice cool and always refreshing. On his second release for Brushfire Records, the Philly boy offers up Lemonade, a series of soul drenched tracks pouring out blues infused hip-hop, which people have been trying to label for years. The best advice .don't try to tame it or claim it; it's simply his sonic trademark, instantly recognizable and addictively delicious. Seven albums, thirteen years, and a million worldwide units later, Lemonade is the most cohesive and rewarding album Garrett Dutton - a.k.a. G. Love has ever delivered.

5.0 out of 5 stars G Love + Special Sauce; so happy the sound is back... March 15 2007
By Christopher D. Mueller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Helping a friend get settled in the area - and went flipping through the CD collection that came along. I did a double take when I saw the good ol' "G. Love and Special Sauce" first album, self-titled. What memories that brought back - in high school - of finding this new sound... when I was kind of tired of the same old stuff at the time (read: grunge rock...) G Love with Special Sauce was true feelgood music, true to some jazzy, bluesy, hip-hop roots with a taste of other influences. I didn't need political lyrics or any statements more than the background message in the melody - simmer down or shake your body. G Love catered with something unique and better yet, just fun. (exception in a few songs - how can an artist not have a message? Listen to "This Ain't Livin'" and a few other songs on their other albums. Typically the songs are simple - you'll get the feel that G Love's not out to save the world - he's out to enjoy it).

In between G Love & Special Sauce found greater success with each album released. Not quite in order - Yeah It's that Easy and Philadelphonic were even better - Coast to Coast and Electric Mile both strayed from their sound for me, but I appreciate the experimentation and listen to them equally. The lineup of all their albums is a must have. Their Greatest Hits album is only a handful - picking the low-lying fruit of their sounds.

The Hustle came out in '04 under Jack Johnson's label. The first without Special Sauce and it showed. I liked it, but I missed the groove that Prescott and Clemens brought (the Special Sauce of the band).

Lemonade stands out as a return of Special Sauce to the mix - full circle. Not only that, but accompanied by a really great lineup of guests (check the song list). G Love helped carry the momentum of the genre that I like the most... I'm not going to even label it. But you can visit Brushfire Records, or search for his guest artists, or similiar artists - to get a feel. For a band that formed in '92, this is quite a run - and Lemonade is the perfect sound and feel for any time of day. Front porch lounging... driving... beachfires...

I had the chance of seeing them twice on the Lemonade tour in central coast CA - I'll catch them whenever I can. Bonus album of G Love (Garrett Dutton) is now available with the raw, first recordings before Special Sauce was even in the picture. Listen to that, then listen to this, and buy yourself the spectrum in the middle. These guys are just too damned fun not to have in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars fresh squeezed and soulful Aug. 1 2006
By Nick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I really liked what G did on his previous release, "The Hustle" and he manages to top it with "Lemonade". Total run time is something like 57 minutes so you really get your money's worth and it never gets boring. From slow and solemn numbers like "Breakin' Up", to the bluesy "Still Hangin' Around" and the ever-grooving "Holla!" the songs are very diverse and never predictable but they still keep the classic G. Love vibe that we all know and love. I really liked all the guest musicians (including Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Blackalicious and of course, Special Sauce) on this record because it keeps the sound fresh and different.

I would highly reccomend picking this album up. Its perfect for summertime chillin, whether you're taking a ride with the windows down on a hot summer day or maxin' on the porch on a quiet summer's eve. It's the way to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sit with a glass and try it out... Aug. 4 2006
By A. Westley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This cd touches on every surface of music complimenting its smooth jazz tones with a finish of hip-hop. While not a main stream artist G. Love has been around for awhile and continues to bring that style he does so well.

The single "Hot Cookin'" is a stand out on the cd and likens to such artists as Lenny Kravits and his own lable mate Jack Johnson, who also makes a guest spot on the track "Rainbow" adding more diversity to the album.

If you enjoy smooth hip-hop style lyrics with mellow jazz funk beats your going to be in heaven with this cd and obviously fans know what he brings to the table, so to all the fans, this is a must buy.

Best G. Love cd yet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another stellar album with top notch guests Aug. 18 2006
By K. Cagle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I read through the reviews posted here and was surprised to see no one mentioned the fact that the most standout track on the album has to be Banger with guests Blackalicious and Lateef. I agree it has to be the most bangin' track on the album and has some of the best flowing prose I've heard in a while. What bothers me about the song is I can't quite figure out if he's making an allegory or if he is simply a junkie that always loses the battle. If so, thats sad.

BTW, G Love is a must see in concert. Its sad to see someone like Jack Johnson get so much more press when it was G that put him on the map to begin with. G will blow you away in concert if you enjoy what you hear in his albums, while Jack's concerts are mediocre at best. The last time I saw G, he solo'd with a vocoder part-way through the set and it was phenomenal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally!!!!! Dec 27 2006
By Mark L - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Been waiting long time for this...knew G. had it in him...became less interested with each album since the debut and sorta gave up on on him after Electric Mile (Except for the incredible Sara's Song, that album just never did it for me)...bought this on impulse...In my opinion, Lemonade contains elements of what put him on the map (the debut)...but incorporates his growth/experience over the years...e.g. Philadephonic, Yeah, etc. Excellent use of guests too...and Jasper's in fine form. Maybe I'll go back and get Hustle now.
