Product Description

Product Description

G. Love and Special Sauce's Superhero Brother is another entry in a career that now spans 15 years. It's been a long, successful run for the Philadelphia native and self-described 'Hip-Hop Blues artist,' whose self titled 1994 Okeh/Epic Records debut was certified Gold on the strength of the MTV hit, 'Cold Beverage' and a non-stop performing ethic that still has them playing more than 150 shows a year. Superhero Brother combines both political and party songs. The album is a reflection of the band's eclectic recipe for its Special Sauce, from tasty, post-Hip-Hop Beatles-influenced blues-rock 'Communicatio', spicy tropical island rhythms over an Archie Bell and the Drells 'Tighten U' groove 'City Livin'' and well-seasoned Chambers Brothers-style funk-rock crossed with Cream's 'I Feel Free' ('What We Need') to sweet, blue-eyed Philly soul 'Crumble'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great New Sound June 26 2008
By Hugh M. Willett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In opposition to the previous reviewer, I thought this was a great album. With the keys added the whole band has gained a rock structure that they just couldn't tout as well before. The opening track is a clever meld of genre's, one of G. Love's old tricks and City Livin will get stuck in your head in a matter of minutes. I must say i did not like Wiggle like a Worm, it didn't really fit into the rest of the album. P,L&H sounds just like a good old Stones song. Georgia Brown and Crumble are my other two favorites on the album, the former being a twist on the common blues progression with some nice vocals by G. Love and the latter has some great piano playing and is a great twist on a gospel like groove. What G. Love has shown recently, if he has a lack of talent in amazing lyrics, is he has a great sense for production, the harmonica is also improved on this album and I'll be damned if you don't like it. G. Love knows he isn't out to save the world, he just wants to bring everyone a little fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great new album for G Love May 12 2013

Some tracks are fast some are too slow. Georgia Brown is the best track on the album. Who's Got the Weed is too slow for me although an enjoyable track.
5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Love G!! Dec 7 2012

If you're into blues, hip hop and little funk and just a touch of jazz, you'll love G. He is so much fun in concert, he just holds you in the palm of his hand.
4.0 out of 5 stars my first G Love CD June 16 2010
By Bigwig Y - Published on Amazon.com

I did not know much about him other than he is a friend of Jack Johnson but purchased this CD after listening to the preview songs. I felt this sound is close to older Beck's songs. Fun songs to listen to and I like it a lot.
