Born in Philadelphia, PA, G. Love and his band, Special Sauce, broke out in 1994 with their Gold-selling self-titled debut, which earned widespread critical acclaim for its bold vision and adventurous production. G. Love's lyrics are both personal and political here, artfully balancing his appreciation for the simple joys in life with his
obligation to speak out for justice and equality, and his performances are suitably riotous and rousing to match, with infectious call-and-response hooks and funky sing-along choruses at every turn.
