G. Love & Special Sauce – Yeah, It’s That Easy

A Taranna December find…


This one took me back, as I used to own it back in the day. I knew every track, and was thrilled to be reminded that the title track used bits of Femi Kuti’s No Agreement (Part 2) and that Dr. John makes an appearance. Y’all know the music of G. Love, his sound, his easy brilliance, and the song Stepping Stones, found here, was probably an entry point for most of us. Superb record. 

G. Love – Fixin’ To Die

Toasty Taranna #22: Sonic Boom #6: G. Love – Fixin’ To Die

G. Love’s 3rd solo record, 9th album overall if you count the Special Sauce records too (I do). Out on Brushfire Records (Jack Johnson’s label) in 2011, with cooperation from the Avett Brothers, this is a sweet, sweet set. Covers of Bukka White, Blind Willie McTell, Lou Reed and Paul Simon, as well as superb original tracks, make this a fantastic listen. It’s blues, it’s country, it’s all friggin’ gorgeous. It’s clean and clear and I could listen to it all day.
