Blog #361, G. LOVE & SPECIAL SAUCE

WARDEN TRACKS:  This weekend’s post involves music from a dude born & bred in Philadelphia, PA, USA.  He’s a very good friend of surf/skiffle superstar, JACK JOHNSON, and actually included Johnson’s “Rodeo Clowns” on his “Philadelphonic” record in 1999 before J.J. himself did; on 2003’s “On And On.”  This artist has also been featured on lots of other friend’s albums including a guest appearance on “Mellow Mood,” from the SLIGHTLY STOOPID album, “Everything You Need.”  Born Garret Dutton, his stage name is G. LOVE, and if you check out the above-mentioned tracks you can get a pretty good idea of what G. Love is all about.  From the fifth G. Love & Special Sauce album, “Electric Mile,” this is one of my favourites from them.  It might be one of the grooviest songs ever about really liking someone, time to put on “100 MAGIC RINGS.”
