One of the best CDs I brought recently is G. Love's "Lemonade."
Released Aug. 1, 2006, it's a collection of really nice tunes with a host of guest musicians including Ben Harper, Marc Broussard, Jack Johnson (the CD is on Johnson's Brushfire Records), Tristan Prettyman, Blackalicious.
Philly-based hip/hop bluesman Garrett "G. Love" Dutton (who one reviewer calls "one of the premier purveyors of a funky fusion of sparkling acoustic pop, white-boy rap, and ragged blues" .. whew, whatever) has one nice CD. I'll think I'll be listening to it for quite awhile.
Here's the track list:
2. Ain't That Right
3. Hot Cookin'
4. Can't Go Back to Jersey
5. Missing My Baby
