Overview

A Year and a Night with G. Love and Special Sauce is far more of a tour documentary than a concert feature, but it's really about the relationship between the three bandmembers that have been together for more than 13 years (this 2006 tour was the first with keyboard player Mark Boyce). It's actually pretty revelatory because it quickly becomes apparent that despite the fact that they've been a band for well over a decade, they aren't really friends. In fact, they don't even really appear to like each other much at all. But somehow when they're playing or performing, the music takes over and they're able to function together as a music making machine that basically stops working when the music stops. It's this tension that forms the heart of the film and it's pretty fascinating. Of course, most will be drawn to this set hoping for some live G. Love & Special Sauce footage and there are a number of full or nearly full performances throughout the film. They were filmed at the end of the tour in their hometown of Philly, and you can really feel the energy. Even better, as a bonus, all these songs and then some are included in full performance from the same shows (with a nice, professional multi-camera shoot). There's even an additional audio CD (with three tracks exclusive to the CD) documenting the same shows. Lots of fans think that live G. Love is the best G. Love. This one's for them.
