I can't believe this album got a negative review. Neither can I believe G. Love is getting negative press in other reviews...
This is what this album has to offer: it's got its own unique, creative sound - as every G. Love album - and it will grow on you like pleasure. I've had this album for several years, and I still get so down into it every time I hear it.
If you like artists from all walks of music because they create their own vein of music without fitting in an easy box ( e.g. B. Harper, Morcheeba, Sublime, M. Ndegeacelo, J. Buckley, GURU, Albert King, the Beatles and M. Davis), this will undoubtedly satisfy you. It took a few listening to grow on me, as I had other G. Love albums which sound a bit rawer.
Discovering G. Love is one of those rare times when you think: damn, I found an incredible artist with a new sound. A sound that's not just new, but simply feels so good you can't quite believe it. Perhaps playing everyday since childhood and growing up in a musical environment helped, but this is someone with immense raw talent.
The sound bites help, but are not sufficent to get a real feel for this sound. Hey G. Love, may you keep putting out this quality and variety for many years!

If you like to listen to popular music because it entertains you, rather than making some big artistic statement, then you will disregard all of the negative reviews of this disc and buy it. G. Love is one of a long line of white musicians that have strip-minined the blues for influences to produce a highly listenable bit of pop, al la early Elvis.
Unlike overly reverent preservationists like John Hammond Jr. and Eric Claption, G. Love's take on the blues is similar to the tongne-in-cheek mimicry of urban hipsters the John Spencer Blues Explosion. However, unlike the Blues Explosion' hybrid blaxploitation/trailer trash sound of discs like ACME and ORANGE, G. Love produces a sound that is softer, yet more beat driven, a sort of cocktail blues for the po-mo set.
I think that one of the charms of non-Southerners G. Love and John Spencer is that they are making the kinds of blues-influenced pop that Southern men used to make and seem unable to produce anymore.

Who the hell is Roni Sarig and what is his problem? G-love and Special Sauce are one of the few musical acts out there who don't pump out the same MTV garbage on a regualr basis.

I'm a great fan of G.Love and absolutely loved his first album, and I suppose therefore my dissapointment in this one was the bigger. This just feels like a tired attempt to copy his own brilliance, having forgotten what that brilliance consisted of. Uninspired is the word that comes to mind. Alright, not all tunes are boring. "Sweet Sugar Mama" is actually in old brilliant G.Love-style, "Kiss and Tell" and "Tommorow Night" are ok, but that's about it. If you're going to buy one of G.Love's albums, don't buy this one. I'm happy to say, though, that his latest - "Yeah, it's that easy" is as good as the first album, although different in style and not as innovative

The droll humor and wistful breeziness flaunted on G's first release is transformed into a more subdued, folk-oriented follow up album. After first listen, I didn't think much of this release, but it grew on me in time. The singles Sweet Sugar Mama and Kiss and Tell are equally enticing, but other tracks like the optimistic Leaving the City, the dreary Sometimes, and the brilliant, big band foray of Bye Bye Baby are the best songs, making up the foundation of the record. Although it's quite disparate from the band's other releases, Coast to Coast Motel is nearly paramount in quality to G's other releases, and it will definately start to rub off on you after a few listens.

Man, what's gotten into Roni Sarig's (the caustic reviewer) drawers? He puts down G. Love and John Hammond, Jr. in the same review?

Doesn't the sharecropper remark seem a bit...I dunno...'holier-than-thou' at best and racist at worst?

Don't know what happened to Roni, but G.Love is still recording great music. Ditto John Hammond.

Wassup? I am a G. Love & Special Sauce fan and I love everything by them. "Coast To Coast Motel" is hard for me to decribe though. It was recorded in New Orleans and has a real nice bluesy feel, similar to some songs in G. Love's first album. There are some songs like "Kiss and Tell" that have a nice feeling to them, but if you want my honest opinion... when I first bought the album when it was released, I found it kinda dry and not until recently have I grown to appreciate the tracks more. But, there is alot of talent here and a nice laid-back easy feeling. My recommendation is that if you are a new fan of G's, don't start with this CD, but give it a chance once you have tried his other stuff. Peace and One Love!
