Redbone – Come and Get Your Love

Come and Get Your Love peaked at #5 in the Billboard 100. The song has recently gained a new following by being on the “Guardians of the Galaxy” soundtrack. The band had one other top 40 hit called The Witch Queen of New Orleans. Redbone was a Native American rock band from California.

From Songfacts.

Redbone, their name a nod to their heritage, was a Native American band from Coalinga, California led by the brothers Pat and Candido (“Lolly”) Vasquez. They were managed by Bumps Blackwell, who guided Little Richard and Sam Cooke to success. To avert discrimination, he convinced the brothers to use a different last name, so they became known as Pat and Lolly Vegas. Redbone earned an audience playing clubs on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles at the same time The Doors were on that scene.

A self-titled double album was their debut in 1970, introducing their funky rock rhythms and distinctive percussion, which they called the “King Kong Beat.” In 1972 they scored with “The Witch Queen Of New Orleans,” which reached #21 US and #2 UK, and in 1973 they released their most famous song, “Come And Get Your Love,” on their fifth album, Wovoka. The song was written by Lolly Vegas, who also sang lead on the track.

      1. Sorry, just reading this. I just rechecked and now Redbone is there! I know with youtube they sometimes have autoplay and will go on to something they randomly (at least to us it’s random) play another video. Maybe that’s what happened?
