Redbone

Come and Get Your Love

Composed by Lolly Vegas

Song Review by

Redbone has always been most notable as the first and perhaps last band of Native Americans to hit Top Five; they did it with the undeniably groovy "Come and Get Your Love" in 1974. The group had some interesting beginnings: Brothers Pat and Lolly Vegas were known as L.A. session cats and backup musicians; when they hooked up with guitarist Anthony Bellamy and drummer Peter De Poe, Redbone was born in 1968. Though the band would shift direction throughout its career, veering from swamp boogie to traditional Native American sounds, "Come and Get Your Love" was, plain and simple, a pop song, if you call simple mixing a thick bass line, the unique sound of a Coral electric sitar, and a mini orchestra with a "hey-ya" chant.
