Love Me Some RedBone!


Redbone – Come And Get Your Love – The Midnight Special 1974


I love their song “Come And Get Your Love” that topped the charts back in the 70’s and I adore this above music video and how it starts out with the Indian garb and dance performance which is so amazing to see.

With all the recent uproar regarding “Standing Rock” lately and the fight against the construction of the Dakota access pipeline, started me to thinking more deeply and caring even more about Native American people and their plight.

Back in 1973, the song “We Were All Wounded at Wounded Knee”, brought a lot of attention to the massacre by the 7th Cavalry Regiment of the Lakota Sioux Indians in 1890. The song was number one in the charts in various areas like in the Netherlands but didn’t do well in the United States because of it being such a controversial and touchy subject.

So Pat and Candido “Lolly” Vasquez-Vegas moved to Los Angeles California in 1969 and formed this amazing Native American Rock group.

Their groups name RedBone is a Cajun term for a mixed race person.

I like to call my self a happy soul, a daydreamer and have a heart of a gypsy. Love to use my imagination. And trying out new things. Life can be so wonderful and enjoyable when I am being positive and releasing.
