220px-Wovoka_(album)_cover#18 – Redbone – “Come and Get Your Love” – (1973)

“Come and Get Your Love” was the biggest hit and signature song of Redbone, a band from L.A. whose members were of either Native American or Mexican descent. This song peaked at #5 on the Hot 100 in 1974 (even though the album came out at the end of 1973). My favorite story about this band is that there was a group touring under the name “Redbone” actually booking shows and performing at small venues that wasn’t this band at all. But because no one really knew what they looked like, they were able to get away with it.
