Redbone was always a band of its own. Some typical traces to the native american music mixed with quite funky playing. This collection is no exception. However, what we've got here is in fact their second album "Potlatch" and their third album "Message From A Drum" complete, one after the other! Plus two singles As & Bs to finish off the package. For people looking for just THOSE TWO albums on CD, then this is a must. As a compilation it's time span is way too short. It's got good information on the cover and soundwise it's a good release. NOTE: The song "Light As A Feather" has been cut short by approx. 10-12 seconds at the beginning. Nothing to be upset about, but still pretty unneccesary. For Redbone fans; GO GET IT!

REDBONE-GOLDEN CLASSICS: Retro record label COLLECTABLES has done a bang-up job encapsulating the bloozey roots rock music of Native American band REDBONE, gathering up two of their best 70s albums MESSAGE FROM A DRUM & POTLATCH, plus assorted singles on one disc. REDBONE's rich, earthy sound was slathered in searing soul power, syncopated tribal rhythms, hook-laden guitar licks and vocal harmonies supplied by blood brothers/former session musicians PAT & LOLLY VEGAS. The swamp-stompin' jam MAGGIE, voo-doo chant WITCH QUEEN OF NEW ORLEANS, and scintillating RNB/pop smash COME & GET YOUR LOVE (even SOUL TRAIN played that one) are merely the best known tracks here; steaming chunk of funk JUDGEMENT DAY and the percolating raunch of DRINKIN' AND BLO are not to be missed. The definitive double vinyl collection COME & GET YOUR REDBONE may never make it to CD, but GOLDEN CLASSICS, which is essentially a greatest hits platter, goes a long way towards preserving REDBONE's criminally underrated "boogie brothers" legacy.

RATING: FIVE HEADDRESSES

Other than 'Come & Get Your Love', and a very small amount of airplay for 'Maggie' and 'Witch Queen of New Orleans', Redbone are virtually unknown to most; and especially those under 40 years of age. Thank goodness some of their music has been put to CD. Song after song, the music has great lyrics and dynamic rhythms whether slow or fast. The music is timeless.

I SPENT A GREAT DEAL OF MY JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL TIME LISTENING TO REDBONE. I WAS VERY HAPPY FOR THEM THAT THEY SCORED A BIG HIT WITH COME AND GET YOUR LOVE. BUT FOR THE UNINITIATED, THIS IS A GENEROUS OFFERING OF THE GROUP, FILLED WITH CLASSIC SONGS FROM MESSAGE FROM A DRUM AND WOVOKA. THIS BAND HAD SO MUCH SOUL AND TALENT, IT'S A SHAME THEY DIDN'T GET MORE RECOGNITION THAT THEY GOT. THE LEAD SINGER...LOLLY VEGAS, SOUNDS A LOT LIKE MARVIN GAYE. ROCK ON, REDBONE!

The first half is "Potlatch," and the second half is "Message from a Drum," although the collection throws two tracks from "Wovoka" on for good measure. Well, I have some problems with the package. First, the second song from "Potlatch," "Light as a Feather," is cut. However, I've heard about this problem in the past with other collections by this band. Why is that happening? I have the original LP, and I was expecting to hear the layered intro to the song, but it cuts in during the intro and sounds very awkward. Next, neither "Come and Get Your Love," nor "Wovoka" were on either of those albums, so why are they here? This is not a "greatest hits" collection. If you're simply seeking their most popular tunes, you'd be better served by an actual hits collection and not something that includes some of these tracks. None of these tracks are bad at all; as a matter of fact, this is one of my favorite bands of all time, and Lolly Vegas was an amazing guitarist. However, the schizophrenic nature of the CD forces me to skip it sometimes. One thing: I'd say that if the material had been remastered beyond this point, it would sound even better; it sounds good here-much better than the vinyl, but whoever is responsible for this can do better and give us a more updated sound (the mastering sounds 90's to me). Lastly, there is no actual information about the band inside, so the title "Golden Classics" is misleading (it makes it sound like a "hits" collection, when it is actually a reissue of one in-print CD and one long gone LP). I'd like to hear, finally, "Already Here," which is another long-gone LP that has never made its way to CD. Why didn't they pair "Message" with "Already Here," since both are out of print? I can get "Potlatch" anywhere.

My brother always enjoyed "Come and Get Your Love" back in '73 when it came out. But I had no idea about the other great music they made, until Rollye James started playing it on her (satellite / internet) radio program. Then I was instantly hooked! This is a wonderful introduction to this tragically overlooked band. There are only a few small criticisms of this CD. A few of the tunes ("Maxsplivitz" and "Perico") are only a few seconds long, which is a bit strange. Also the more unfamiliar songs (like "Drinkin' and Blo") lean toward the "bloozier" side of the band. The real gem here is "The Sun Never Shines Upon the Lonely" which almost sounds like a forgotten doo-wop classic by the Four Seasons! Also consider that Pat and Lolly Vegas (the "battery" of the group) were once part of the Shindogs on TV's "Shindig!" show! (Check out their YouTube videos). They were also in a spy spoof film called 'The Nasty Rabbit.' Once you get this CD, go back and buy their previous album releases. Great music, fun vibrations and an uplifting philosophy -- just what we need in these troubled times!
