I bought the LP back in the 70's when it first came out. I heard "Come and get your love" on the radio and had to have the record. Now, 31 years later, I own the CD and it's still the same great music. Sorry to hear of the band members illness. I wish you recovery to make more of this great music.

I suppose the term "Indian electric" was never coined and I in no way wish to sound condescendng if I use this term here or use it any disrespectable sense for this wondrous group or the individual members who call theselves Redbone.

I was hooked on this band the moment my AM car radio played and I first heard "The Witch Queen" when I hopelessly lost at 2:am in the Boyle Heights section of East LA on a spooky night desperately looking for a freeway onramp to find my way out.

1974's "Come and Get your Love" was another such song that once I heard it I just HAD had to immediately have that record in my hands!

When I hear now hear these two tunes 30 plus years latter I'm equally if not even more impressed! In fact on every song on this L.P. I can hear I very a strong native American Indian influence .

FABULOUS STUFF!!! I strongly feel that Redbone NEVER got the proper credit they so deserved! Excellent musicians, excellent guitar playing, excellent singing and excellent energy!

Truly a unique sound and if you indulge me here, excellent "Indian electric!"

This L.P. is a MUST BUY for anyone who so enjoyed these tunes in the 1970's and for anyone today that enjoys and loves great music! ... I l love you guys known as "Redbone!"

Redbone is perhaps remembered by the public as a Native American band that only had one hit with "Come and Get Your Love". Most people probably don't even remember what they looked like since their hit was 1974, before the age of video (although I believe they did appear on "The Midnight Special"). So why would they garner an "Essential" collection? The "Essential" series is not as low as the "Super Hits" that and even ranks better than the "20th Century" sets (it goes without saying that I collect a lot music). Anyway, the "Essential" collection is no doubt yet another means for labels (Sony and all the labels that fall in it, in this case Epic) to cash in by making a set that might appeal only to causal fans. In many cases, they run two discs (with such big hitters ranging from Simon & Garfunkel to Micheal Jackson). They also often contain good artwork and notes. But enough about the series. Again, why did Redbone get such a release?

The core of Redbone are Lolly and Pat Vegas, the brothers and primary songwriters (often writing separately but sometimes collaborating). The two talent of these two men of Native American and Mexican descent shines through on the variety of music here. "Come Get Your Love" might have been over used in commercials (which often cover the song using session singers) but the actual Redbone song is kick butt combo of rock, funk and pop. Great catchy lyrics, excellent singing and stellar musicianship (the bass, the guitar, the drums and percussion...wow!). The version on here is a bit of bonus as it contains on intro never heard on the radio with nearly accapella singing with minimal instruments in the back before the the drums start the track off. That song is just one of the great tracks, though.

For anyone who is looking to get themselves a greatest hits album of the Native-American rock group Redbone "The Essential Redbone" is the album for you. This CD has I believe the best collection of their best songs for a greatest hits album out there. It covers songs from their first six albums that were released. Of course their three big hit songs, "Witch Queen Of New Orleans", "Maggie" and their mega-hit "Come And Get Your Love" are on here. I have said in the past on reviews I have written on their individual albums that Redbone is one of the most overlooked rock groups and that is just sad. Redbone had their own look and sound that made them stand out from so many of the other rock groups of the day. That is why they have always been one of my all time favorite groups even to this day and I never tire listening to their music. That is also why I always sing their praises in hope that someone out there might be inspired to learn more about this unique group and give them a listen.

If I have any complaints about this album it would be the omission of two of their best songs that while not hit songs still represent some of their best work. The first one is "Suzie Girl" from their "Beaded Dreams Through Turquiose Eyes" album. Possibly because "Beaded Dreams" didn't do that well on the charts the song was left off but if that is so that is a shame since it really is a nice song. The other song that is not on this disc is the controversial "We Were All Wounded At Wounded Knee". One of Redbone's most important songs but due to the subject matter of the song about the massacre in 1890 by the 7th calvery at Wounded Knee of Native-Americans radio stations across the U.S. would not play the single.
