Redbone is a Native American rock band band originating in the 1970s with brothers Pat and Lolly Vegas. They reached the Top 5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart with Come and Get Your Love. Redbone is known as the first Native American rock/Cajun group to have a No. 1 single internationally

The word redbone is a Cajun term for a mixed-race person, which the band adopted to signify their mixed ancestry.The Vasquez-Vegas brothers were of Yaqui, Shoshone and Mexican heritage.  The band often alluded to Cajun and New Orleans  culture in their lyrics and performing style. The brothers began by performing and recording surf music as the Vegas Brothers. Their agent told them that the world was not ready to embrace a duo of Mexican musicians playing surfing music so they changed to Crazy Cajun Cakewalk Band. Pat and Lolly performed throughout the 1960's at venues on the Las Vegas Strip.  

This 45 rpm record is a radio station copy, and because it saw some use the record sounds good but does not look real good.
