“Come and Get Your Love”is a 1974 hit single by the Native American rock band Redbone. The song was written by band member Lolly Vegas and produced by Lolly and his brother Pat Vegas, who was also a band member. It was originally featured on Redbone’s album, Wovoka; later the song appeared on many “greatest hits” albums released by the band, as well as on numerous compilation albums of the 1970s.
The song peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in April 1974. It spent 18 weeks in the Top 40 and landed as the 4th most popular song on the Hot 100 for 1974. The single was certified gold by the RIAA on April 22, 1974, which indicates that it had sold over half a million copies in the United States.
The song is Redbone’s highest charting single and one of two Top 40 hits by the band (an earlier recording, “The Witch Queen of New Orleans”, peaked at number 21 in 1972).
“Come and Get Your Love” also exists in a longer version, with an introductory slow part, plus a longer repeated coda. However, most radio vstations rarely play it on the air.

What a twist that is! I am glad you are loving it. POW wowinglove!
I’m a newer fan of Redbone but I am definitely a forever fan now, I’ve dived into all of their albums and honestly, they have so many amazing songs! They also wrote music for many other famous artists as well. Check out the song “Only You and Rock and Roll” where all of the lead singers sing a verse and they reference a few other hit songs in the lyrics which is pretty cool. The fact that they wrote a power anthem “We Were All Wounded at Wounded Knee” is extremely admirable, they had to release it in Europe since it wouldn’t be played here in the US. They wrote and performed beautiful music and they were all very easy on the eyes! Thank you for sharing!
