Redbone - Already Here (1972 us, marvelous soulful native folkish swamp rock, 2011 bonus tracks edition)



Redbone is a rock band created in 1969. The band was formed in Los Angeles, California by the brothers Pat and Lolly Vegas, two Native Americans, in 1968. Two other native americans joined them, Tony Bellamy on rythm guitar and Pete DePoe on drums. They produced a few hits, among which the single Maggy, The Witch Queen of New Orleans and Come and Get Your Love who recently (2014) made it's comeback in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. 

The fourth "Redbone" album "Already Here" released in 1972, is the perfect continuation of the third one. And a great Redbone one. Some wonderful songs, they stay in mind and live within you, giving you energy and hapiness.
