A compilation or 2 on 1?

"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!"
THE OVERLOOKED ROCK-SOUL BAND

"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!"
Underrated Great music

"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."
