WATCH: ‘Come and Get Your Love’ by Redbone on The Midnight Special LIVE – 1974

How many rock ‘n’ roll songs performed LIVE on national television start with a minute-long traditional Native American dance?  Probably not very many, which is why this 1974 video of the band Redbone performing their 1974 smash ‘Come and Get Your Love’ on The Midnight Special is so cool. Many fans didn’t know that the band was actually made up entirely of Native Americans, but Redbone clearly wanted to put their heritage on display when they got their chance.

Even without that great intro, ‘Come and Get Your Love’ was one of the more upbeat, positive songs of that era, with an infectious beat and distinctive guitar intro.
