1970 - Redbone

The first Redbone album is a double one !

The first Redbone album is musically completely accomplished. I discovered the band through this double album in the late seventies.
Full of ancient rythmes, stabbing melodies and these funky guitare solos coming out of nowhere, Redbone whose on top of their talent from their beginning. Listen to Crazy Cajun or Danse Calinda to have perfect examples of their first style. In my opinion this may be the album that will stay the most intemporal because of it's very "roots" feelings.
