“Black Widow Woman” by Afro-Cuban Band – Disco Video Mix by
Afro-Cuban Band is a band formed by
Michael Zager – their first hit was a disco cover of Abaco Dream’s
“Life and Death in G&A” from 1975. Following a successful follow up
project titled “SpanDisco” in 1977 the group released a finale album
in 1978 titled “Rhythm Of Life”.
“Black Widow Woman” is track from “Rhythm Of
Life” and was also released as a 12” disco single. The mix of Latin
and disco elements along with Zager's fantastic production give this
slick and dark piece a nice funky and cha-cha feel.
taken the 1948 MGM musical, “The Kissing Bandit” starring Frank
Sinatra, Kathryn Grayson, Ricardo Montalban and Cyd Charisse and used
some of the wonderful dance sequences as a ploy for this tale of a
dark and mysterious woman. It works as the Technicolor douses the
screen over and over after each kick and spin.
