"Sadie (She Smokes)" by Joe Bataan - Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Joe Bataan and The Mestizo Band released their LP "Rap-O-Clap-O" in 1980. A time when disco music was shifting to a funkier edge. "Sadie (She Smokes)" is one of the more successful singles from the project. It features Jocelyn Brown on lead vocals and a few familiar vocal riffs.
I have taken the 1953 film "Miss Sadie Thompson" starring Rita Hayworth - a film that was produced during the "production code" period - so the character of Sadie Thompson was looked at as lewd and filthy by censorship boards and religious groups. Today, it bears a small resemblance to any. It just proves their lack of human understanding and righteousness.
Rita Hayworth is the vehicle of the film and my focus on this Disco Video Mix - the film was directed by Curtis Bernhardt.
