1973 An Angel In A Red Polka Dot Dress





I was exited; my friend Marcia was taking me to see the new Wattstax movie in Leicester Square. The main attraction was Rufus Thomas performing “The Funky Chicken”; it would be my first time seeing the various the American soul artists, which I had been listening to, in action. The movie was great, the music funky and the dancing mesmerising; then there she was, the girl in the red polka dot dress dancing for 35 glorious seconds, an angel with smooth black thighs, dress so short that you momentarily glimpsed her white panties, but most of all she danced like a funky dream. I have loved the girl in the red polka dot dress ever since that moment.

  1. That’s my Grandma’s friend! The woman in the red and white polkadot dress’s name is Robberta. She’s an Inglewood native. Her and my Grandma went to the concert together. My Grandma doesn’t talk much with her anymore though. The dancing goddess is now in a Los Angeles aging-home. I don’t know much about her now, but I bet she’s still moving just as good!!!!
