Sadie Townsend is known by all as the Ice Princess and she’s worked hard to earn her reputation. Her father, a now-incarcerated drug lord, has kept her under his thumb her whole life and she’s learned enough from living in his world to give everyone the cold shoulder. But one inebriated night, she shows the Real Sadie to the undercover agent she knows is investigating her father, the handsome Hector Chavez, and he knows he’ll stop at nothing to have her.
Hector makes one (huge) mistake; he waits for Sadie to come to him. Tragedy strikes and Sadie’s got a choice: She can retreat behind her ice fortress or she can embrace the Rock Chick/Hot Bunch world. Guided by Hector, the Rock Chicks, the Hot Bunch, and her new gay roommates, Buddy and Ralphie, Sadie negotiates a life out from under her father’s thumb, a life that includes poison, arson, and learning how to make s’mores.
I recorded this some years ago. "Little Sadie" is a 20th-century American folk ballad. One of the many murder ballads. The young man kills his girlfriend without any apparent reason, and of course end up in jail in "ball and chain". Just like most other murder ballads. In the end they often complain that "nobody would go my bail".
But often we are not told why he does it. No apparent motif.
The list of people who have recorded it goes on and on for miles. From Clarence Ashley to Riley Puckett, Doc Watson, Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash, Norman Blake, Jerry Garcia, Tony Rice and on and on it goes. Most of them are pretty good. I am not in that league, but I do my best.
