Crna dama (Black Lady) is the second studio album by the Serbian rock/progressive rock band Smak, released in 1977.Written material was recorded in London at the Morgan Studios, and produced my Martin Levan. The Album featured the lyrics written by Mirko Glišić and music by Mihajlović, with the exception for Tegoba (Struggle), written by Petkovski, in which he presented his sympathies for jazz rock. The musical style ranged from the hard rock influenced title track, ballads Stvar ljubavi (A Matter of Love) and Plava pesma (A Blue Song), featuring the London Harmonium string quartet, folk rock Daire (Tambourine) and the progressive 'Alo, featuring Aranđelović's scat singing combined with Mihajlović's solo parts, and Domaći zadatak (Homework), featuring complex solos on drums, bass guitar and keyboards, which was directly dedicated to Bijelo Dugme. The album had a luxurious cover designed by Dragan S. Stefanović, featuring a new band logo which became one of the band's trademarks.The album went gold and received mostly positive critics, although Glišić's lyrics received mostly negative reactions, being described as banal and ineffective.
