Ethel Merman Disco Album

I've got rhythm... like no rhythm you've heard before.

Ethel Merman, 70's disco diva? It's true -- or at least, they gave it a shot with this surreal 1979 release on A&M records. With Cher and Streisand having blazed the trail, it was only a matter of time before Merman was called upon to belt out disco versions of her classic tunes.

Thank god disco died when it did... who knows how far it would have spread had it lasted?

Update: Saints preserve us the Ethel Merman Disco Album is now available on CD! Why scour thrift store record bins for the next six years when you can just click and buy online? It's just the thing for your next swinging dance party!

Yeah, I about dropped a load in my pants when i say this, i found the album at my local salvation army, it's like it was never played before the paper label was covering the hole for the player, when i played the record i thought i was in heaven, oh my, on the back of the album it says in gold lettering "loaned for promotion only, not for sale, ownership and rights reserved", does that mean i got the album before it went on sale? does anyone know the value of it? if so let me know, gota go, my favorite song is on now and i just can't resist dancing to it (04-09-2003)

Baddy (baddy@martini-time.com) says:
You can buy this CD from Medium Rare records in San Francisco. It's only a couple of blocks from my house. I do believe they'll ship CDs and records too. They specialize in all the old divas (Peggy Lee, Eartha Kitt, Keely Smith, etc.) and have a fantastic collection of old off the wall stuff like this re-released on CD too.

Uncle Ralph (FoodDudeTwo@aol.com) says:
This album was produced by Paul Jabara as a result of him being presented with the Acadamy Award for best song (Last Dance from Thank God it's Friday) by Ethel Merman. Paul Jabara had huge successes for writing disco songs for Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand, Donna Summer and many others! He was in the origional cast of Hair and was a great friend of mine.
