She had a voice that either made people grin or cringe, a hugely successful name and was called "The First Lady of the musical comedy stage", but Ethel Merman went from being a beloved and appreciated star of stage and screen to a punchline, and it’s sad to say that one particular album played a major role in her fall from grace.
The project which changed the way people thought about Ethel Merman as an entertainer is the uniquely horrible and utterly ridiculous album called The Ethel Merman Disco Album, and it’s every bit as bad as it sounds.
Listen, if you dare, to a 71-year-old belter of standards and Broadway tunes singing over a cheesy disco track, and try not to tap your foot along to the beat!
