Subject: I think you're mistaking her for Ethel Merman, who did (technically) release a disco album, but somewhat without her consent.

In reply to: A must for fans of bad music 's message, "Kate put out a Disco album in the 70's" on Friday, August 16, 02:27:51pm

Like many older stars, she was approached to do an album of her hits, but with a contemporary arrangement. She agreed, and went into the studio and recorded the vocal guides to a big band accompaniment, and the recording company said she'd done her part and sent her on her way. After all, she knew those songs by heart, considering they were her old standards. So she happily complies, records her vocals, and goes on with her life.

What she did not know, though, was that by "contemporary," the producers meant "disco." She was quite horrified a few months later when the album comes out; she hadn't agreed to a DISCO record, after all!. Of course, she can't really do anything about it; she'd agreed in the first place, and so instead of raising a stink, she took it in her good-humored stride--and made sure to read the fine print for every recording contract she agreed to after that!
