"The Ethel Merman Disco Album" is a 1979 album by American Broadway legend Ethel Merman. Over the years, the album became a camp classic [ [http://www.theatermania.com/content/news.cfm/story/2968 Fynsworth Alley to Hold Re-Release Party for The Ethel Merman Disco Album] ] and vinyl copies were highly sought out by collectors.

Merman recorded 14 songs for the album, although only seven were released on the finished record album. Each of the songs was recorded in only one take and arranged vocally the way she always recorded them.

In 2002, Fynsworth Alley Records acquired the rights to release the album on CD. The CD release contains one bonus track, a recording of "They Say Its Wonderful." There are no plans to release the other six tracks, as of yet.
