“Disco Lady” is a 1976 single for Crawfordsville native Johnnie Taylor that went on to become his biggest hit. The single was Taylor’s first for Columbia Records, where Taylor signed after his long-time label, Stax Records, went bankrupt. It spent four weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and six weeks on the Billboard R&B chart in the U.S. It was also the first single to be certified platinum by the RIAA; ultimately it sold over 2.5 million copies. Billboard ranked it as the No. 3 song for 1976.
The song was produced by Taylor’s long-time producer, Don Davis. Among the guests on the song were four members of Parliament-Funkadelic: bassist Bootsy Collins, keyboardist Bernie Worrell, guitarist Glenn Goins, and drummer Jerome Brailey.
