Lady of the Night is the debut studio album by American singer Donna Summer. The album, which was produced by Pete Bellotte, was released on February 26, 1974 only in The Netherlands, and spawned the minor hit singles "The Hostage" and "Lady of the Night" in that country. The songs, written by the Moroder/Bellotte team, are mostly of the pop/rock/folk variety. The track Lady of the Night is popular in Germany, receiving air time on radio stations that feature classics of the sixties and seventies. Being formerly married to an Austrian, Donna Summers was a fluent German speaker and recorded a number of songs in that language.
"Full of Emptiness" was excised from all CD reissues, as the track was re-released on her next album, 1975's Love to Love You Baby.
