180 Gram Vinyl! One of His Most Popular Albums!

The 1978 studio album by Kenny Rogers, one of his most popular, established Rogers' status as one of the most successful artists of the '70s and '80s. The album reached many markets around the world, making him internationally recognizable as The Gambler.

The title track was actually written, and first recorded, by Don Schlitz. I has also been covered by several other artists. Kenny Rogers' adaptation of the tale was the version to top the country charts and win a Grammy for Song of the Year.

The album also contains "She Believes In Me" which became one of the biggest crossover hits in the spring of 1979, reaching number one on the Billboard Country Singles chart.

"Kenny Rogers took a bit of a chance in releasing this loosely based concept album at the time, but boy, did it pay off! Sales for the album went through the roof, as the title track and "She Believes In Me" became pop crossover hits, with the latter reaching the pop Top 10. Later, "The Gambler" was turned into a string of made-for-television movies." - James Chrispell,
