Released in 1979, Kenny Rogers’ The Gambler was a pop crossover success, topping Billboard’s Country Albums chart at #1 and reaching #12 on the Billboard 200. The album’s smash hit ballad, She Believes In Me, topped Billboard’s Country and Adult Contemporary Singles charts and peaked at #5 on the Hot 100. The album’s title track won two GRAMMY Awards: Best Country Vocal Performance, Male and Best Country Song. The album is five-times Platinum-certified by the RIAA with U.S. sales totaling more than five million copies.

“This latest outing, which shares the title of Rogers’ best selling single, finds the artist in top form. Alternating between pensive ballads and lively upbeat numbers, Rogers has found his niche in country music and proceeds to give it full benefit of his smooth sensitive stylings. Distinctive arrangements with piano, percussion and acoustic guitar combined with cameo backup touches by special guests such as Mickey Newbury, Bill Medley and Tony Joe White give this album a definite pop-flavored appeal. This is one of Rogers’ finest LPs to date and a definite crossover contender. Best cuts: “The Gambler,” “I Wish That I Could Hurt That Way Again,” “King Of Oak Street,” “San Francisco Mabel Joy,” “Making Music For Money.” (Billboard, 1978)

“Master of the story song, this crossover country singer brought a new pop-oriented audience to the genre, thanks in good part to this collection’s title track, one of the most classic and well-known songs of its time. If occasionally too corny, he still brings tears to your eyes and proves himself a remarkable raconteur – few wind up folding, in fact, as everyone knows this album is one to hold.” (Zagat Survey Music Guide – 1,000 Top Albums of All Time)

The album has been mastered for by Ron McMaster at Capitol Mastering.Kenny Rogers took a bit of a chance in releasing this loosly 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
