Gamble Album Discography
By Patrice Eyries, Dave Edwards and Mike Callahan
Last update: November 24, 2003

Before the Philadelphia International label was founded in 1971, Gamble and Huff had already tried their hands setting up record labels. The Excel and Gamble labels were started in 1967 (but only the latter released albums), with such artists as the Intruders (four albums between 1967 and 1969), Billy Paul (the classic Feelin' Good At The Cadillac Club later re-released on Philadelphia International) and the first album by the Jaggerz, a Pittsburgh rock band led by guitarist-singer-songwriter Dominic Ierace (aka Donnie Iris). Although the 1969 album by the Jaggerz was not paricularly successful, the group shifted to the Kama Sutra label and hit the charts in 1970 with "The Rapper." In 1970 the original Gamble label was put on hold, to be resurrected in 1973 as a Philadelphia International subsidiary.

The first Gamble label is black with "GAMBLE" written in white lettering and underlined by curved coloured stripes at the top of the label. The following text is written in the same white lettering on the right side of the label "GAMBLE RECORDS, INC. 1650 BROADWAY NEW YORK, N.Y." Only the first release was issued both in mono and stereo. All other releases were stereo only.

After Gamble and Huff made a deal with CBS to start the Philadelphia International label, CBS distributed a short-lived revitalization of the gamble label. The CBS-distributed Gamble label was silver with black print, with a brown stylized "G" logo at the top of the label. Promotional copies had the same label, but had a sticker on the label indicating it was a promotional copy and was not for sale.
