"... now iconic ..."
- Rolling Stone

The Grammy-winning title track of this 1978 album changed the course of Kenny Rogers's career, propelled to heights never imagined: all-star status in both country and pop genres and a burgeoning sideline as an actor. With the help of another huge hit, the top five single She Believes In Me, The Gambler has since gone on to sell over 35 million copies.

"(The Gambler) was a career-building song. Don Schlitz wrote it and what's funny is that he's never been a gambler. In fact, the song's not about gambling; it's a metaphor for life and picking yourself up. He just happened to hear that line when he was walking down the street one day and it stuck with him. It was brilliant."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
