The Kenny Rogers Singles Album is a compilation album by Kenny Rogers.

Overview[edit]

This album was issued in the UK by United Artists Records in 1979 and was the second Kenny Rogers album to reach the pop UK Albums Chart Top 20 [1]. It featured every one of his singles to make the UK Pop Top 75 to that point. It is fairly similar to 1977's Ten Years Of Gold album issued in the USA, but it featured four more songs that were hits in 1978, such as "The Gambler" and "She Believes In Me".

In Australia, the album was issued with the same track listing and album art and was known as The Best of Kenny Rogers.
