Uncle Jam Records
|Uncle Jam Records|

|Country of origin||US|
Uncle Jam Records debuted in 1980 with the release of Sweat Band, the self-titled debut of that band, and Wynne Jammin' by Philippé Wynne, the former lead singer for the Spinners. Other acts that were signed to the label included singer Jessica Cleaves, Trey Lewd (Clinton's son Tracey Lewis), Sterling Silver Starship, and Gary Fabulous and the Black Slack.
The Many Facets of Roger by Roger Troutman, front man for the band Zapp, was originally intended for release on the Uncle Jam label, but the master recordings of the album were sold to Warner Bros. Records, which released the album in September 1981. This action led to the dissolution of the professional relationship between Troutman and Clinton, and contributed to Clinton severing his ties with Warner Bros.
