Buddah was formed in 1967 by Art Kass as an offshoot of Kama Sutra Records. Record executive Neil Bogart was brought in, as were producers Jeff Katz and Jerry Kasenetz; the result was the birth of Bubblegum Pop, via the Ohio Express, the Lemon Pipers, the 1910 Fruitgum Company, etc. Product from this era was issued on Pye International in Britain, the Buddah label as such only making its appearance in 1968. Buddah continued to prosper in the next decade: 1970 saw the arrival of singer / songwriter Melanie; and Gladys Knight and the Pips were signed from Motown in 1973 and became the label's most successful group. From 1974 Buddah concentrated on Black music; producer Norman Connors was responsible for a string of disco hits in the late '70s. The '80s saw a tailing-off of the label's success, however, and it seems to have expired in mid 1983. In Britain Buddah appeared in three incarnations. First on the scene was a black label, which, like the American one, misspelled 'Buddha' and featured a picture of Shiva; this was replaced by an injection-moulded one when manufacturer /distributor Polydor adapted that method of production for all its singles. When Buddah moved to Pye in 1974, a new, brown, label was introduced; this had the correct picture but it kept the wrong spelling. The injection-moulded labels credited to Pye require explaining - were they custom pressed by Phonogram?  Early Polydor Buddahs were numbered in the 201-000s; this was changed to a 2011-000 series in 1970 when that company adopted seven-figure catalogue numbers for all its products. Pye Buddahs had numbers in the BDS-400s.  The discography has lots of gaps; some of there are down to the fact that the numbers were used for releases overseas.
