History

While working at Kama Sutra Records, Art Kass was unhappy with the distribution deal with MGM Records and started Buddah Records around 1967. He brought in Neil Bogart, who was an MGM General Manager in the early sixties. Buddah's first single was "Yes, We Have No Bananas"/"The Audition" by the Mulberry Fruit Band (BDA 1) and its first album was "Safe As Milk" by Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band (BDM-1001/BDS-5001).

With "bubblegum pop" music coming to the forefront in the late 60's, Buddah became its main outlet. Through Super K Productions and producers Jerry Kasenetz and Jerry Katz, the 1910 Fruitgum Company, Ohio Express, and Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus continuously placed Buddah on the map. However, it was The Lemon Pipers who gave Buddah its first #1 hit with Green Tambourine in early 1968. Super K Productions was a record label specializing in Bubblegum_pop. ...

As the phase of bubblegum music faded by the turn of the decade, Buddah branched out in various musical directions, finding success in just about every outlet, from gospel to folk-country and especially R&B. The label even cashed in with a novelty break-in (ala Dickie Goodman) track, "Moonflight" by Vik Venus a/k/a/ disc jockey Jack Spector.

In 1978, Arista Records acquired Buddah and continued distribution for the label. As the 80's came, Buddah's roster continued to dwindle. The summer of 1983 saw Buddah's final releases: Michael Henderson's R&B hit "Fickle" (BDA 9007) and an album of the same name (BDS-6004).
