As You Were is a 2005 live album by English acoustic roots duo Show of Hands.

The band recorded, with helm at Mick Dolan, the entire 2004 winter tour onto MiniDisc. This meant ploughing through each show the following day to identify the best performances and then collating and working through the "A list again" to find the best tracks. This album is the first to credit Miranda Sykes.
