Bandolier is Budgie's fifth album, released in September 1975 through MCA Records. It reached #36 in the UK and was certified gold in 1976. The album was released in the US on A&M Records (now owned by MCA successor Universal Music Group, while the MCA label itself has been absorbed into Geffen Records, which like A&M is currently a subsidiary of Interscope Records) in late 1975. The cover art was created by artist Patrick Woodroffe.
The song "I Can't See My Feelings" was covered by Iron Maiden on the b-side to their 1992 single, "From Here to Eternity".
'Bandolier - Budgie', a free iTunes app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, was released in December 2011. It tells the story of the making of Bandolier in the band's own words, including an extensive audio interview with Burke Shelley.
