Gottle O'Geer (credited to "Fairport" and to "Fairport Featuring Dave Swarbrick" in the US) is the eleventh studio album by English folk rock band Fairport Convention. The album was released through Island Records in May 1976.
The venture was originally intended to be a solo album for Swarbrick, who later said of it: "Gottle O'Geer, I would like to say once and for all was not ever supposed to be a Fairport album. It was to be my solo album, and I wish, along with most other people, that it had remained that way. Chris Blackwell, who to my mind is the richest, clueless, most unscrupulous pillock it was ever my misfortune to meet, had other ideas." As such, the basic line-up of Swarbrick and rhythm section was augmented by numerous guest appearances.
Simon Nicol was asked to assist in sorting out the project: "... there was plenty on tape but it was a bit of a ragbag really. Peggy and Swarb asked me if I'd come in to engineer it for them. It was huge fun to be involved in. Island just gave us the keys and said 'turn out the lights when you leave' so there were a lot of all-night sessions in the studio."
The album's title comes from the reputed inability of less skilled ventriloquists to pronounce "bottle of beer".
