Live at the Hammersmith Odeon '81 is a live album by The Stranglers, released by EMI in 1998 as part of the BBC Archive Series. Despite its title, the recording apparently hails from a gig on 8 February 1982.[1]

This concert was recorded by the BBC radio 'In Concert' programme for broadcast but was never broadcast. It remained in the BBC archives for 16 years until it was released on CD in 1998. The CD title was originally released as Live At The Hammersmith Odeon '81 but this was corrected at a later date to '82. The concert was recorded on 8 February 1982 during the second part of The Stranglers' La Folie British tour.
