Spirit of the West is a 1984 album by Spirit of the West. It was their first album, and was released independently. The album is no longer in print, although portions of it were rereleased on the 1989 compilation Old Material 1984-1986.

From the official Spirit of the West website: "The first album. Absolutely and thoroughly deleted, and therefore a priceless artifact. What a lovely photo. See "Old Material", above, for the half of the songs which have been authorized and preserved in marketable form by the erstwhile Mann and Kelly."
