Chair Beside a Window is the fourth album by avant-folk/blues singer-songwriter Jandek, and Corwood Industries' first release of 1982 (No. 742).

It is the first Jandek album to feature a female vocalist, most likely named Nancy (the song is called "Nancy Sings"); in a letter to Irwin Chusid, Nancy is described as playing an "unaggressive drum stint," and the other female vocalist is referred to as "Nancy's sister Pat."[citation needed]

It is also the first album to reprise the song "European Jewel" after its "incomplete" version abruptly ended Jandek's debut album four years prior.
