Jade Warrior—the debut self-titled and self-produced album by Jade Warrior, released in 1971 as one of the earlier albums of the progressive rock movement. Aurally, the album sets the scene for what the majority of the bands later albums were to sound like—mixing various ethnic sounds with a progressive and unearthly sound, as well as sudden changes between slow acoustic guitar melody, to distorted and heavy electric guitar with a faster tempo.[2]

The album has a definite lack of contemporary drum backing, as the band was yet to include an exclusive drummer, and relied on Field to provide the percussion with non-western instruments.[3]
