Lady Coryell is Larry Coryell's first album as a leader. The album was recorded in 1968 when Coryell was 25. It was produced by Coryell himself and Danny Weiss and engineered by Randy Rand, with assistance of Peter Atchley. Lady Coryell features Coryell as a singer, guitar player and bass player, and also drummer Bob Moses, who accompanies Coryell on all tracks except on track 8.

Before this release, Coryell had already recorded two albums with vibraphonist Gary Burton, and was leader of a group called The Free Spirits, who had recorded their first and only album Out of Sight and Sound in 1967. Bob Moses was the drummer of the Free Spirits.
