Live/Indian Summer is the first live album by Al Stewart, released in 1981. It was originally released as a double LP, with sides 2, 3 & 4 featuring live material while side 1 featured five new studio recordings. The side 1 tracks were recorded at Evergreen Studios, Los Angeles between June–August 1981, while the three live sides were recorded at The Roxy Theatre, Los Angeles in April 1981. This was the second and last album Stewart performed with his backing band Shot in the Dark.

This album was never released on CD in its entirety until 2007, where previously, the five studio tracks were released as bonus tracks on the 24 Carrots CD re-releases, and the live tracks on the 1997 re-release, Live at the Roxy, Los Angeles 1981. The 2007 re-release includes all sixteen tracks on one compact disc.
