Mandoline is the debut album by Phil Beer, released in 1978/1979[1] on Greenwich Village record label. It follows 1976's Dance Without Music, the second album he recorded with Paul Downes. As the title of this album suggests, a theme on the album is the mandolin, an instrument Beer has used in almost all of his work.

The album is scarce. It is unknown how many copies were pressed, but it has never been reissued.
