Raw Melody Men was released in 1991 and is the first official live album release by British rock band New Model Army.

The album was recorded during the 1990 Impurity tour at the Brixton Academy, The Town & Country Club in London, the Berlin Eissporthalle and the Hamburg Sporthalle. The album was mixed at the Sawmills Studio in Cornwall.

On the album the track "A Liberal Education" has been abbreviated on "Lib Ed".

The title of the album, Raw Melody Men, is an anagram of "New Model Army". NMA did a short tour playing in small clubs "incognito" under this name prior to the big tour during which the live album was recorded.[citation needed]
