Self Portrait is the 1970 debut album by English singer Ruth Copeland. The album was released by Invictus Records in 1970 and produced by Ruth Copeland, though it is widely believed that the actual producer of the album was her then husband Jeffrey Bowen working under an alias. The album presumably was recorded during the same sessions that produced Parliament's debut album, Osmium.
In 1996 both Ruth Copeland albums were licensed by HDH Inc. and reissued by P-Vine Records individually. In 1997 both Ruth Copeland albums were reissued on one CD under the juxtaposed title Self Portrait/I Am What I Am (Deepbeats DEEPM 022). It was then issued under the title Gimme Shelter - The Invictus Sessions (Castle Music CMRCD 576). Both compilations omitted the track "Un Bel Di (One Fine Day)". To date, both Ruth Copeland albums have not been released in the U.S. on CD. The two (complete) albums, plus bonus single mixes of some of the songs, were released in a two-disc set by UK label Edsel Records in October 2009.
