Stealers Wheel is the debut 1972 album by the Scottish folk rock band Stealers Wheel. It never charted in the UK, as did neither of the first two singles, "Late Again", or "You Put Something Better Inside Me". "Stuck in the Middle with You" reached the Top 10 in the UK, US and Canada.

The cover painting was by John Patrick Byrne. The words "Stealers Wheel" are embedded eight times in the design, in addition to the large lettering in the bottom left-hand corner.
