Strawberry Sampler Number 1 is a studio album by English band Strawbs. It was originally released as a publisher's demonstration record, intended to advertise Dave Cousins's and Tony Hooper's songs to other artists. Most of the songs were re-recorded by the band on later albums ("Ah Me, Ah My" was used unchanged on the Grave New World album).

The initial white label pressing ran to 99 copies on 12-inch vinyl pressings. There are only two known vinyl copies in existence, making this one of the UK's most collectible records. In November 2012 a copy was auctioned on Ebay and sold for a final bid of £909.88.
