The Art of Chris Farlowe is the third 1966 album by British Singer Chris Farlowe, featuring his band, "The Thunderbirds", but only credited to him.

Andrew Loog Oldham produced the recordings session with Mick Jagger, who also wrote four songs for Farlowe, later covered by The Rolling Stones. In 1992 was reissued featuring 11 bonus tracks. Carl Palmer, the drummer on this album, would later join The Crazy World of Arthur Brown and then form Atomic Rooster, before joining forces with ex-Nice keyboardist Keith Emerson and ex-King Crimson bassist and singer Greg Lake and form Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Andy White was chosen by producer George Martin to play drums on The Beatles' first single, "Love Me Do" instead of Ringo Starr in 1963.
