The Early Acid Mothers Temple Recordings 1995–1997 is a compilation of recordings by Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. released in 2007 by Synesthetic Recordings.

The compilation was released as a double LP (SYRE 011) in a limited edition of 408 copies. A special Triple Trip Edition (SYRETRIPP 011) including a third bonus LP and a poster, limited to only 100 copies, was issued at the same time. A double CD version (SYRE 012) is planned for release in 2011.

The compilation features the first sessions of the band, recorded at Acid Mothers Temple from 1995 to 1997. Disc 1 was originally released as Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. 1 (AMT-001) and disc 2 originally released as Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. 2 (AMT-002), two companion cassettes issued by the Acid Mothers Temple label in February 1997 in limited editions of 50 copies each.

The bonus material on disc 3 was recorded at Acid Mothers Temple from 1995 to 1996 and originally released on Acid Mother's Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O., a cassette issued in 1996 in a limited edition of 10 copies. The cassette also featured a track called "Psycho Line", but it was considered to be of inferior musical value and was omitted from this reissue on the request of band leader Kawabata Makoto.

Most of the songs were later released in different forms on the band's eponymous debut album and other recordings.
