Bed-Sitter Images is the debut album of folk artist Al Stewart, released in 1967, and again in a revised edition with a new cover picture in 1970. The songs were orchestrated by Alexander Faris. Although the cover of both editions spells "Bed-Sitter" with a hyphen, many reviews, and even Al Stewart's official website, spell the title as "Bedsitter Images".
The album is commercially available as part of a 2-CD box set "To Whom It May Concern", which contains Stewart's first three albums as well as both sides of his first single and the tracks added to the 1970 re-release. A new CD reissue in 2007 (Collector's Choice Music) contains all tracks from both versions of the album plus bonus tracks.
The album has also been released in Japan as The News From Spain (The First Album), with the addition of some later recordings by Stewart.
