    Released: May 1978

Cold Chisel was the self-titled debut album of Australian pub rock band Cold Chisel. Released in April 1978, it spent 23 weeks in the Australian charts, peaking at number 38.[1]

The figure in the foreground of the cover is Mickey Braithwaite, Daryl Braithwaite's wife. [2]

"Cold Chisel" was produced by the inexperienced Peter Walker, who had previously played guitar with Bakery. The release of the album was hurried to coincide with a tour the band had opening for Foreigner.[3] Although the album was well-received, Don Walker was later to say, "I find it embarrassing, the lyrics are so flowery."[4]

Producer Peter Walker intended the album to be a showcase of the breadth of Don Walker's song-writing,[3] and the songs range between jazz-and-blues-based ballads to hard rock.

Allmusic describe the album as a, "stunning debut album. At once polished and raw, this is a classic."[5]
