"Glitter" was an album released in 1972 by British glam rock singer Gary Glitter, produced by Bell Records. Two tracks, "I Didn't Know I Loved You ('Til I Saw You Rock 'N' Roll)" and "Rock 'N' Roll", the latter a song in two parts, achieved success as singles; each spent time amongst the top forty singles in both the United States and the United Kingdom.

The album featured, in addition to including the two singles, other original songs that generated fan support, including "Rock On!", "Shakey Sue" and "The Famous Instigator", as well as Glitter's versions of "Baby, Please Don't Go" (written and first performed by American Big Joe Williams) and "The Wanderer" (first recorded by Dion DiMucci & the Del-Satins).

The album was the first by Glitter to achieve international success and presaged his 1973 "Touch Me".
