Cock Sparrer is the first album by punk rock band Cock Sparrer. It was released in 1978 on Decca Records only in Spain.

In 1977 Decca released two singles by Cock Sparrer, “Running Riot” b/w “Sister Suzie” and “We Love You” b/w “Chip on my Shoulder”, neither of which achieved much success. Although the band recorded an album’s worth of material, Decca dropped the band in 1978 and didn’t release the album in the UK, but oddly did release it as this self-titled album in Spain, which featured the four songs released on singles and six more.

The album was first made available in the UK in 1987 when it was released as True Grit by Razor Records. In 2000, the album was released by the Austrian label DSS Records, which re-arranged the tracks and called it Diamonds & Pearls. Then, in 2006, Captain Oi! released The Decca Years, which featured the album with 5 more tracks recorded during the same time.
