Gloria is the debut album by the garage rock band The Shadows of Knight, originally released in 1966. The Shadows of Knight are primarily known for their hit version of "Gloria", originally written by Van Morrison's Northern Irish band Them. At the same time, the band today is regarded as one of the original punk bands.
After releasing "Gloria" as a single in December 1965, which received massive regional airplay, the band soon released the Gloria album in the summer of 1966. Subsequent singles included their version of the Bo Diddley song "Oh Yeah" (which reached No. 39 nationally), "Bad Little Woman", and the powerhouse "I'm Gonna Make You Mine".
The follow-up album Back Door Men [MOVLP1751] was also released in 1966 and both albums are considered to be seminal garage band albums.
