Cactus is the eponymous debut studio album by American hard rock band Cactus. Released in 1970 through Atco Records. It includes original songs from the band as well as two covers of Mose Allison's version of a blues standard, "Parchman Farm" and Willie Dixon's "You Can't Judge a Book by the Cover". The album is also notable for the track "Let Me Swim" which later loosely inspired the 1978 guitar solo "Eruption" composed by Eddie Van Halen.
All titles written and arranged by Appice, Bogert, Day and McCarty, except where noted.
