I Stand Alone is the title of New York City based singer-songwriter Al Kooper's 1968 début album, issued on Columbia Records, recorded after his collaboration with Michael Bloomfield and Stephen Stills, Super Session.

An eclectic mix of country, soul, blues, and rock with a dose of psychedelia mixed throughout, it is a continuation of Super Session in its mix of disparate covers from the likes of Bill Monroe, Harry Nilsson and Traffic and originals running the gamut of feelings.

Unlike that album, however, with the spotlight on Kooper alone and Kooper's alternate utilization of orchestras and professional Nashville studio musicians, the tracks are more focused, all within two and five minutes. "Camille" is lifted from "Overture to Le Domino Noire" by French composer Daniel Auber

Most tracks are bridged with sound effects taken from albums issued by Elektra Records. The Overture begins with a collage of sound effects also taken from those albums.
