Björk is the only studio album by Icelandic singer Björk Guðmundsdóttir as a child singer, released on 18 December 1977 by Fálkinn. In 1976, Björk appeared on Icelandic radio singing "I Love to Love" through the music school she attended, which led her to a record deal and the release, with the help of stepfather Sævar, of her first solo album in 1977.

For Björk, it's an appropriate approach because each phase of her solo career has had a distinct personality, look, and sound. Most of Debut Live is constructed from the aforementioned Unplugged - the holdout is the much-circulated and elegant harpsichord version of "Venus as a Boy", from a 1995 appearance on Later with Jools Holland. The only absent Unplugged track is "Atlantic". The set is mostly a muted affair in which the newly solo Björk seems hesitant to be the focus. The majority of the album (nine of 13 tracks) is culled from the 1997 Shepherd's Bush Empire performance, and is filled out by another pair of tracks from the 1995 Jools Holland appearance (an unfortunately tired rendition of "Hyper-Ballad" and a slightly countrified "Possibly Maybe"), a brisk run-through of "I Miss You" from TFI Friday and a playful.
Recorded in 1994 for an MTV UNPLUGGED session, this live-in-studio set features Bjork performing nearly every song from DEBUT, backed by an eclectic cast of musicians that includes her frequent collaborator Guy Sigsworth, percussionist Talvin Singh, harpist Corky Lake, and jazz luminaries Oliver Lake and Julius Hemphill.
