Naked in the Afternoon: A Tribute to Jandek is a tribute album compiled by Moscow, PA-based independent record label Summersteps Records. The album features cover versions of songs by the reclusive avant-folk/blues singer/songwriter Jandek. Many of the artists are members of the Summersteps roster or fans forming one-time combos to participate on the album, but the album also features contributions from Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore (as part of a one-time combo called Dapper), Low, and Bright Eyes.

All of the songs are covers of songs from Jandek's back catalog, with the exception of Bright Eyes' contribution, a Conor Oberst original called "Have You Ever Heard of Jandek?", and part of the contribution by the act Monster Island, "Road To Corwood", which is performed as a medley with the Jandek composition "Lost Cause". Through his Corwood Industries label, Jandek gave full permission to cover his material and, at Summersteps' request, contributed two disposable camera's worth of photos for use as cover art that emulated the singer/songwriter's own record/CD releases.
