Akimbo Alogo is the first full-length solo album from Canadian singer and guitarist Kim Mitchell. It includes the only song of his to become a hit in the United States, "Go For Soda".

The original cover art for this album was changed upon its release after the album was remixed and released in the United States in 1985

Its first track, "Go for Soda", is Mitchell's best-known[by whom?] song, recently being featured on TV series such as Canada's own Trailer Park Boys, as well as an episode of the popular American animated sitcom, American Dad.

"All We Are" and "Lager & Ale" also received significant airplay in Canada at the time of the album's release and for a few years after.
