Loggins and Messina is the second album by singer/songwriters Loggins and Messina, released in 1972.

Following on the success of their first album, this album built on the strengths of their debut outing. It also became the true introduction of the team, Loggins and Messina, not as singles playing together, but rather as a team that played as one.

It featured two songs that charted, with "Your Mama Don't Dance" reaching its peak at #4, their highest charting single. The album itself charted at #16. The album version of "Thinking of You" is a different recording than the hit single. Kenny Loggins played harmonica on more than one song: "Whiskey", "Long Tail Cat", "Thinking of You" and the Jim Messina-penned instrumental "Just Before the News", making it the duo's only album to have harmonica on more than one song.
