Love Tracks is the sixth studio album by Gloria Gaynor, released in 1978. It includes her million-selling #1 hit single "I Will Survive" which originally started out as the b-side to the album's first single, a cover of Clout's "Substitute" before it was flipped. (The 12" single was quickly deleted and the 4:26 album version was replaced with the 8:01 12" version in order to sell more albums).

The song "Anybody Wanna Party" also became a hit, becoming a top 20 hit on the club/dance chart, as well as peaking at #16 on the R&B chart.

Love Tracks was released on CD in Japan in 1992. Big Break Records released an expanded CD-version of Love Tracks in 2013.
