Mighty Love is the fourth studio album recorded by American R&B group The Spinners, released in March 1974 on the Atlantic label. It was the Spinners' second album for Atlantic and, like their breakthrough Atlantic debut Spinners, was produced by Thom Bell at Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia.

History[edit]

The album topped the R&B albums chart, their second consecutive overall to do so. It also reached #16 on the Billboard 200. The single edit of the title track became the group's fourth R&B chart-topper, while "I'm Coming Home" peaked at #3 – both singles also reached the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, as did an edited version of the seven-minute slow jam "Love Don't Love Nobody", which has become a quiet storm classic.
