Gold und Liebe (Gold and Love) is the fourth album by Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft, released on Virgin Records in 1981. It was produced by Conny Plank.

The album was in the German charts for 21 weeks, peaking at no. 35, and the Austrian charts for 10 weeks, peaking at no. 4.[2]

The album was reissued on Mute Records in 1998.


The Allmusic Guide to Electronica describes the album as "a touch less powerful than on Alles" and not as immediately varied.[3] Trouser Press, contrastingly, considers that the album "perfects the advances of Alles Ist Gut".[4] Simon Reynolds, in Rip It Up and Start Again: Postpunk 1978–1984, describes it as touching on themes of alchemy: "the notion that instead of chasing the profane gold of material wealth, the true quest is for gold of the spirit."[5]
