Looking Back with Love is the debut solo album by American singer Mike Love, released in 1981 by Boardwalk Records. The album is currently out of print, and has never been issued on CD nor digitally.

Love's cover of "Be My Baby" originates from July 1980 sessions produced by his Beach Boys bandmate and cousin Brian Wilson.[3] However, the released track features additional overdubs and production completed without Wilson, and Curt Boettcher receives the sole production credit.

"On and On and On" is a cover of an ABBA song which was itself influenced by the 1968 Beach Boys song "Do It Again".
