Love for Sale is an album by pianist Cecil Taylor recorded for the United Artists label in April 1959. The album features performances by Taylor with Buell Neidlinger, and Denis Charles with Bill Barron and Ted Curson added on three tracks.


The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek states "This may be the straightest record Cecil Taylor ever recorded, but it is far from uninspiring... Love for Sale is a delightful anomaly in Cecil Taylor's long career".[2]
