Rock N'Roll Love Letter is an album by the Bay City Rollers. It was a North America-only release, issued in early 1976 by Arista Records, catalogue #4071.

Of the record's 11 tracks, two were lifted from the Rollers' 1975's UK release Once Upon a Star; seven came from Wouldn't You Like It?; and two were newly recorded singles. The cover art features the same photo as Wouldn't You Like It?.

The album reached No. 1 in Canada on 27 March 1976, jumping from No. 25 to the top position in a single week to depose their previous album Bay City Rollers from the top slot.[2] In the US, it went as high as No. 31 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart. Two singles from the disc made Billboard's Top 40: "Money Honey", which reached No. 1 in Canada[3] and peaked at No. 9 in the US; and "Rock and Roll Love Letter", peaking at No. 6 in Canada (12 June 1976)[4] and No. 28 in the US.

This album was finally released on CD (along with "Bay City Rollers") as a 2 LP On 1-CD set in 2011, by Wounded Bird Records.
