Love Is is a double album by Eric Burdon and The Animals which was released in 1968 in both the United Kingdommarker and United Statesmarker. It was the last album released before The Animals' second dissolution in 1969.

This album captured the only studio work of Animal and future Police guitarist Andy Summers; he later wrote that this recording of Traffic's "Coloured Rain" contained "one of the longest guitar solos ever recorded until this point ... a 'soaring hymn to ecstacy' style solo that is so long that I find it impossible to play in a full trance state and still come out at the right place, so Zoot [Money] stands in the studio, counting the whole way, and at bar 189 he gives me the cue out." Supposedly this solo earned Summers a "slight legendary reputation."
