False Start is the sixth album by the American rock band Love, released in December 1970.



The second and final Love album for Blue Thumb Records saw bandleader Arthur Lee heavily influenced by his friend, Jimi Hendrix, with Hendrix appearing on the opening track, "The Everlasting First", one of several tracks that Hendrix recorded with Love at a March 1970 session.

"Stand Out", a song from the band's previous album Out Here, was included here in a live rendition.

Three selections from this LP were added to the Love compilation by Love, entitled "Out There".

False Start was issued as part of the May 2007 Hip-O Select release The Blue Thumb Recordings.
