It’s Only Love is a rock song, taken as the last single from Bryan Adam’s album Reckless. The live version from the maxi single was recorded in Birmingham, England at the N.E.C. on March 23, 1985. Because Bryan was the opening act for Tina’s Private Dancer Tour in Europe, he performed the song at most of the concerts together with Tina as a special guest. At the Break Every Rule Tour in 1987 / '88, Tina performed the song as a duet with John Miles. At the Rainforest Concert in 1993 and once again at Tina’s birthday special Celebrate! in 1999, Tina and Bryan performed it live again. As a special bonus, the single was also released with a gatefold cover, including many live pictures from Tina & Bryan. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award the next year.
