Looking In is the sixth album by the British blues band Savoy Brown. The album featured "Lonesome" Dave Peverett on vocals after Chris Youlden left the band the previous spring. Leader/guitarist Kim Simmonds would be the only band member to continue with the band after this album, as all other band members left to form Foghat the following year.

It was released by Decca in 1970 (SKL 5066). For release in the United States and Canada, tapes were leased to Parrot Records (PAS 71042).

The album spent a week on the UK Official Charts and reached number 50.[2] It did considerably better in the US where it spent 19 weeks on the Billboard 200, peaking at number 39, their second highest charting US album.[3]
