Album of Love is a 1982 studio album by The Three Degrees.


By the early 1980s The Three Degrees had established themselves as an live attraction and favourite television guests in the UK. After their previous record label Ariola folded in 1980, they found themselves without a contract but that did not discourage the trio, consisting of Helen Scott, Sheila Ferguson and Valerie Holiday. Ferguson co-wrote "A Sonnet To Love" and performed lead vocals on that track. Scott was given a rare opportunity to take a full lead on "I Only Have Eyes For You"'. All three shared lead vocals on "MacArthur Park" This track, together with the "Fame Medley" had recently been performed by the group on their second television special for the BBC, "Take 3 Degrees", which had been screened a year earlier.
