Amore is the first studio album by American rock band The Hooters and was released in 1983.


The Hooters got their start with their independently released album Amore. The album sold over 100,000 copies in the Philadelphia area, and ultimately led to their first major label record deal with Columbia Records in 1984.

Amore introduced the original versions of four songs -- "All You Zombies," "Hanging On A Heartbeat," "Fightin' On The Same Side" and "Blood From A Stone"—which would reappear in different versions on later albums.

In 2001, 18 years after its original release on LP album and cassette, Amore was made available on compact disc and included two cover versions as bonus tracks: The Beatles' "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" from June 15, 1986 at A Conspiracy of Hope, a benefit concert on behalf of Amnesty International at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and The Skatalites' "Man In The Street," a live demo from the very first Hooters recording session in 1980, which was also the band's first song to be heard on the radio.
