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

Background

The Hooters got their start with their independently released album "Amore". The album became a cult favorite in the Philadelphia area, selling over 100,000 copies, 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 finally made available for the first time 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.
