(1988) (as Y Kant Tori Read)

Baltimore is the name of the very first single released by a pre-fame Tori Amos.

16 year old singer/songwriter Tori Amos, then known by her birth name of Myra Ellen Amos, recorded the song in response to a 1979 contest by the city of Baltimore. Her new theme song for the Baltimore Orioles baseball team won the contest.

Pressed on only 500 7" vinyl records, it was given a citation by the Mayor of Baltimore, Maryland. As of the year 2002, a copy of this record complete with original sleeve sells for $2,000-$5,000 USD. The sleeve is not a picture sleeve. A copy with an original resume for "Ellen Amos" could go for as much as $7,000. It features a b-side track called "Walking With You". It was released on "MEA Records", which was Amos' initials.
