"You are now looking at the first ABC recording to be released in the USA...
The story begins back in Sheffield in 1979: Cut back, remember, retrace steps, and begin...
Martin Fry's obsessions with pop had taken him out of his bedsitter but nowhere important so far. With ambitions to carve out a very considerable niche in the international pop world, a portfolio of arrangements, and an attache case full of surprises, he had a world view and a name: ABC. What he needed, more than anything else, was a group to back it up.

Recruitment would not be easy, but with a certain amount of detective work, and wide scope dragnet in operation, members were found - musicians who knew the meaning of a clean shirt and even cleaner syncopation. With promises of a road that leads from hometown living rooms to Las Vegas, Fry was armed.

It seems that the initial idea was to make music the way a factory might build a car, with a designer's attention to detail scanning from bumper to fin, upholstered and customised to personal specifications. Six months later, the ABC sound had developed into a catalogue of songs that were to excite the hearts of many a record company mogul.

The first step was to record a debut single, but it had to be done with the right kind of record company; ignoring the huge conglomerates, Fry went with the only choice: Neutron Records. To them, all that glitters is gold....and Fry liked it. Ready to go - and they immediately negotiated a gigantic worldwide deal with Polygram (based on violence and greed, maintained by terror and fear) that was to taken Neutron Records and ABC into the 80's and beyond.
With the recording of "Tears Are Not Enough", ABC was brought into the public eye; success was rapid, Stage One of Martin Fry's plan was complete.

Stage Two was clearly another song, another recording: the one in this package, in fact. "Poison Arrow" is a song torn from the events of Fry's personal life, away from the glare of publicity. Many of you out there may thing standing in the spotlight brings its rewards, but Martin is the first to state that the fruits of fame can be sour; he too has his private moments. But it is his duty and privelege to share some of those experiences with the public.

What's it about? Love's ammunition, a poison arrow....or the pain received at the hand of Cupid. But then again - a love affair without a broken heart? It's like making an omelette without breaking an egg.

"I hope you enjoy this record as much as we enjoyed making it. Be Young. Be Foolish. Be Alphabetical...." Martin Fry
