Mercury 811 329-1 (1983)

A: Poison Arrow (Re-Mix) 6:52
Produced and REmixed by Trevor Horn

B1: Theme From Man-Trap 4:15
B2: Theme From Man-Trap (Lounge Sequence) 4:15
Produced by Trevor Horn

  You are now looking at the second A.B.C.
recording. The A side is a song called "Poison
Arrow" torn from the events of my personal life
away from the glare of publicity. Many of you out
there may think standing in the spotlight brings
many rewards. But let me tell you, the fruits of fame
can be sour and I too have my private moments.
  However it is my duty and privilege to share some
of these experiences with you.
  Love's Ammunition, A Poison Arrow or the pain
received at the hands of Cupid. But then again - a
love affair without a broken heart? Like making an
omelette without breaking an egg.
  The flip-side houses "Theme from Man Trap," the
result of a late night spent with my producer Trevor
Horn and piano accompanist.
  Our first disc registered strongly in the
popularity charts but none of this woould have been
possible without you, the discerning customer.
  I hope you enjoy this record as much as we
enjoyed making it. Be young. Be foolish. Be
                    Yours sincerely,
                        Martin Fry.

Of course, twenty years later Horn would still be churning out hits - he produced t.A.T.u. and Seal's fourth album comes out next month...

ABC always had cool cover art. The Millionaire cover is a great example.

I particularly enjoyed the liner notes about being a discerning customer.

Be alphabetical!
