Ammo was the collective name used by gifted songwriters Chris Arnold, David Martin and Geoff Morrow aka Butterscotch. The guys got together one night in 1964 when they demoed a song ultimately recorded by Billy Fury “In Thoughts Of You”, which reached number 5 in the UK charts. During the 60’s, they wrote further songs for Billy Fury, Cliff Richard, Frank Ifield and Cilla Black.

In the early 70’s they decided to release their own songs under the Butterscotch name and had a UK Top 20 Hit with “Don’t You Know” as well as a Japanese Hit with “Surprise Surprise”. After their brief flirtation with performing the guys went back to writing for other artists and they wrote all the singles for RESCUE Co No 1 as well as the smash hit for Barry Manilow “Can’t Smile Without You”, Elvis Presley, Joe Brown, Guys & Dolls, Carpenters, Englebert Humperdinck, Dusty Springfield, Edwin Starr to name just a few – collectively, they have sold over 26 million records around the world and received the most prestigious award for songwriting, an Ivor Novello.

This 2CD set includes original versions of songs that became worldwide hits, unreleased demos and tracks that they released under the name Butterscotch and Arnold, Martin, Morrow from their most creative years of 1966 to 1977.
