Never released before this CD contains all their recorded material, they never bettered DYK and didn’t trouble the charts again but if you like ‘Sunshine pop, harmony ala Harmony Grass style there is much to enjoy ‘Surprise Surprise’ and ‘Sunday Wont be Sunday Any More’ being two highlights. And as aforementioned you’ll be humming DYK for the rest of the day!

This CD brings together the album and a handful of As and Bs…You could call it “Butlins Psych” – British Bubblegum with chart potential; songs Cliff, Cilla and Tom would feel comfortable belting out. ‘Things I Do For You’ and the follow-up single ‘Surprise Surprise’ evoke a family holiday to the Costa Brava, ‘Office Girls’ is pure ’68-vintage Cat Stevens, and ‘Constant Reminder’ is catchier than Chlamydia.
Shindig magazine – January 2012
‘Constant Reminder’ is a perfect, if straight-faced pop song, while ‘Reasons’ boogies down as if Roy Orbison engaged Chuck Berry for a jam. Butterscotch’s LP still stands as a testament to the trio’s tuneful wit.
DME Music Site (September 2011)
All 13 tracks from that album (Surprise Surprise) and a further seven subsequently released as singles for other labels make up Don’t You Know It’s Butterscotch. Surprise Surprise was itself a hit in Japan and is in much the same vein as Don’t You Know – as indeed is most of what is on offer here.

There’s no better way to relive the sound of the early seventies. GET THIS! Highly recommended.

As might be expected from such well established writers…the record was made up of some very enjoyable compositions, many of which sounds nicely half-familiar even on first listening.
The Beat (October 2011)
David Martin’s smooth, airwave-friendly pop voice hits the ear most agreeably…’Us, Bye For Now’ – the album proffers stylish, seductive, flock-wallpaper-and-fondue-set 70s balladry in the Bread mould…
