Mayhem
The third in our critically acclaimed Toyah series, this album was originally issued as a limited edition collectors release (vinyl only) by Safari Records in 1985. It compiles a wealth of previously unreleased and unheard rare and archive material A perfect companion to the Safari Singles Collections and ‘Wild Essence' DVD (also available this month), this fascinating album gives an insight into work in progress by Toyah in the late 1970s and early 80s. Mayhem comprises finished songs not included on EPs and albums, demos and alternate versions unavailable anywhere else. The 15 tracks which make up 'Mayhem' include the majestic opener 'Clapham Junction,' an alternate version of the Toyah classic 'Danced' and a unique cover of 'I Believe in Father Christmas' -- originally recorded for Granada TV's 1982 special 'Pop Goes Christmas.' Tracks from the demo tape which got Toyah signed to Safari Records in 1978 also feature in this anthology of lost classics, curiosities and studio doodles. The CD includes the full 15 track album with three tracks only included on the original cassette version. In addition, this brand new expanded version of Mayhem will includes 5 further bonus tracks never before commercially released or included on any Toyah CD! The package will be rounded out with rare, archive images and comprehensive sleeve notes by The Official Toyah Website webmaster which finally reveal the origins of the tracks in a song-by-song commentary, not included in the original release.

North Of A Miracle
Nick Heyward’s debut album, North of A Miracle was originally released through Arista Records in October 1983. In January 1983, he departed Haircut 100 and headed straight into the studio with Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick to produce a timeless classic pop album. It was highly acclaimed by both fans and critics upon its original release and is still held in high esteem today, with Uncut magazine calling it an all time classic that fell off the radar . The album features 4 hit singles, Whistle Down The Wind , Take That Situation , Blue Hat For A Blue Day and On A Sunday .

This reissue has been personally overseen by Nick and expanded from its original 10 track form to include an additional 22 rare and unreleased recordings. These consist of b-sides, alternate versions and remixes, with 4 tracks appearing on CD for the first time. This set also includes a previously unreleased concert recorded on the North of A Miracle tour at London’s Dominion Theatre in November 83.

Toyah! Toyah! Toyah! (special edition)
Originally released in 1980, Toyah! Toyah! Toyah! was the first live Toyah album and followed up two studio albums and a string of singles (Ieya, Victims of the Riddle, Bird in Flight - all included here) which charted well in the independent charts. ITV (then ATV) commissioned a documentary on Toyah in 1980 in which cameras followed her acting, presenting, recording and rehearsing. A concert in Wolverhampton was also filmed for inclusion and is where this live album hails from. The full concert was recorded but a pair of tracks were excluded and used as b-sides to the single release of "Danced (live)". This special edition of the album - with expanded artwork - brings together all of these live tracks for the first time. In addition further live bonus tracks make their CD debut including songs recorded at the ICA, London recorded just before this line-up of the Toyah band disbanded forever. Four previously unreleased tracks from 1982's The Changeling Tour close the CD. Recorded in Glasgow, these include the uncut unexpurgated Dawn Chorus/War Boys suite. Our Price: £9.95
