Expanded edition of this live album, originally released in 1980, Toyah! Toyah! Toyah! was the first live Toyah album and followed up two studio albums and a string of singles which charted well in the independent charts. 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 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. Cherry Red. 2006

"This CD is completely 'mastered' from a VINYL LP! Obviously, it sounds really terrible with quieter tracks like 'Almond Eyes' and 'Moustaches On The Moon' coming off the worst. 'Crackles','pops' and general distortion run rampant throughout and Cherry Red should be ashamed of themselves for releasing such a shabby edition of this long-awaited LP. Nowhere on the (actually quite nice) packaging does it state that this CD was taken from a vinyl album.
Buy it if you want, but I guarantee you'll be disappointed.
A further note. Whether the original masters still exist, I have no idea, but 'S-S-Single Bed' features on a UK compilation album (the excellent 'Guilty Pleasures') and DOES sound like it comes from the aforementioned mastertapes. It sounds a whole lot better than the crackly, distorted version on here!"
