Toyah Solo 7CD+DVD box

Toyah Solo 7CD+DVD box set

A new box celebrating Toyah’s career is on its way • Signed set sold out

Toyah’s solo career is to be celebrated in a new box set due next month from Demon.

Toyah Solo mops up the era from 1985 onwards when Willcox signed as a solo turn to Sony’s Portrait Records and then subsequent EG releases, and comprises of seven CDs and a DVD plus a 48 page book. (If you’re a cursory fan and a bit confused and wondering ‘hang on, wasn’t she always solo?’ it transpires that up until then, Toyah was the name of the band she fronted.)

The box charts the Birmingham post-punk lungsmith’s progression from chart star – with hits such as ‘Soul Passing Through Soul’ and her cover of ‘Echo Beach’ – to increasingly experimental artist and back again, and features the six albums Minx (released 1985) Desire (1987), Prostitute (1988), Ophelia’s Shadow (1991), Take The Leap! and Velvet Lined Shell (both 1994) alongside Remixed, Revisited & Rare 1992-98  which contains updates on some of her biggest hits.

There are 44 bonus tracks, including rarities, B sides and collaborations as well as several unreleased tracks. There is also a DVD of promo videos and a bonus new interview from 2019.

Among the extra treats, Toyah has written sleevenotes for each album and there’s an essay about this period penned by Toyah archivist and box-compiler Craig Astley. And the really good news is that Amazon UK have an exclusive edition, limited to 500 units, that comes with a print signed by Toyah (already sold out!).

Toyah Solo will be released 28 February 2020
