The latest title in the continuing remastered Toyah series, the long-awaited ‘Toyah Live At Drury Lane’ – Toyah’s legendary Christmas Eve 1981 concert in its first ever audio release on vinyl.

Toyah, the band, were invited by the BBC to play a special live concert on 24 December 1981 for broadcast live on BBC2 for The Old Grey Whistle Test Christmas Special. Simultaneously the concert was broadcast in stereo on BBC Radio 1. The much-loved Christmas Eve 1981 concert was watched by an astonishing 12 million television viewers.

Following a year of top ten hit singles in 1981 plus the Gold-selling album ‘Anthem’, the band closed out the year with this fantastic energetic and celebratory concert. Previously only ever available on a BBC VHS video cassette in 1982, this release marks the first time the stereo audio has been released.

The action-packed set list contains the Top 10 hit singles ‘It’s A Mystery’, ‘I Want To Be Free’ and ‘Thunder In The Mountains’ alongside the classics ‘Jungles Of Jupiter’, ‘Danced’ and ‘Ieya’.

Fan favourites ‘War Boys’, ‘We Are’ and ‘Victims Of The Riddle’ also appear on the 2LP vinyl release.

The band line-up for this concert saw Toyah Willcox (vocals), Joel Bogen(guitar), the late Phil Spalding (bass) and Adrian Lee (keyboards) joined by acclaimed drummer Simon Phillips.
