Toyah - The Changeling - Pink vinyl edition

£26.95

Newly remastered release of Toyah ’s 1982 silver- selling album ‘The Changeling’. The release continues the re-issue programme of Toyah’s entire Safari Records catalogue.

Produced by the acclaimed Steve Lillywhite , the album features a line-up of Toyah Willcox (vocals), Joel Bogen (guitar), the late Phil Spalding (bass) and the revered Simon Phillips (drums). The album also features guest synthesizers/ keyboards from Andy Clark (David Bowie ’s ‘Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)’, member of Be-Bop Deluxe ) and Simon Darlow . The brass section from Haircut 100 also feature on ‘Street Creature’.

‘The Changeling’ is the darker, more grown-up sequel to the previous year’s gold-selling album ‘Anthem’. ‘The Changeling’ entered the UK Top 40 in June 1982, peaking at number six, it spent 12 weeks on the chart was awarded a silver sales certification.

The album was preceded by the single ‘Brave New World’, which was accompanied by a David Mallet -directed video recalling Bowie’s solarised ‘Ashes To Ashes’ promo, but with Toyah’s unique and memorable hair, make-up and performance. The album also includes the much-loved fan favourite ‘Angel & Me’, the dramatic, horror movie-esque ‘The Packt’ and irresistibly melodic, rallying cry of ‘Dawn Chorus’.

‘The Changeling’ has been remastered by Nick Watson from the original master tapes and approved by Joel Bogen, and further endorsed by Steve Lillywhite.

The album is available on strictly limited-edition neon pink coloured vinyl, reflecting the striking colour of Toyah’s ethereal hair from the back cover and in the ‘Brave New World’ video. A new colour inner bag design features rare imagery plus an additional four-page facsimile of the LP’s original insert contains the lyrics to all ten songs on the album plus additional poetry by Toyah Willcox
