Deluxe three disc (two CDs + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) edition. Digitally remastered and expanded deluxe release of Toyah's debut album Sheep Farming In Barnet. Produced by Steve James and Keith Hale, the album reached #1 on the UK Independent Albums in February 1980 and celebrates it's 40th anniversary in 2020. This album contains the fan favorites 'Race Through Space', 'Neon Womb' and 'Danced', all of which went on to become signature songs for the band. Non-albumd A-Side single 'Bird In Flight'/'Tribal Look' produced by The Boys' lead singer Matt Dangerfield is also included. This expanded edition features 30 bonus tracks made up of non-album singles, rarities and demos. Amongst the 20 previously unreleased tracks are versions originally recorded for Shoestring, the original improvisation vocal that became Victims of The Riddle and the band's first ever pre-signing 1978 demos. A sleeve note by Toyah's archivist Craig Astley, researched with input from co-writer/guitarist Joel Bogen, chronicles the creation of the album, musician line-ups and reveals the recording origins of the album and bonus material for the first time. Includes a DVD (NTSC/Region Free) containing two brand new features with Toyah Willcox; an interview about the album/period, a track-by-track album interview and an exclusive acoustic three-song session of songs from the era - all filmed August 2020. The DVD also includes rare archive TV footage available on DVD for the first time ever including a 1979 interview/performance clips of Race Through Space filmed at Toyah's Battersea warehouse 'Mayhem' for broadcast on What's On (ITV Midlands-only region) and two songs filmed in February 1980 for BBC's The Old Grey Whistle Test.
