In 2007, Universal Music brought out an expanded Deluxe Edition of Too-Rye-Ay, the breakthrough second album by Kevin Rowland & Dexys Midnight Runners, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its original release. The Deluxe Edition was a two-disc set that expanded the original album with a wealth of rare tracks and live recordings; Too-Rye-Ay [Rarities Edition] is a single-disc release that doesn't include the original Too-Rye-Ay album, but offers 22 of the bonus selections that were featured on the Deluxe Edition. Too-Rye-Ay [Rarities Edition] features the same cover painting as the original 1982 album, which may confuse those unfamiliar with the minutia of the band's discography. But for serious fans of the group who haven't been able to find the Deluxe Edition, this is a major prize package, including two non-LP tracks ("Love Part 2" and an alternate version of "Let's Make This Precious"), four numbers from a BBC radio session with David Jensen, two from a live performance at Shaftsbury Avenue, and a full 14 songs from a June 1982 concert in Newcastle recorded by the BBC. This material has long been difficult to find in the United States, so American fans will particularly welcome this chance to catch up with material from the year Kevin Rowland and his bandmates broke worldwide.
I LOVE THIS SONG!
