Too-Rye-Ay Deluxe Rarities is an album of mainly live recording bonuses included in the Deluxe Version of Too-Rye-Ay by Dexy’s Midnight Runners.
It’s quite common these days for classic albums to be re-issued with live bonus tracks but rarely do bands take this extra step of issuing the new tracks as an album on their own.
