I've got it on tape, but it doesn't sound so good anymore. If you've got it on cd (or md, for that matter) I hope you'd consider selling or trading with me for it.

Hi grimgrin,

You can find copies of Walkabout on ebay fairly regularly. There are two up right now, here's a link to one:

Hey Indy-

That's a pretty cool offer. Thanks! I've found most of it on mp3, and that's good enough until I can get the cd myself.

Oh, and Jeff-

thanks for the suggestion. Of course, being Ebay, the prices usually end up being pretty high. Maybe I'll be able to find it at the Yahoo or Amazon auctions instead...

Thanks!

Thanks!

Not always -- for instance, in the last two weeks there were two copies of Walkabout on cd that went unsold (no bids) for $9 and $7.

that was then, this is now.......just bought one myself and ended up having to pay nearly 40 dollars for it, but it is unopened.
never know who is going to be on bidding against you.

I saw a copy at Spinnaker CD on Cape Cod, Mass. in Hyannis, you might want to call there and see if it available and if they will send it to you. The phone # I have is 508-778-4122,
Good Luck!

Here's the trick with eBay: DON'T BID UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE! If you bid before the auction end, and someone else bids, then you just keep driving the price up. Just pay attention to when the auction ends, and during the last minute, swoop in and get it! (Be sure you're signed in).

I don't normally like sharing my eBay secrets, but since it's for a Fixxture...;)

Uh, huh , uh , hu hh uh hu, Cooool. I'll have to check out Ebay...and try the swoop technique. All Is Fair.

I'm looking for Walkabout in CD, but I'll settle for MP3 if I can get it! I've been looking for years to find this long lost favorite! Can anyone assist? Thanks!

Hi,

Don't quite know how do use a computer but, I'll
be happy to say I LOVE the Fixx and would like to
help you out. How much do you think is fair for
the disc? The sleeve in the bottom is not perfect
and the book in front is a bit bent, but the disc
is basically flawless. I do own 2 of them. I found it used (again) and bought it just for someone like you. It has "Do what you can" ? on the end of it as described as the hidden track
(from missing links). I guess I could ship it to
you from Pleasanton. Where do you live?
You or any Fixxtures can e-mail me at:

stargatesean@yahoo.com

I bought it two times in germany on ebay.de
Once I was lucky enough and it included the hidden bonus track "Do what you can".
The price was at about 12 US-Dollars.
Sorry that I do not have the second copy any more to share it with you...

I think it is because there doesn't seem to be many copies around. :confused:

Yesterday, I saw that Second Spin was selling a used copy of it for 7.99$...I was going to order it today...but it's already gone :( I am unable to find it anywhere...It's not even on eBay...I would appreciate that someone lets me know if they find it anywhere on the Net...

Thanks ! :)

Squeeze: How much are you willing to spend? There are several copies on www.half.com, the cheapest of which is $19.99. You can also find it on www.gemm.com, but you'll end up paying a lot more.

Squeeze

Hi :)

I've already checked Half.com and gemm.com but I'm pretty sure I could find a copy for less than 19.99$....I'm just mad I haven't ordered it from Second Spin while it was available...Also, I don't really like buying stuff from "individuals"....I always feel it is sometimes too risky...I know, I know..I should trust people more...but past bad experiences makes my paranoia level higher than most ;)

Yes, you are correct sir. Extra track and at a reasonable price, too. With around 27 hours left on it it's at $9.99 [though shipping is $4 to US & Canada].

Hello!

I found a originaly cd-copy of walkabout in a second-hand record store. It looks like new but it is without the hidden bonus-track. I paid 9 Euros = 9 US-Dollars for it. If anybody is interested please let me know.

I just had to share my joy with you all because I have just won an ebay bid for a Walkabout CD :)
I am rather curious as to why this particular CD has not been re-released? It certainly is very hard to get, even through ebay!

I won mine on eBay also, and just got it yesterday. It has the hidden track, which is also available on the Missing Links disc I just bought. Was lucky on the eBay thing - I guess people weren't looking, and I got my Walkabout for less than $5.

Wow! That's very good, got mine for $11.00 but that's only about 6 for me so that's quite cheap :D

SilentGeoff
09-19-2004, 09:33 AM
Unbelievable how much that CD has fallen price-wise. There was a time a couple months back that you couldn't get it for less than $18 US. Just happy though to hear you both have gotten it.

Those are two different views of the same thing baby!

The one on Missing Links was recorded LIVE outside at the Farmyard studio. The one on Walkabout was recorded in a studio with overdubs and the such.

Both very enjoyable versions

Thanks - just got missing links and haven't busted it out of the wrapper yet (obviously). Certainly love the version on Walkabout!

Thanks, I was wondering how to go about getting a more comprehensive search for this item and well all things now I have a much better idea how to do it.

If I'm not mistaken, MCA still ownes the masters, and cannot find it profitable to re-release the album.


BTW, I got a Walkabout with the bonus song. And the label says that it was made in Japan. I don't know if that is a reliable indication that there is a bonus song or not. At any rate, it may be beneficial to ask the seller if the CD was made in Japan.

Just wish MCA/Universal would see fit to remaster their whole Fixx catalog in SACD and reproduce them as hybrid discs that will play in any CD player. That would get Walkabout back out there! A friend of mine has a studio and he specializes in remastering for SACD (until recently, he headed up the technical support group for the SACD project at Sony, but it's all been disbanded). He thinks the Fixx would sound awesome in SACD surround. Universal chooses that format for its high-end releases, so it's just a matter of convincing them to do the Fixx's catalog.

Thanks for that dejapete! I have been wondering why it had not been re-released. May I also add that this obviously proves MCA are a bunch of ****ers :D

For anyone still looking for the CD of Walkabout and not keen on paying the $24.99 asked by some greedy sellers online, there's one on eBay from a seller in Germany, currently no bids and starting at 1.99 ($2.70; 1.40). Click here. (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=1572&item=4062100252)
There's another one for sale by someone in New Jersey, with a $3.00 starting bid. Here's that one. (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=307&item=4063202263)
