    Post Fixx Rarities

    Just ordered Cy Curnin's CD "Mayfly" on the net. Also, have a extremely rare demo from the BMG Ink-sessions. I guess BMG didn't like it because they were dropped from the lable after Calm Animals. I had a friend who worked at BMG who got a copy for me. It has different verions of the songs and some that eventually never made it onto INK. The version of "Crucified" is totally different and much better! Just got the import of Shuttered Room. Has "Sinking Island" and extended version of "Stand or Fall". And on a final note, I have an extended version of "I Will" which is beautiful.....Anyone jealous?

    Hi TC!

    Hey, I'm curious where ou ordered Mayfly, since as far as I know it's not yet released!

    Also, last I heard the album title was no longer going to be called "Mayfly".

    Unhappy

    YES, I'm jealous!

    So, if your friend at BMG can find any
    more copies of the Ink session.... it would
    be great (and I guess that I'm not alone).

    I also hope you share some information about
    "Mayfly" when you receive that.

    Almost crying... (but with a smile).

    I also have the long version of I Will and Sinking Island, as well as the long version of Less Cities, More Moving People and Deeper and Deeper.

    I also have a complilation by 101 Records that was released in the early 80's that has 3 songs by the Fixx (who were then called The Fix (with 1 "X") that do not appear on any of their albums. Very rare!

    I have several UK 7" pic. discs of Stand or Fall and Red Skies, along with one rarity that I've not seen anywhere else, O.T.L.T.A. 7" single in a gatefold sleeve with a bonus single with Red Skies on one side and Stand or Fall on the other. Considering that One thing sold virtually no copies in the UK then I would think that this rates among the rarer items. Inside the gatefold sleeve are Newspaper reproductions of the rise to fame in the States, anyone else have a copy of this?

    Hey TC, I don't suppose that there is any chance of a copy of the INK sessions, I'd love to hear them, will pay, (but don't tell the band)!?*?!!"*$%£
