    Vote - Your favourite Fixx odds & ends tune

    With only 3 new studio tracks on React and several other rare tunes including live cuts that were never recorded in the studio, this "Odds & Ends" poll will try to include those songs.

    Let me know if I've missed anything.

    I didn't include the Portriats tunes but can add them if necessary.
    LMK

    The 101 Live Letters songs and other Live "bootlegs" can be heard here except for Lonely As A Lighthouse. Sorry, I can not provide Lighthouse at this time.

    Post Last Night She Cried

    A little tidbit about the Last Night She Cried bootleg recording:

    When I recorded this track (1987 at Westport Playhouse in St. Louis) it was the first song of the first encore. I remember some of the people I went to the concert with saying that this song was their favorite that night. Too bad it's cut off a little over half way through...security confiscated my hand held recorder during the song, broke the cassette in two, and threw it on the floor in front of me. After the concert, I picked up the pieces and repaired it the next day. I'm surprised it didn't make the Calm Animals album.

    Wow Dan. Thanks for the background on the recording. We came so close to having NO record of it at all. It is a great tune but you have to admit that it doesn't fit with the theme of Calm Animals. Possibly why they didn't put it on there.

    so where does LIGHTHOUSE fall in place???

    We have songs listed that are not on any studio works, but yet there are recordings....

    Does any one have lighthouse demos?

    i have the milwaukee version, and one other...

    anyone have the later ACOUSTIC Jamie version.....


    even though my preference was the tremelo bending JWO version....


    just my lousy opinion...!!!!!

    "A Letter To Both Sides" loved that this was included with a movie I liked alot [Fletch....BTW I can't wait to find out what Kevin Smith comes up with for his upcoming version of this property] and it is a pretty cool tune.

    Ah, how could I forget Lighthouse?

    I guess I need to change my vote. Anyone else wanting to change their vote please e'mail me privately.

    Thanks for bringing that to my attention Diamond.

    COME ON PEOPLE! RULES AND SCHEMES IS A GREAT SONG!

    I used to play it at my college parties. They loved it.

    BIG WALL, of course

    Actually a tough call between BW and Lighthouse, but without a studio track of the latter, BW gets the nod. It should be running away with this category. I'll be VERY disappointed if it doesn't make it to the next round. Before you vote, go listen to it again. Then, vote for it.

    Some songs that I have never heard. The 101 live letters for example...

    But without doubt my vote for Letter to both sides!

    Ah, I figured I would overlook a couple.

    But its a cover tune so I'm thinking its not tragic that is is missing.
