    Santa Cruz video - Stand or Fall

    Howdy all,

    Craig von Waaden had a crew of videographers (five cameras) at the Santa Cruz show, and he has posted a nice early edit of "Stand or Fall" on YouTube:

    Wow! I'm sitting here applauding at my computer screen! that was so amazing, such wonderful footage, and they sound great! No wonder I have been a fan for so many years and still going strong!

    Thank you.
    I am the winner in any event.

    I agree with all above - this is an excellent rendition. Now if Cy is reading this - don't take offense, but I noticed something different about this live take. Sometimes, Cy can "overdo" the additional lyric add-in's along the way, but he really backed off and let the instruments work the interludes and such. For example, if you've heard this song live many times, he does non-recorded version things like "....standing or falling...at least we're alive..." or "it's the Eurotheater, it's our human adventure..." and while he did that some, it was greatly reduced and I think the minimization of those add-in's really helped bring this song out.
    Anyone agree/disagree?

    Nice! You can really hear Dan shine on this one. You're right, Cy sounds/acts mellow (but in a good way, still keeping most of the add-ons from the studio version, but giving Jamie's vocals some more room), while Jamie almost seems to be taking over the gesticulating duties! Nice work accenting this and Rupert and Adam's handwork.

    Cy and Jamie BOTH sounded fantastic vocally this whole tour...I was struck by what amazing voices BOTH of them have [live] to a degree I hadn't been before.
    Maybe on course to the best yet!

    Thanks Tipper!

    Dear Wingman,

    Excellent work with the photo guys! Great positioning on stage, too I might add. It was good to see you and work together again. You are a true pro as evidenced by your work on stage, and a great guy as evidenced afterwards....

    Only thing is, certain camera/photo people promised to email me special clips, and I'm still just awaitin fer 'em.... HINT HINT haha!

    Hope to see you in Reno, and hope that all the great footage and stills somehow becomes available in full for all to see. Bash's work was great too. Still, Santa Cruz is the Fixx fan's Shangri-La in my opinion. Can't wait till next time they do Santa Cruz.

    Love To All and All To Love....

    Howdy Craig & Wingo,

    Thanks for shooting the show.
    A big thanks to everyone who was involved & made this whole thing possible; your contributions are greatly appreciated.
    Thanks to THE FIXX, FIXX management, Ed, Scott - the fantastic sound engineer & the exceptional Dr. Roger.

    A five camera shoot truly makes a difference & Craig - your editing capabilities are out of this world! I can clearly see that when watching the Stand Or Fall clip.
    Anxiously awaiting more clips as they become available.

    Cheers!!
