    Fixx Sound File Archive (Rare Recordings)

    After a lengthy absence, Sight N Sound.org is back on line with the Fixx Sound File Archive.
    http://www.sightnsound.org

    Better visit while it still works. The web hosting company SUCKS and it could go down again at any moment. After my contract with them expires I'll be moving to a more reliable web hosting company.
    Thanks
    Steve

    Well, that was humbling... 90% of the content was new to me; great resource, thank you much!

    Thanks Steve! This is like hitting the "rare Fixx music lottery!" Any fan that doesn't check this out and burn these tracks is not a fan! No CD burner? Get one, it's worth it for this.

    This is FUNNY! I was gonna change web hosting companies 10 years ago? That change just occurred. I guess they pacified me for a while and I stuck with them. Eventually, I couldn't upload any new material due to log-on issues. Tech support was non-existent, no reply at all...so I stopped paying (two years ago). They finally figured it out though and the site went down about a month ago.

    The old site was archaic and I want to update the quality of songs and interface but time escapes me. I don't even have any of the files on a computer any longer (they're tucked away on an inaccessable backup drive). Thanks to our genius administrator Jeff Dinkins who happened to have downloaded every bit of content at the old site, we now have working web site again.

    Thanks Jeff

    Lots of gems in there.
    Enjoy

    Hmm, I get a 400 error, "bad request" -- might be my work's firewall though...

    Steve did the DNS change yesterday, so it might still be propagating around the net. Try hitting reload a few times, and try both http://www.sightnsound.org and http://sightnsound.org

    If in a couple days you still can't get to it, let me know.

    Wow ! Nice rare collection.. so far i found 2 don't download.. built for the future 12" mix and how much is enough 12" dance mix...but still a good collection there ! Thanks

    if you need a place to store it online, i can add it to my website if you wanted. I would zip em all up into one rar file so its easier to download though

    Thanks for catching those! Turns out the problem was the quote in the file name. I've changed it - give it a try again, should work now.

    thanks,

    All should be fine and stable now that it's under Steve's control again :-).

    okay, just let me know if want to later on.. my site will be like many many years alive to come >> it is my love/hobby >>my site: http://unity3d.ca and yeah i would hide the zipped file from the website meaning you'd just download the zipped file with all the songs in it with no song list and page like you have there now ... but.... if im hosting or working on theFIXX's video game, then i would make a page and song list as you have there now

    This is awesome!

    Speaking of rare recordings and b-sides and bonus tracks, does anybody know where I can find the track "Never Mind What You Leave Behind"? I think that's the only one I'm missing.

    Isn't that on the Calm Animals re-issue? Or is it a different version?
