1. MTV CONCERT: The Fixx Live In Denver, CO at The Rainbow Music Hall September 8th 1983: This concert was performed around the time of the Fixx’s second U.S. release, Reach the Beach. The group (originally recording and performing under the name the Portraits), had the good luck to emerge at the beginning of the Golden Age of MTV. Like the Eurythmics and the Human League, the Fixx were trendy Brits whose music videos were just cool enough to dominate the new medium. Their initial album, Shuttered Rooms, contained the hits “Red Skies at Night” and “Stand Or Fall,” both featured here. But it was Reach the Beach, with its single “One Thing Leads To Another” (which hit the #4 spot on the Billboard charts), that gave the band their big commercial breakthrough. When they made this recording, the group was introducing material for its still unreleased second album.

This recording captures the band in its prime, with Curnin proving he could really sing, unlike so many of the pretty boy pop bands that skyrocketed to fame in the early 1980s. Credit must also be given to West-Oram, who illustrates what an exceptional guitarist he really is. Like his contemporary the Edge (from U2), West-Oram was instrumental in developing the band’s ethereal audioscapes that many of their songs were built around. Track listings: The Sign of Fire, , Stand Or Fall, Cameras In Paris, Running, Some People, Reach The Beach, title unknown, One Thing Leads To Another, Outside, Saved By Zero and Red Skies amongst others. (60 Minutes)
