The Fixx: React (1987)
For some inexplicable reason, The Fixx decided to re-record Red Skies. I simply do not understand that decision. In any case, this record contains four new studio tracks, including the aforementioned Red Skies. The remainder of the tracks are live songs recorded in Canada (yay) in 1986. The record is OK. It doesn't light any fires but at least it's not boring.
In 1988, The Fixx released Calm Animals without producer Rupert Hine. They struck out on a new direction with a new record label. I haven't heard the record and I recall that the reviews were not positive. They left the RCA after only one record. The Fixx released several records after Calm Animals but I haven't heard anything from any of them.
