Hell in a Handbasket
On September 29th, Meat Loaf’s latest album Hell in a Handbasket has been released in Australia and New Zealand. (Which is quite a quick turnover, just 18 months behind Hang Cool Teddy Bear.)
Like a good boy, I pre-ordered a copy, and it arrived yesterday. Like a good web master, I got busy, and now all the Hell in a Handbasket lyrics are up.
I’ll review the album in due time.
Over the last few months I’ve acquired some missing singles and additional versions. Highlights include:
- Two Ellen Foley singles: Young Lust (which seems to be undocumented in the most comprehensive Ellen Foley discography on the web) and Johnny and Mary, which completes the trilogy of singles from the Another Breath album.
- An acetate for Pandora’s Box It’s All Coming Back To Me Now single, which includes an edit I hadn’t heard before and A Teenager in Love. In addition to another IACBTMN promo, a promo for "Safe Sex", a cassette promo for the Original Sin album and a spiffy poster which I’m trying to work into the Pandora’s Box page, I think I’m nearly done with that part of the collection. I don’t know if there’s much more out there to search for.
- Three promo singles were issued for Whistle Down the Wind, and I got two of ‘em. The third is a one-track promo for Tina Arena’s version of the title track, and I can live without that.
- Until recently, I didn’t know there were 12″ maxi-singles of "I’d Do Anything for Love" and "I’d Lie for You". I managed to track down copies of both, and the first has arrived.
