Description

Meat Loaf has hand signed in black ink the front cover of his LP “Midnight At The Lost And Found”   Midnight at the Lost and Found is a 1983 album by Meat Loaf. This would be the final Meat Loaf release under Epic Records until 1998’s The Very Best of Meat Loaf.  Following a dispute with his former songwriter Jim Steinman, Meat Loaf was contractually obliged to release a new album. According to Meat Loaf, Steinman gave him “Total Eclipse of the Heart” and “Making Love (Out of Nothing at All)” for the album, but Meat’s record company refused to pay for Steinman.

The songs Steinman had given to Meat Loaf were then given to Bonnie Tyler and Air Supply respectively, which both became hits in their respective countries and worldwide. Struggling for time and with no resolution to his arguments with Steinman seemingly on the horizon (eventually, Steinman and Meat Loaf would sue one another), he was forced to find songwriters wherever he could, including writing the songs himself.

Meat Loaf is credited with being involved in the writing of numerous tracks on the album, including the title track. However, as Meat would later admit, he was not much of a songwriter and did not like the songs he had written for the album. It was also regarded by fans and critics alike as a poor effort whether compared to previous releases or on its own merit. Those same fans and critics were disappointed to see that the iconic pictures on the covers of Bat out of Hell and Dead Ringer were replaced by a black-and-white photograph of Meat Loaf. (On some later re-releases, a color image of a screaming Meat Loaf was used as the cover image.)
