Default Couldnt Have Said It Better LP??

Hi everyone, i'm a bit of a collector of Meat Loaf vinyl and i have classics such as Welcome to the Neighborhood and Bat I+II+III on vinyl. But i cannot find "Couldn't have said it better" on 12" I'm sure I saw a photograph of it somewhere, but is seams to be pretty elusive at the moment! Any help would be appreaciated

CHSIB is up there as the Holy Grail for Meat Loaf vinyl collectors. There are many on here who are searching for it, and a few of us who can sit back smugly safe in the knowledge we have a copy locked away guarded by leopards ...

Good luck in your hunt, I've not seen another copy for sale since I bought mine 4 or 5 years ago.

I've only ever seen it appear on ebay once, and I was outbid at the last second (most likely by someone on this forum )

As has been noted above, it's a rare piece of vinyl.

I waited for the album to be released in the UK with a blue cover.

That was a mistake

Good luck I got mine through a 2nd hand record dealer on Amazon in Germany when it first came out. It was one of the copies with the labels reversed (i.e. the true Side A labeled as Side B) ... and Meat autographed the cover for me when I saw him at Hershey in 2010. So now it's safely hanging in a frame on my wall .. and not going anywhere

Faulty goods eh?

Still, you could always send it back for a refund

Orrrrrrrrr................

I know how busy these record company chapies can be, so you could always send it to me and i'll be happy to give you what you paid for it.

No, no, don't thank me, it's no trouble at all

unlikely scenario - CHSIB vinyl becomes available on ebay.
how high would the bidding go to?

I've actually seen it on Ebay once ... but I honestly don't remember how high the bidding went.

You definitely have to focus on the German market as the vinyl release was a Germany only thing.

As far as I know this is the case with all copies. I haven't seen one without interchanged labels so far. Does anybody have a CHSIB record that has correct labeling? By the way, many collectors regard such errors as something that adds to the value.

Don't worry, you probably won't have to pay that much. I've seen it on eBay a few times and the highest price it went for was something between 30 and 40 €, as far as I recall. The price isn't the problem - its limited availability is. If you're lucky you don't have to fork out that much money but finding a copy requires constant searching. What you need is patience and investigative skill.

Seems as if it pays off not to live in the UK when it comes to collecting Meat Loaf vinyl. The highest price I paid for a Meat Loaf record was 50 € for a copy of WTTN.

Edit: I have to slightly correct myself. On the one hand it might be easier to get an affordable copy of the CHSIB vinyl in Germany, on the other hand there are several items that have been released in other countries that you hardly find on the German market. Then again, if everything was easily available everywhere, collecting and hunting for particular items would be less fun.

That combo (the RnRD and The Storm on the bonus EP) appears on ebay fairly often so you shouldn't have to wait too long.

I don't understand people wanting the whole vinyl record. I buy it as it is in the shops. My CHSIB has been marked and used till kingdom come, and it still plays all the songs as smoothly and perfectly as ever.

Good, in that case, rather than buy it yourself, you can quietly PM me with a link next time you find a cheap copy on online
