I do, its basically the same as CHSIB just less content and Decedent Wish.

On my version, the edit of DIST, Testify, and Decedent Wish are different.

No pix, but some information on my website.

Basically, it's a CD (can't recal if it was a CDr or a factory pressed one) in a plastic sleeve, with a plain white paper insert with the track titles. Slightly different versions for some of the songs, most notably 'Testify'.

I didn't know this existed either and felt the same "something I ain't got" feeling...

now rectified that feeling, promo cd on it's way from France.

No. There is no cover, just a printed inlay with track titles.

I haven't heard of either of them either, so that's something else to be on the lookout for.

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR Can't find one anywhere!

I still need this and a CHSIB vinyl

Not impressed!

I'm guessing there is lots more stuff I don't have! I got 'Back Into Hell Again' from Germany the other day, it's a 'Best Of' with 3 Steinman Bad For Good tracks, Heros and Eddies Teddy. Was a pretty good find I think. Never come across Meat's Eddies Teddy and Heros on CD before?

"Eddie's Teddy" is from the Roxy Cast version of The Rocky Horror Show. The CD should still be in print.

When "Heroes" was first released as a single, there was a CD version. Still haven't been able to locate a copy myself. (Not that I'm really trying, seeing what they're going for.) Besides that, it does appear on several 'budget' compilations. And not nescesarily exclusive Meat Loaf themed ones. I got one on a 'Rock Hits' compilation, with tracks by Alice Cooper ("Freedom"), Saxon ("Ride Like the Wind") and Great White ("Rock Me").

Yea 100 bucks a pop is too much, but I posted the CD version on my website for whoevers interested.

The pasge aint done yet with linkage but whatevers in green you can hear a short 30 second clip. Heroes is the entire CD version for those who cant afford the 150 bucker.

Link's in my sig

Half of BBIS: Masculine, Burning Down, BBIS, Rock & Roll hero, and Getting Away With Murder

Masculine and Burning Down, IMO are better than Heroes but heroes does beat the rest.

I practically live on ebay, and I haven't seen them. The only time I saw the vinyl CHSIB it went for an outrageously expensive price and I was saving for the UK concerts at the time. I've got Bat 2 & 3 and WTTN on vinyl. I have my original vinyl of BOOH somewhere, and the picture disc, and a blood red vinyl of it as well.
