MEAT LOAF - Midnight At The Lost And Found [Music On CD reissue] (2020) *0dayrox Exclusive* full

Alongside MEAT LOAF‘s second album, Music On CD has reissued as well his third LP “Midnight At The Lost And Found“. By the early ’80s, Loaf, his songwriting partner Jim Steinman and Epic Records were in the middle of a legal dispute which ended in “Midnight At The Lost And Found” being the first MEAT LOAF album without Steinman involved.
In many ways, this benefited MEAT LOAF to showcase his own songwriting skills, helped by the likes of Steve Buslowe (Kiss, Bonnie Tyler), Mark Doyle (Hall & Oates), Danny Peyronel (UFO), Dick Wagner (Alice Cooper) and more.
With talented Rick Derringer providing many of the guitars, “Midnight At The Lost And Found” is a quite rocking album with that 1983’s sound.

While “Midnight At The Lost And Found” was recorded in a rush because Loaf was contractually obliged to release a final album with Epic before moving to Arista, it isn’t a weak LP at all as many critics stated at the time.
A decade after its release, Loaf himself said he didn’t liked “Midnight At The Lost And Found”, but later admitted he was angry because CBS/Epic didn’t pay his royalties until 1997.

Songs like “Razor’s Edge”, “Fallen Angel”, “Wolf At Your Door” and the title track are good rockers from its era, and while the album didn’t sold well – zero promotion from Epic – over the years it has been revalued by fans and Loaf himself.
The old adage “Try It You’ll Like It” truly applies here.
