leave a comment »

The weather is warming up around Second Disc HQ, and as our way of celebrating, we’re giving away a “hot” disc from our friends at Legacy Recordings.

Released in Australia last fall and in stores in the U.S. today, Hell in a Handbasket is the 12th and latest album by rock icon Meat Loaf. Produced by Meat Loaf’s longtime lead guitarist Paul Crook, the disc features 12 new recordings (including a cover of The Mamas & The Papas’ “California Dreamin'”) and guest appearances by Public Enemy’s Chuck D (who co-wrote “Mad Mad World/The Good God is a Woman and She Don’t Like Ugly”) as well as Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray, country singer Trace Adkins and rapper/producer Lil Jon. McGrath and Jon were Meat Loaf’s Celebrity Apprentice partners, and together all three guests lend their talents to lead single “Stand in the Storm.”

How can you win? Simple! We have a trivia question for you music geeks out there to answer:

In 2006, Meat Loaf performed the Jim Steinman-penned “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now” for his album Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster is Loose. Name the first performer to record this song.

Send an e-mail to theseconddisc (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject head “Meat Loaf” and include your answer in the body of the message. We will be accepting winners until midnight tonight – a quick and easy contest for you, dear readers. Good luck!
