Two Meat Loaf albums from the 1990s to get first US vinyl release next month

Two popular Meat Loaf albums, 1993’s Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell and 1995’s Welcome to the Neighbourhood, will be released on vinyl for the first time ever in the U.S. on February 8.

Both records will be reissued as two-LP sets on black vinyl, while a limited-edition blue-vinyl version of Bat Out of Hell II also will be available.

Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell was a sequel to Meat Loaf’s massively successful 1977 debut album, Bat Out of Hell. The record topped the Billboard 200 chart in October 1993, and included the #1 hit “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” and the top 20 single “Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through.”

Bat Out of Hell II has sold more than five million copies in the U.S.
