I've been reading about this Brian May and Meat Loaf duet for the Paralympics sometime in the 80s and would love to actually hear the track. I can't seem to find it anywhere on eBay and can only find little if any information about it. Can anyone help or even better direct me to somewhere I can hear or purchase the song?

It does crop up on ebay, but not often in it's original form (ie the 7"/12") from 1987.

However, it has been included on some VERY bargain bin CD collections over the years.

I think it MAY be on a compilation of Meat Loaf & Bonnie Tyler, plus a "best of the Meat Loaf material we could get the rights to" from some obscure record label, and DEFINITELY on the 3 CD compilation "Essential ROCK" on the DISKY label in 1997.

Addendum..

Ignore the Bonnie Tyler thing (it's not on that), but it may well be on this..

Why put a sample up against the whole file? I hadn't refreshed the page and didn't know it was there.

It always sounds very Spinal Tap to me, so maybe don't get your hopes up...
