I'm thinking Brave & Crazy will be similar to Bad Attitude/WTTN in that there will be 1-2 Steinman songs (that we've heard before) and produced by someone else (in this case Paul Crook).

It will be interesting to hear what is done and I'll definitely buy CD, but I'm not holding my breath for a complete Steinman vision on any song(s).

Having said all that Steve Rinkoff must have 'lots' of songs recorded/produced (Rob Evan admits to recording over 30), so I can't see why giving Meat 5-6 (already produced) songs would be any great effort?

Maybe split the album into two 'sides'? 'BRAVE' produced by Jim & Rinkoff and 'CRAZY' produced by Paul Crook?

I agree with some others that 'More' may be a good choice (fits well with the Brave & Crazy theme), and maybe new lyrics for one of the Garbo tracks (Centre of the Universe)? Also I think Meat's vocals would work great on something using the 'For Sarah' melody (maybe the original Vaults of Heaven that Rob Evan mentioned)?
