From the Classic Albums series by Eagle Vision. This tells the remarkable story of the album, as told by its leading contributors, including Meat Loaf himself, composer Jim Steinman, record producer Todd Rundgren and backing vocalists Ellen Foley and Karla de Vito, together with others who helped in the construction of the album. Features archive footage, interviews and live performances, plus top songs from "Bat Out of Hell.
Never one for understatement, the aptly named singer known as Meat Loaf (aka Marvin Lee Aday) teamed with operatically-minded pianist-composer Jim Steinman to produce a bombastic slab of 1970s classic rock that has become one of the biggest selling albums of all time. Fueled by Steinman's epic compositions, Todd Rundgren's grandiose production, and Meat Loaf's own soaring vocals, the singer's 1977 debut BAT OUT OF HELL elevated the rock-opera genre to appropriately theatrical heights with its extravagant orchestration and a melodramatic narrative celebrating teenage rebellion. This episode of the CLASSIC ALBUMS series recounts the making of this monumental work through interviews, archival footage, and live performances of album tracks such as "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth," "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad," and, of course, the adolescent opus "Paradise by the Dashboard Light."
