Bat Out Of Hell (Classic Albums)
Since its release in 1977, Bat Out Of Hell has gone on to sell an estimated 30 million copies and has become one of the top five biggest selling albums of all time. Released during the days of the disco boom and the advent of Punk Rock, Bat Out Of Hell totally bucked the musical trends of the day, yet as Meat Loaf recalls is "More honest than 99% of all records released."
The remarkable story of Bat Out Of Hell is told here 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 Bat Out Of Hell's "Wall of Sound".
Featuring archive footage, interviews and live performances, plus many of Bat Out Of Hell's finest songs, including Paradise By The Dashboard Light, You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night), Heaven Can Wait and Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad; this is the compelling story of the making of one of rock music's finest hours, a true Classic Album.
