Product Description:

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."

Description by Image Entertainment:

Since its release in 1977, "Bat Out of Hell" has sold an estimated 30 million copies and become one of the five biggest selling albums of all time. Released during the days of disco and punk rock, "Bat Out of Hell" bucked those musical trends, and as Meat Loaf recalls, the record 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 DeVito, together with others who helped in the construction of "Bat Out of Hell's" "wall of sound." Featuring archival footage, interviews and live performances, this is the compelling story of one of rock music's finest hours. Includes the songs "Bat Out of Hell," "Paradise By the Dashboard Light," "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad," "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night)."
