180g Audiophile Black Vinyl! Has there ever been a bigger, more epic, theatrical hard rockin' album than Bat Out Of Hell (1977)? Containing seven little masterpieces written by classically trained pianist and composer Jim Steinman, with Todd Rundgren on the production seat, this seminal Meat Loaf album continues to amaze to this day. The record is deemed one of the best selling albums ever with over 30 million units sold.
"You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night)", the album's B-side opener "Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad" and of course "Paradise By The Dashboard Light" can you imagine a wedding without at least one of these classics? Steinman continued to work with the likes of Bonnie Tyler ("Total Eclipse Of The Heart"), Sisters Of Mercy, Barbara Streisand and ultimately reunited with Meat Loaf for the Bat Out Of Hell sequel in 1993.
This awesome album will see the light as a limited first pressing on hellish red vinyl!
"There is no other album like Bat Out of Hell, unless you want to count the sequel. This is Grand Guignol pop -- epic, gothic, operatic, and silly, and it's appealing because of all of this. Jim Steinman was a composer without peer, simply because nobody else wanted to make mini-epics like this. And there never could have been a singer more suited for his compositions than Meat Loaf..." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
