About this deal

One of its lyrics is "You're never alone, 'cause you can put on the 'phones and let the drummer tell your heart what to do. Its musical style is influenced by Steinman's appreciation of Richard Wagner, Phil Spector and Bruce Springsteen. On the 25th anniversary version of Bat Out of Hell, one of the bonus live tracks, "Great Boleros of Fire", is an instrumental version of another song from Neverland titled "Gods". Guitars still are a little too beafy, but they are less noisy as their distorsion is much more limpid now.

As I experienced how catapulted this album sounds in the multichannel format, I only regret this superb remaster did not receive a similar treatment with more than two channels. In a 1999 documentary celebrating the original album, Meat Loaf said that Bat Out of Hell polarized people: "Some hate it, and some worship it.The low end is a little muddier, by comparison, and after listening to the stereo mix for decades, the shift to a multi-channel mix can take a little getting used to. When she opened it Christmas day her first request was for me to feed the SA-CD some Meat Loaf and set her heart on fire. Steve Popovich, the head of Cleveland International Records, was relentless in his efforts to get Epic and all of CBS Records and radio on board. In one 1989 interview with Classic Rock magazine, Steinman labeled Todd Rundgren "the only genuine genius I've ever worked with. Unlike the original, where the epic loud songs were "offset by the softness of stuff like ' Two Out of Three Ain't Bad'.

Given how much I dig this masterpiece I took it quite personally and seriously when I saw this new remaster was out. The first disc contains the original album remastered and the second a live version of the original Bat Out of Hell album plus "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)", compiled from the various B-sides from the album's singles. The second rendition of Bat Out of Hell is appaulling, they sshould have just left us with the first version. The MC mix, to me, has fallen from an experienced bliss to a sweet memory : due to space problems I had to get rid of my multichannel system and get back to a stereo one (though I intend to get to multichannel again in the future).Steinman and Meat Loaf, who were touring with the National Lampoon show, felt that three songs were "exceptional" and Steinman began to develop them as part of a seven-song set they wanted to record as an album.

Out of desperation, another E Street Band member, Steve Van Zandt, and Sonenberg arranged to contact Cleveland International Records, a subsidiary of Epic Records.Bat Out of Hell is the 1977 debut album by American rock singer Meat Loaf and composer Jim Steinman. the parent label of Bearsville, was impressed, but other senior people rejected them after they performed live.
