Bat Out Of Hell


Bat Out of Hell is a rock classic, it was just one of those special unique albums that artists occasionally pull out of themselves.  It was unlike anything else at the time or since.

Check out the DVD on the making of Bat Out of Hell, there is fantastic bit where Jim Steinman explains how Todd Rundgren used a guitar to record the bike accident that Meatloaf didn’t have the budget to put in. Once you know it is a guitar it is obvious but when I was getting into the album in the late 70’s I had no clue.
