Meat Loaf Artist Snapshot:

Who would have ever thought that opera-rock fronted by a 300 pound-plus singer would equal massive chart success worldwide? That's exactly what happened with Marvin Aday, better known as Meat Loaf. Along with collaborator/producer Jim Steinman, he created one of rock's biggest and most enduring albums--1977's epic BAT OUT OF HELL. Combining a theater-trained voice as big as his frame (he'd previously acted and sung in ROCK HORROR PICTURE SHOW among others) with Springsteen-plus arena-rock production, Meat Loaf took the world by storm, but faded away shortly thereafter. His massive comeback 16 years later with BAT OUT OF HELL II was a storybook ending that caught the music industry by surprise and earned the singer a Grammy award.

Product Notes

Overwrought and undeniable, Meat Loaf''s Bat out of Hell remains both one of rock''s biggest--and least likely--hit albums. The byproduct of a partnership between beefy singer Marvin Lee "Meat Loaf" Aday and fellow journeyman/National Lampoon Road Show cast member Jim Steinman, Bat out of Hell met 1977''s vaunted Year of Punk with a blast of neo-operatic, Wagnerian-scaled bombast (based on Peter Pan, no less) that was as reactionary as anything the spiked set and their supporters could possibly imagine--13 million units worth, and counting. Bat seems to have thrived on the same formula that''s made Andrew Lloyd Webber a multimillionaire knight: if you do kitsch, do it big. And what could be more kitschy and emblematic of the ''70s than the ubiquitous "classic rock" (an overused adjective that applies all too well here) of "Two out of Three Ain''t Bad" or the breathless nookie-quest, "Paradise by the Dashboard Light," replete with Phil Rizzuto calling the play-by-play? This digitally remastered edition also includes ''78-vintage bonus live cuts of "Bolero" (the live show''s equally over-the-top opener) and "Bat out of Hell" that showcase the production''s energetic, perfectionist bent. The sonic upgrading here also underscores the oft-overlooked efforts of producer Todd Rundgren. --Jerry McCulley
