AllMusic Review by

In 1977, a little-known singer and actor with the unlikely name of Meat Loaf released a record called Bat out of Hell, and against all odds it became one of the biggest-selling albums of all time, elevating the former Marvin Lee Aday to rock superstardom. This documentary, produced for the VH1 "Classic Albums" series, incorporated interviews and performance footage to show how Meat Loaf and his collaborators -- including songwriter Jim Steinman, producer Todd Rundgren, and vocalists Ellen Foley and Karla DeVito -- helped to craft a 30-million selling blockbuster. Songs include "Two out of Three Ain't Bad," "Paradise by the Dashboard Light," and "Bat out of Hell."
