Bat Out Of Hell released in 77

October 21, 2019

October 21, 1977 the first Meat Loaf album ‘Bat Out of Hell’ was released. The album has sold over 43 million copies around the world.  It has spawned two sequel albums. Jim Steinman (wrote the album) is credited with the album cover concept, which was illustrated by Richard Corben.  ‘Jim and Meat’ was an original working title for the album. Baseball legend Phil Rizzuto did the commentary on Paradise By The Dashboard Light. It’s his second take that was featured on the album. Rizzuto made his name as a player with the New York Yankees, and Meat Loaf grew up as a Yankees fan. It cost $235,000 to record the album.
