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. Bat Out of Hell is often compared to the music of Bruce Springsteen, particularly the album Born to Run. The original recording is too bad to possibly result in a perfect version as we can (or could) get with other rock classics, whatever the dedication. To me, the stereo version really does not sound any different than the RBCD version, either original or remastered.

Steinman had secured a contract with Meat Loaf's recording label MCA for Lorraine Crosby, a club singer from North East England whom he was managing. This version has a new DSD master direct from original master tapes done in November 2018 by Kevin .

The result is yet another reason to put the album on repeat for it is a rare occasion when I listen to this masterpiece only once. However, having owned and listened to both the stereo-only version and the multi-channel version, in my opinion the multi-channel is hands down the version to own. Bat Out of Hell has sold over 43 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time.

When Rundgren discovered that the deal with RCA did not actually exist, Albert Grossman, who had been Bob Dylan's manager, offered to put it on his Bearsville label but needed more money. They felt that similarities to the design of the first album, including Meat Loaf's name in Gothic typography, would entice consumers of the 1977 album to purchase this.a b "500 Greatest Albums of All Time Rolling Stone's definitive list of the 500 greatest albums of all time". We try to list as many as possible, but the chances are that you'll want a Bat Out Of Hell album from near the top. However, some people misunderstand the lyrics, claiming that the singer never identifies what the "that" is that he is unwilling to do, a confusion that Steinman predicted during production. Plus, and this will drive vinyl purists insane, I thoroughly enjoy the Hi-Res Lossless stream, an Apple Digital Master, from Apple Music.

Finding themselves without a record contract, but needing one to work with Rundgren, they told the producer that they had been signed to RCA, who had actually rejected them on the basis of their desire to use Rundgren as producer.

The Des Moines Register thought that the album was "wallowing in excess so gratuitous as to make Michael Bolton, by comparison, seem a master of understatement. Right at the beginning of the first track, you can hear the drums very well, nice tom-tom rolls with real attack (the snapping noise made by the stick when it hits the drum’s skin) and nicely developed sustain (the low-frequency resonance of the skin). Todd Rundgren asserts that it was "underpromoted", having a reputation of being "damaged goods because it had been walked around to so many places.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. Meat Loaf remained the last artist to have two top-ten UK singles at the same time until the Manic Street Preachers in 2001.

The phrase that inspired the song's title, "bat out of hell," can be traced back to the Greek playwright Aristophanes' 414 BC work entitled The Birds. AllMusic suggest that although the album deserves the attention, "the extra disc of material is [not] worth the time of anyone outside of fanatics. 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. Show Your Personality - So much of your persona can be directly linked to your favourite musicians; this gold disc display will proudly reflect it.For example, citing the narrative of "Paradise", Rundgren jokes that he can't imagine Steinman being at a lakeside with the most beautiful girl in school, but he can imagine Steinman imagining it.
