Geoffrey_Feakes Meatloaf Bat_Out_Of_Hell Book
This edition of Rock Classics examines the individual songs that make up the classic 1977 release, Bat Out of Hell.
 
Dealing with the album’s conception, recording, reception, subsequent tour, and legacy, the book also traces the backstory of its creators Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf (and their work, together and apart, that followed in the album’s wake). 
 
Includes passages on Bat’s two successors, released in 1993 and 2006 respectively, and Bat Out of Hell: The Musical, which premiered in 2017.
