A whole lot of fun!
23 January 2005 | by (Palm Desert, California) – See all my reviews

A behind the scenes look at the making of "Bat Out of Hell" with writer Jim Steinman and producer Todd Rundgren providing most of the commentary, along with Ellen Foley, Karla DeVito and Meat Loaf himself. It's not a concert film but a "making of..." type of film with interesting insights into how the album came about...such as how the motorcycle sound in "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" actually came from a guitar played by Rundgren, and why Karla DeVito sounds like Ellen Foley in the classic video of the song. Overall it's a great look at the making of a great album. The people interviewed seem to realize this was a shining moment in their career and all seem willing to participate.
