It is an interesting documentary as it goes into detail about how the songs were written, how the tracks were recorded layer by layer and then how the record itself was marketed as well as there being interviews with Meat Loaf, Jim Steinman, Todd Rundgren, Rory Dodd, Ellen Foley and, of course, Kasim Sulton. (Kasim played bass on all but one track of Bat Out of Hell and sings background vocals on the track Bat Out of Hell.)
Kasim's second segment in the show is when the marketing of the album is being discussed and how unfashionable that type of music was at that time. Kasim says "You have to remember that in 1977 it was the dawning of punk ..... well maybe punk had been around for a couple of years by then but it really had come into itís own at that point ..... The Sex Pistols, The Clash and all that stuff. There was also the disco emergence, The Hustle, The Rock the Boat and all that dance music was just coming out."
Many thanks to the kind person (who wishes to remain anonymous) that provided all the photos of Kasim from the Classic Album video.
