Track Listing:

1. BBC 4 UK TV “Meatloaf: In and Out of Hell” (BBC Documentary) 9th of January 2015: Since the release of the Bat Out of Hell album, Meat Loaf has possessed the kind of international status that few artists obtain. His larger-than-life persona and performances are fuelled by a passion for theatre and storytelling. This candid profile reveals the man and his music through his own testimony and from the accounts of those closest to him.

Meat Loaf’s life story is one of epic proportions – he survived a childhood of domestic violence only to face years of record company rejection before eventually finding global fame. Along the way he experienced bankruptcy, health scares, bust-ups and one of the greatest comebacks of all time. All this and more is explored in the film, which features behind-the-scenes footage of his recent Las Vegas residency, plus plans for a new album featuring songs by Jim Steinman.

The film also revisits the Dallas of Meat Loaf’s early years and includes insights from his high school friends, who reveal how Meat really got his famous moniker.

After his mother died, Meat Loaf fled Texas for the bright lights of LA. He sang in itinerant rock bands, but no-one would give him a recording contract. By 1969 he was broke and disillusioned. His break would take the form of a musical. He was offered a part in Hair, having been invited to audition whilst working as a parking attendant outside the theatre. Shortly afterwards he met Jim Steinman and the road to success really began. Yet the Hair gig was the beginning of an enduring love affair with theatre that is reflected in his singing persona today.

His first album, the now legendary Bat Out of Hell, was initially rejected by scores of record companies, yet went on to spend a staggering 485 weeks in the UK charts. The whole album is a masterwork of storytelling that Meat Loaf and Steinman worked on for four years and then battled to get heard. Meat Loaf and those who worked on the album – from Todd Rundgren to Ellen Foley – reflect on the songs, and celebrate the alchemy that resulted in such a blistering back catalogue.

When Bat Out Of Hell II was finally released 15 years after the first album, it defied industry expectations, with I’d Do Anything for Love reaching number one in 28 countries. It is considered one of the greatest comebacks in music history. More albums and hits were to follow across the ’90s and ’00s, alongside a varied and successful acting career. Mark Kermode examines some of the roles Meat Loaf made his own, in films as diverse as The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Fight Club.

Having traversed the peaks and troughs of a career spanning the best part of 50 years, this consummate performer finally reveals what spurs him on, in this, the inside story of a bat out of hell who continues to blaze a trail into the hearts and minds of millions.

    SERVICE: Excellent! Fast ship!! I ordered on the weekend and had the DVD in my hands just days later. Great service and great product. I’m a happy customer and look forward to ordering more from Music Video Resource.

    VALUE: Very reasonable (and these are rare, hard-to-find Meat Loaf titles). This applies to the shipping cost as well. And adding a second title to my order, added only a minimal cost to the shipping.

    MEAT LOAF In and Out of Hell DVD (2014 Documentary):

    AUDIO and VIDEO QUALITY: Excellent! Crisp and clear.

    CONTENT: Excellent! If you’re a Meat Loaf fan, you don’t want to miss out on this (both the main feature – i.e., the documentary – as well as the bonus tracks on the DVD).

    Last month I read Meat’s autobiography. It was neat to see (in the documentary), some of the people and places he mentioned in the book.

    REVIEW OF the bonus features on the DVD:
    BONUS Music Video Anthology & Live Performances 1979-1989:

    AUDIO and VIDEO QUALITY: Very, very good – excellent considering that some of it dates back to 1979.

    CONTENT: I really enjoyed it.

    When I popped the DVD into the player, the chapters came up on the screen; but I just hit “play” because I planned to watch the main feature (the documentary) from start to finish in one sitting. Because of that, I didn’t read the chapter titles at first, and assumed they were just chapters in the documentary (I guess I was thinking the bonus features had been incorporated into the main feature somehow).

    So as I was watching the main feature, which incorporated parts of different live performances and videos (i.e,. parts of songs) from Meat Loaf’s career, I was making mental notes to try to find this video or that video to purchase at some point on DVD (e.g., Meat Loaf’s complete performance from The Old Grey Whistle Test). So I was thrilled when I realized that all of the chapters (after chapter one, which was the documentary itself) were the bonus features – which turned out to be complete performances and videos of some (or maybe all?) of the songs featured in the documentary – including The Old Grey Whistle Test.

    If you buy this DVD (which I recommend), make sure not to miss those chapters (i.e., the bonus features) after you watch the documentary itself, since those chapters ARE the bonus features.

    Review Feb. 2024: Meat Loaf DVD “In & Out of Hell” 2014 Documentary plus official music videos. A great addition to my collection. Finally, a complete and all-inclusive footage of the original 2014 TV documentary. I would say a “must have” for fans of Meat Loaf. Meat Loaf was one of the most unique and tremendous artist of our generation. What is currently aired on TV is an edited version and leaves important mentions in the documentary completely lost and unaired. However; with this DVD you see it complete!! Also, the extra official Meat Loaf music videos that support the documentary were included which made it all more enjoyable. Audio and Video are fantastic. Ordering is easy and shipping was fast. I hope to see more Meat Loaf videos in the future. Highly Recommended.
