Blind Before I Stop (2014 Remaster)
Release Date: 25/08/2014
* Something of a departure from the harder rocking
approach of 1984’s “Bad Attitude”, and certainly a long
way from the fusion of rock operatics that is the 40 plus
million selling “Bat Out Of Hell”, “Blind Before I Stop”
was originally released in September 1986.
* Whereas previous long players had been a showcase for
Jim Steinman’s skills as a songwriter, one obvious reason
for the switch to a more European direction that fully
embraced 80s production values was the role of producer
Frank Farian, famed for his work with Boney M and later
Milli Vanilli, among others.
* The album features the singles ‘Blind Before I Stop’,
‘Special Girl’ and ‘Rock 'n' Roll Mercenaries’; the latter a
duet with respected rock vocalist John Parr.
* Joining previous Meat Loaf titles "Bad Attitude" and "Live
At Wembley" in the HNE Recordings catalogue, this "Blind
Before I Stop" remaster features extensive liner
notes, rare artwork and memorabilia.
