This album should have been called "Renegade Angel" who knows what the songs could have been like had the song book not being stolen. Some thief is sitting at home with Jim Steinman's lost works. It's probaly hidden in some attic never to be found again.

This album should never have been recorded by Jim. He shouldn't have been so impatient and waited until Meat was ready. He couldn't have been short of a bob or two.

This is true. if he waited two years, by 1983 Meat was back and better then ever and then improved more drastically in 1985.

But I believe it was the record company, not Jim himself, that was rushing production. The Record company wasn't patient and Jim was under contract.

its still one of the most tragic stories in music history. This album had so much potential.

The record company had Dead Ringer to keep them happy. I think BFG was just arrogance on Jim's part.

Meat's voice was gone and he was suffering a mental breakdown around that period too. It certainly wasn't any of Jim's fault. The record company were demanding a follow up to BOOH and Jim had to record Bad for Good himself, because Meat was in no position mentally or vocally to do so. Plus his relationship with Jim was starting to show cracks. Jim either released Bad for good or got his ass sued. You can't say "Oh he should have waited a few years"; when you are contracted to release a record by your record company you bloody well have to. They can buy and sell your ass in a heartbeat. We all know Jim could wait a decade or two to release an album, but Bad For Good had to be done. End of story.

Jim is a good singer, but he was no where near as good as Meat Loaf. I liked BFG for what it was, but it could have been better. Meat from my understanding hated all the songs on Bad for Good when he heard them at the time. Even though he did record most of them in later years.

Who gives you your information or do you just make shit up?

Jim DIDN'T have to record Bad For Good at all. As Evil One mentions, it was arrogance on Jims part that he did.

But Meat WAS to record BFG. He even recorded a few tracks..but his voice was shot, and he had a nervous breakdown. This was all well documented as you know, and Jim had to step in and fill his shoes.

No he didn't, because Meat did record Dead Ringer. Jim chose to step into Meat's shoes.

I think I've read Jim give the answer as option one, but I would suspect a bit of option two must have came into it. Jim has always played the waiting game with everything else.

He was forced to step into Meat's shoes because Meat couldn't record BFG. They were both tied down to record it originally by the record company...but Meat had problems, and had to pull out leaving Jim to tie up the loose ends. That was NOT Jim's choice...the record company were planning the release of the record long before Meat pulled out. When he did the situation never changed; a record had to hit the shelves.

Pudding a nervous breakdown and a mental breakdown are the same thing anyway.
