Meat Loaf's Dead Ringer (1981) is the second of his three albums written entirely by Jim Steinman, among which Bat Out Of Hell [MOVLP1018] was the first.

Once again, Jim Steinman wrote extended, operatic songs with hyperbolic lyrics and organized a backup band anchored by E Street Band members Max Weinberg (drums) and Roy Bittan (keyboards), while Meat Loaf sang with a passion all the more compelling for its hint of the ridiculous.

Four singles were released from Dead Ringer: "Dead Ringer For Love", "I'm Gonna Love Her For Both Of Us", "Read 'Em And Weep" and "Peel Out". The album reached #1 in the UK. The title track, featuring a perfectly cast Cher as duet singer, went Top Ten.
