Bonnie Tyler - East West Box Set, and Making Love Out Of Nothing At All music video
Way back in 1995, Jim Steinman collaborated with Bonnie Tyler on two recordings of his songs -
Making Love Out Of Nothing At All, and Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad.
They were released on the album "Free Spirit", but that has been out of print for many years by now.
But here in 2021, Bonnie Tyler is releasing a 3CD box set of her work on that record label, making
those tracks available once more. Not only that, but it contains all the single remixes of these songs.
So in total, this box set contains FOUR versions of Making Love Out Of Nothing At All, and SEVEN
versions of Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad!
The album "Bonnie Tyler : The East West Years 1995-1998" is released on September 17, 2021, both
digitally and physically on CD.
The music video for Making Love Out Of Nothing At All has also been remastered and released on Bonnie
Tyler's YouTube channel. Check it out!

- Paul Zollo, American Songwriter

this week and will be arriving as fast as the mails will allow.

If you are in Europe and you would like to offer Fighting Words for sale, you can get the CD from
distributors, including in the Netherlands.
It's a rocking collection of eleven tracks mostly written by her longtime collaborator, Paul Foglino.
The album's first single, "I'm Just Happy to Be Here," finds Ellen duetting with
Karla DeVito. Both women were featured vocalists during Meat Loaf's mega-platinum
Bat Out of Hell period (1977). Additional guests on Fighting Words include bassist C. P. Roth
(Ozzy Osbourne, Suzanne Vega, Garland Jeffreys), drummer Steve Goulding (Graham Parker & The Rumour,
The Mekons), vocalist Ula Hedwig (Darlene Love, Bette Midler), and many other stellar artists. The
album features Ellen's covers of Wilson Pickett's "I Found a Love" and Jim Steinman's
"Heaven Can Wait."
Andrew Polec's Legacy Of Love
Does this man need any introduction? He spent years starring as Strat in Bat Out Of Hell The Musical,
performed as Baal in the Dream Engine at the Amherst College reunion 50 years after Jim Steinman played
the role himself. He is the man Jim Steinman fondly referred to as "The Miracle".
Andrew Polec is doing a solo show! And you can buy a ticket and watch it streamed!
Tickets are available
for $25 US dollars - stream live, or on demand - whichever is your preference.
Live debut viewing party on Friday, July 30, 2021 at 2:30 pm (Eastern), hosted by Andrew Polec.
Video available until August 28.
Following a month where Holding Out For A Hero was featured in a trailer for the new Netflix series
Masters of the Universe : Revelation, a trailer for an upcoming Marvel Comics
Guardians Of The Galaxy video game, and in a scene in the hit Disney+ TV series Loki,
the song has been certified Platinum in the UK!
“Are You Good Enough” so rocks right out of the gate that it is thrilling. And this thrill
expanded even more as I listened to it the first time. And also the next thousand-plus times. It is the
kind of rock and roll we’ve missed: essential and pure.
The wide array of talent has delivered a diverse, radio-friendly collection of eleven songs. First
single “I’m Just Happy to Be Here” is a jubilant sugar rush featuring Foley duetting with fellow
Meat Loaf alumnae Karla DeVito. “Leave Him Janie” is a tender rocker that evokes the storied days of
Laurel Canyon. “I’ll Be True” and Foley’s cover of Wilson Pickett’s “I Found a Love” are emotive
rhythm & blues infused with the girl group harmonies which enraptured Foley as a youth in St.
Louis. “I Call My Pain by Your Name” is Foglino’s convincing take on country blues. And while the
record is primarily an organic-sounding, roots-rock affair, the closing track, Foley’s version
of Meat Loaf’s “Heaven Can Wait,” finds the vocalist closing the curtain with an altogether
different dramatic flair. Although Foley did not contribute to the original version of this
Steinman-penned track from Bat Out of Hell, she now makes it fully her own, with a dramatic,
show-stopping solo vocal performance.
The album, Fighting Words, is available for presale (digital download and physical CD) on Bandcamp. The release date is August 6, 2021.
Bat Out Of Hell The Musical - 2021 - 2022 UK and Ireland tour announcements
Huge tour announcement for Bat Out Of Hell The Musical today! More venues than originally planned. Notice the gap in dates Nov - Dec 2021? That's when the Australian tour will happen!
New single and album from Ellen Foley : Fighting Words
Ellen Foley has a new single out now, and an album coming out soon.
The album will be called FIGHTING WORDS and will be released on August 6, 2021. It will
be 11 tracks long, closing out with her version of Jim Steinman's Heaven Can Wait.
You can pre-order it digitally right now, on Bandcamp
where you will be able to stream or download the tracks in top quality. Pre-orders are priced at $10 (USD) and you get 1 track now and the rest on release day.
The single is called "I'm Just Happy To Be Here" and features Karla DeVito singing alongside her. It's
available digitally on most platforms (Spotify, Apple, YouTube Music, Soundcloud, Bandcamp),
or from her own website.
In her words:
“Every song on Fighting Words could represent something I’ve made it through in life,
whether it be personal relationships or experiences I’ve had as a singer and actress,” said
Foley. “My songwriter, Paul Foglino, is well acquainted with the peaks and valleys of my history.
He does an amazing job interpreting them into songs for me to sing. As for the album title, let’s
just say that I was not a fan of the previous presidential administration. There is a definite
undercurrent of resistance in songs like ‘Leave Him Janie’ or ‘This Won’t Last
