More than You Deserve (Musical) - 1974
Original Cast More than You Deserve Unknown 1974 SB 9 MP3

Comments: Historic recording of the first time Steinman worked with Meat Loaf in this musical set in a US Army camp during the Vietnam War. Sounds like this is from a live performance rather than demos as there's clearly an audience there.

Broadway Dance of the Vampires [final night] Minskoff Theatre, New York, NY, USA 25/1/03 Cam 9 DVD

Tech Details: NTSC, Full screen / 4:3, Dolby Digital, 133 mins,
Single camera shooting from the balcony with a pretty good view of the central part of the stage. A few bits of heads in the way during wide shots but otherwise fairly unobstructed with some nice close ups Sound is very good to excellent. This is the last night of Jim Steinman's troubled musical in it's Broadway incarnation that included rather too much humour for its own good, some of which is unnecessarily rude. Just see how many references to other Steinman songs you can spot.
