This one-off project was come up with by US producer Jim Steinman (b. 1 November 1948, Claremont, California, USA) to record his rock and roll opera, Initial Sin. The music group presented Roy Bittan (piano), Jeff Bova (synthesizers), Jim Bralower (drums), Eddie Martinez (acoustic guitar) and Steve Buslowe (bass). Employing a series of visitor vocalists, who included Elaine Caswell, Ellen Foley, Gina Taylor, Deliria Crazy, Holly Sherwood and Laura Theodore, Initial Sin was a grandiose idea recording themed on sex. Featuring traditional interludes, spoken introductions, atmospheric ballads and breathtaking rock and roll ‘n’ roll, it had been almost as well ambitious. Despite state-of-the-art creation (thanks to Steinman), it by no means received the type of acknowledgement afforded his Meats Loaf projects.
