In America, this was the second single released from the Bat Out Of Hell
album. The first single, "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth
," didn't chart, but by the time "Two Out of Three" was issued in March 1978, the album was picking up steam and the song rose up the charts, peaking at #11 on July 8.
The single was edited down to 3:58 from the 5:23 album version.
