Metallica has just released a reissue of “The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited.” First out in August of 1987, the EP came sandwiched between “Master of Puppets” and “… And Justice for All,” packing covers of tunes by Diamond Head, Holocaust, Killing Joke, Budgie and the Misfits. At the time, the EP was a limited release, and it’s been out of print since 1989, which makes this year’s remastered version of major interest. The remastered version is available as a CD and digital download, as well as in various vinyl versions, including a picture disc, as a cassette and in a longbox.
“The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited” – which was remastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood, California – is available via the Metallica store. Other related items for sale include an official “Crash Course in Brain Surgery” scrub shirt and skate deck.
The guys of Metallica are currently touring overseas, and they’ll return to the U.S. to perform at the sixth annual Metallica Night with the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park on April 23rd.
