Long out of print for nearly 30-years, the classic 1987 EP The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited has returned! This five-song limited edition cassette was remastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, Hollywood, CA.
Following Cliff Burton’s death, Metallica took some time off and initiated new bassist Jason Newsted with a raw, unpolished EP of covers originally recorded by Diamond Head, Holocaust, Killing Joke, Budgie, and the Misfits. Most fit the band’s style quite well; only “Last Caress” sounds out of place, as the original seemed looser and more dangerous. As a showcase for some strong metal riffs and material by mostly underground bands, the EP works quite well.
