Metallica‘s 1987 EP The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited has been remastered and will be reissued in April.
This collection featured the band covering songs by early Metallica influencers such as Killing Joke, Budgie, Diamond Head and The Misfits. Thanks to chart format running-time ‘rules’ this was a four-track EP in the UK (no Killing Joke), so this new five-track edition is effectively making its debut in Britain.
To add to the nostalgia factor, this is being issued in a lenticular ‘longbox’. The CD longbox was American anomaly and was devised to allow retailers to display the then new CD format in 12-inch vinyl racking.
The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited will be reissued on 13th April 2018.
