Background: Released in August, 1987 The $5.98 EP/Garage Days Re-Revisited was the band’s first release following the death of original bassist Cliff Burton.
The EP reached #18 on the U.S. charts.
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.
