The Wait is over…Actually, it’s back! Nearly three decades after going out of print, Metallica has released a remastered version of ‘The $5.98 EP - Garage Days Re-Revisited’ as part of their ongoing remasters series via their own Blackened Recordings label.
Originally released over 30 years ago on August 21st 1987, the collection features the band covering songs by early Metallica influencers such as Diamond Head, Holocaust, Killing Joke, Budgie, and The Misfits. The five songs from the EP were later included as a part of the 1998 multi-platinum release Garage, Inc., but the band felt it was time to bring it back in the original formats. This marks the first time this specific version is available to UK-based fans as the track “The Wait” was not included on the original version of the EP.
The $5.98 EP - Garage Days Re-Revisited was remastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood, CA.
