…And Justice For All (2018 Reissues)

Bang Your Heads Like It Is 1988… again!

The reissue and expanded version of “…And Justice For All” is coming on November 2, 2018.

Thanks to Metallica.com, we get the Cassette and 3CD versions a little bit early; the Box Set is scheduled to arrive on the release date.

…And Justice For All” (Wikipedia) was originally released on August 25, 1988. It was the first full-length record featuring Jason Newsted on bass, filling in for Cliff Burton who was tragically killed in a bus accident on September 27, 1986. The song “One” is notable for being the first video single from Metallica. It was also nominated and won for the first Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance.

This reissue is remastered but not remixed. For those who hoped for the bass tracked to be turned up in the mixed shouldn’t hold their breath.

The Cassette version also comes with MP3 Download card.

Restringing EVH Wolfgang HT

One thing that every guitar playing person need to know is to restring the guitar. This past week alone I have two High E Strings broken on my EVH Wolfgang HT.

I had been having trouble with D’Addario EXL120 High E Strings and I’m for now switching back to Ernie Ball Super Slinky (9-42).

I also used D’Addario NS Micro Clip-On Tuner to tune the guitar.

I took my time to restring the guitar and did it right. It really made me appreciate the work that guitar techs do.
