What is this and what can I do with it?

Something just arrived in the mail and we’re not really sure what it is. Sure it has “Metallica” name on it, but it doesn’t fit in any devices in the office and in the house.

Upon further inspections, we have a 1987 German pressing of Metallica “The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited” CD in our collections. Now to think of it, we also had the Vinyl, but we couldn’t find it.

Metallica “The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited” Remastered is slated for release on April 13, 2018.

The Remastered EP is coming in Vinyl, CD and Cassette Tape. Yeah, sadly we know what Cassette and 8-Track Tapes are; that’s because we used to work at a radio station in the Mid-90’s.

The Cassette Tape and the Vinyls pre-orders were sold out at Metallica.com. They might have some of them on the release day, Friday, April 13, 2018.
