Vinyl is back as we close out the re-issue series with the final three albums all in the pipeline now. First up is "Garage Inc." available in the Official Metallica Store this Thursday, February 24 and at your favorite record store next week on Tuesday, March 1 in North America. It hits the streets one month later on March 28 in the rest of the world, but you can pre-order it now here: Garage Inc. 3LP - Garage Inc. 6LP
Just like the previous releases, there will be two packages. Because "Garage Inc." was originally released as a double CD, the vinyl sets will include a three disc gatefold package for the 33.3 version and a box set with six discs for the 180 gram, 45 rpm deluxe edition. All the music was half speed mastered from the original analog tapes at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood, CA to bring you audiophile quality.
A limited edition pressing of 100 copies of a white vinyl version of the deluxe box set will be available for MetClub members and on www.becausesoundmatters.com on this Thursday, February 24 at 1:00 PM PST
"S & M" is up next . . . look for that release in April.
