"This is taken from the second show back after Jaymz' barbeque party in Montreal, and is the "vinyl" (?!) debut of Metallica as a five-piece - featuring Jaymz' somewhat permanent guitar stand-by, and the scapegoat for everybody's mistakes, John Marshall.

"This is the 5th installment of demo versions we/you wish you had never heard... and guess what? We're all out of clever/stupid liner notes. N.B! Same credits as all the previous crap... i.e. Jaymz - rhythm guitar, "vocals," and guitar "solo." Lars - drums. Kirk & Jason - day off!!!"
