EP of cover songs to "break-in" new member Jason Newsted.

The back cover (or CD booklet) bears the (non)credit "Not Very Produced by Metallica".

Originally titled The $5.98 EP (for the vinyl version), then later The $9.98 CD.

The Garage Days Re-Revisited (sub)title is a reference to side B of the Creeping Death single.

The Paralex song "White Lightning" was also to be recorded, but later dropped.

After "Last Caress/Green Hell" has ended, there are a few seconds of Metallica covering, deliberately out of key, the intro to Iron Maiden's "Run to the Hills", then it's faded out. Iron Maiden responded to this in 1992 on the B-Side to Be Quick or Be Dead.

Long-out of print, it is considered a collector's item.
Eleven years after its release, all five tracks were included on the double-album Garage Inc. (along with numerous other covers the band had recorded over the years, and some specially recorded for that release).

Recording information:

Recorded and mixed at A&M and Conway in Los Angeles, California.
