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.

Some versions omit "The Wait".

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.

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, & Conway, Los Angeles.
