From the German edition booklet:
Wherever I May Roam: Produced by Bob Rock with Hetfield & Ulrich.

Fade to Black: Recorded live September 28, 1991 at Tushino Airfield, Moscow, Russia, by Fleetwood Mobiles. Mixed by Randy Staub.
Original version available on Ride The Lightning.

Wherever I May Roam (Demo): Obviously not produced. Recorded in Lars' basement, August 13, 1990.
One of our earliest demos, this track is distinguished by the fact that we all knew the song had to be called "Wherever I May Roam" 'cause those were just about the only lyrics James had worked out! This is a typical example of how we work with James only coming up with the vocal melodies and the rest of us having to continuously suffer through hearing about something or somebody named Wa na na. Once again, the only two Metallica's present were James and Lars... which means it's James playing the guitar 'solo'.
