Garage Inc.
In 1987 Metallica released the Garage days EP to introduce Jason Newsted to the fans. This 5 tracker was only available for a limited time and soon became a collectors item. Many bootleg copies were spread, so instead of just releasing the same item again they recorded 11 tunes and added some rare B-side covers. The result is the double CD set called Garage Inc.

In USA malls wount sell albums with nasty language, so Elektra did a cencored "clean version" with a peep where the f-words are supposed to be.

As always you will find something extra in Japan, good quality booklet on the CD and of cource complete set of lyrics.

On the CDR promo, which is probably the first version printed, Track 11 on CD1 is listed as "the more i see (includes hidden track)".
