==== METALLICA AND THE OLYMPIC ====================================
OK, OK, I am not much of a sport fanatic, but I got the following 
piece of news from Toru Harada 

Hey,I was watching the Sydney olympics on the syncronized swimming, 
and the australian team used the intro of nothing else matters, in 
the middle of their performance. 
   Thanks to: Toru Harada 

==== NEW QUIZ AND WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT =============================
The new quiz on http://www.encycmet.com is already up and running

To all those of you who tried to win last months quiz, but didn't
win, there is a new quiz up now, with a new chance. Last months
winner was Matt Hagen from New York, USA. Matt, your package will
be in the mail later today, so expect it soon

The prize for October will be an Australian version of the "Hero 
Of The Day" CD single.  including the rare "Outta B Sides Mix", has
for tracks and comes with a sticker. A nice collectors item. Get it
at http://www.encycmet.com 

==== NEW PROMOTIONAL ITEMS RELEASED ===============================
OK, Metallica will not release more singles for a while, at least 
not to the public, but some promotional items still sees the light 
of day these days. Two of the latest is a new 3 track promo single 
of "I disappear" with songs by Santana as well, pluss a promo DVD 
video sampler. 

### "I disappear" - Mexican split promo single
   1. Santana - Put your lights on 
   2. Santana - African bamba 
   3. Metallica - I'll disappear 

A promo split single released for radio airplay in Mexico. There are
3 songs on it, two by Santana and one by Metallica. There are two 
fronts on the paper cover, one for each band and it has also a fold-
out with tracklisting. Not much info on the sleeve. Catalogue number 
is COX-2289 and it is released by Arista. I don't know the print run, 
but my guess is 1000 or 500. If you are a collector like me, you 
might want to check out Esprit to see if they still have it in stock.

### "The Metallica DVD collection sampler"
   1. Of wolf and man (From S&M) 
   2. Fuel (From S&M) 
   3. Sad but true (From S&M) 
   4. Enter sandman (From Cunning stunts) 
   5. For whom the bell tolls (From A year and a half...) 
   6. Seek & destroy (From Cliff 'em all) 

Promotional DVD or video samplers are rarely released. I know that 
several ordinary MTV style videos has been released on VHS in 
England, but nothing else. This is the first DVD promotional 
sampler I have ever seen. The cover has the same size as a regular 
CD and is very cool. The Plastic "digi-pack" is all black with the 
logo and the ninja-star. The fold out has the tracklisting and 
some information about the DVDs released by the band. From "Cliff 
'em all" to "S&M". 

My guess is that this DVD was released to promote the re-released 
videos on DVD earlier this year. You will not find it in regular 
shops, but Esprit or other collectors shop might have it, but 
expect to pay a lot for it as it is already very rare. 

The disc features an on-screen DVD catalog and it is also possible 
to play the songs in a loop. All songs are in stereo 2.0, but the 
tunes from S&M can also be played in 5.1 surround with multi 
angled cameras. Recomended for "completist collectors", else buy 
the regular DVDs which should be a lot cheaper.

==== RECORDING TV SHOW, NOT MUSIC =================================
Last week we had a piece of news, or should I say rumor, telling 
that Metallica was in the One to One studio, where they did "...And 
Justice for All" and "The Black Album", to record songs for the next
album. Well, they were in the studio September 26 - 27 in San 
Francisco but not to record new music. Here is what metallica.com 

Truth Is: Last week, Metallica spent two days at One on One studios 
filming an episode of VH1's "Classic Albums." 

Over the years, the BBC has produced 9 "Classic Albums" episodes 
that have been licensed to VH1 for broadcasting. These episodes cover 
an album that have had a major impact in both the music industry and 
for music fans around the world. In the past, the BBC have covered 
albums by U2 (The Joshua Tree), Fleetwood Mac (Rumors), and Jimi 
Hendrix (Are You Experienced?). The time has come for Metallica's 
Black Album to be revisited. 

On Tuesday September 26th, all four members of Metallica gathered in 
the same room for the first time since the ending of the Summer 
Sanitarium tour. They returned to the studio where they recorded 1988's 
...And Justice for All album as well as 1991's Black Album. 

Upon entering the studio, James shouted out... - "Do you guys remember, 
that's where we shot darts at the picture of Kip Winger" 

It took two days to record the band's footage for the Classic Albums 
episode. In addition to interviews with James, Lars, Kirk, and Jason, 
the BBC also interviewed the recording team of Bob Rock (producer) 
and Randy Staub (engineer) and, of course, a few Metallica fans. 

Unfortunately, there is no word on an air date yet. encycmet.com has 
contacted VH1 about this and we promisse to give you any updates as 
soon as we know
