The album was originally announced as a Metal Hammer compilation that will go on sale as a fan pack in the UK. Of the tracks recorded on the album, many are most excited about Metallica’s take on “When a Blind Man Cries,” a track initially recorded during the Machine Head sessions, but only released as a b-side to “Never Before.” Metallica’s take is above, and we’ve included the original version for posterity’s sake, which you can find after the jump.
