You are bidding on a out of print, early US pressing copy of the Metallica - Kill 'Em All LP released by Megaforce Records in 1983. This is MRI 069. In the dead wax it is inscribed on side A: MRI-069-A and also STERLING. On side B in the dead wax it is inscribed: MRI-069-B and also STERLING. This record came out of the collection of a central Texas music fan, known to many musicians/fellow music lovers, who tragically lost his life late last year. He frequently attended concerts and shows here in central Texas and elsewhere. He enjoyed meeting musicians and liked to get their autographs, such as this record in particular. It has been signed by all four members of the group who played on this record including Cliff Burton! All four of their signatures can be seen on the front of the jacket and were signed by a blue ballpoint pen. Also, all four members signed the record inner sleeve in different colored markers (see pictures). Above his signature, Cliff Burton wrote "In his house at R'lyea dead Chtulhu waits dreaming". The record is in VG condition. The record labels are in VG+ condition. The record jacket is in VG condition with some shelfwear, edgewear, and ringwear. There are some creases along the spine of the jacket as well as the top and bottom seams, most of which are around an inch or so in length. The record inner sleeve is in VG- condition with some shelfwear and edgewear. The bottom seam of the sleeve has a 5 inch seam split.
