Band Photo: Metallica (?)
A limited-edition vinyl copy of METALLICA's "Ride the Lightning" LP, featuring the band's logo in red, was recently sold on eBay for a whopping $2,247! The LP was apparently one of only 500 copies that were pressed up in 1989 by the band's European record label, Phonogram/Vertigo, and features an individual numbering sticker. You can view the auction page here.
Commented the seller: "I bought this record from a friend who owned a record shop back in early '90s when I lived in Germany.It was unused and all new when I bought it, but I don't think it came shrinkwrapped. I have only played it a couple of times, and besides that it has been in my vinyl shelfs for 16 years or something now! The sleeve shows signs of age, but it's nothing major. Anyway, I think it will be a long time untill you will see this one for sale on eBay again!!"
