During lockdown, I have been trolling Ebay more often than usual and I saw this tape for auction. It was listed as “Metallica Demo”, but when I saw the tape, I knew exactly what it was… and I know Ron’s handwriting from trading tapes with him back in the 80s. I was able to snag it for kinda cheap to share here. This is the best quality recording I have heard from the old Rampage Radio shows.
Side note: You will hear Ian or Ron talk about The Sweet at one point- this video was blocked because of the Sweet content, so I had to edit it out.
Recorded by: Ron Quintana
