HOME VIDEOS

CLIFF 'EM ALL

Release Date: December 4, 1987
Produced by: Curt Marvis, Jeff Richter
Directors: Jea Pellerin, Doug Freel
Recorded at: Various Concerts between 1983 and 1986

Cliff 'Em All was originally released in late 1987 featuring bootleg concert footage taken between 1983 and 1986. The video was released to celebrate the three and a half years Cliff was in the band.

This is what the band had to say about the video:

Well we finally went and did what we always talked about not doing, releasing a vid!! Before you throw up in disgust let us (except K___) tell you the idea behind this.

First of all this is not your typical shit home vidio (it's worse) done with high-tech 10-camera production and sound. It's a compilation of bootleg footage shot by sneaky Metallifux, stuff shot for T.V. that was never used, but we've held onto, home footage, personal fotos & us drunk.

But most important, it's really a look back at the 3 1/2 years that Cliff was with us and includes his best bass solos and the home footage & pix, that we feel best capture his unique personality and style.

The quality in some places ain't that happening but the feeling is there and that's what matters!!

 

2 OF ONE

Release Date: June 20, 1989
Director: Michael Soloman

To commemorate the success of Metallica's first promotional video, the band released this video including both versions of the One video. In addition to the two videos, the video includes a five-minute introduction by Lars.

Director: Wayne Isham

Filmed during the course of the Poor Touring Me '96-'97 tour, Cunning Stunts captures a two night stay in Fort Worth, TX. Filmed with the DVD format clearly in mind, the Cunning Stunts DVD features over 140 minutes of concert footage, band interviews, documentaries, and behind-the-scenes footage. Cunning Stunts features three multi-angle songs (Bitch, Bellz, and Roam), which allows the viewer to choose their favorite band member and follow them around for the whole song. Also included on the DVD is a photo gallery section with almost 1,000 photos from every stop of the tour. The VHS release captures only the concert performance.

 

S&M

Release Date: November 23, 1999
Produced by: Bob Rock with Hetfield, Ulrich, & Kamen
Director: Wayne Isham
Recorded at: Berkeley Community Theatre, Berkeley, CA

"Did you hear the one about the rock band that wanted to play with the symphony?" S&M documents the historic collaboration between Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. The S&M DVD brings that concert into your home in full Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.

The DVD is filled with various extras, aside from the concert in its entirety. There is a 41-minute documentary, featuring a look into the making of S&M, including behind the scenes footage, interviews with Metallica, Michael Kamen, the SF Symphony, and much more. Much like Cunning Stunts, S&M features four multi-angle songs (Wolf, Fuel, Sad, and Sandman), which allows the viewer to choose their favorite band member and follow them around for the whole song. In addition to the concert, as you've heard on the album, you can also listen to separate stereo tracks for the band and for the orchestra. Also included are two additional versions of "No Leaf Clover" (Slice & Dice video version & Maestro Edit)

The VHS release of the concert was available in a limited edition double VHS set, with the behind the scenes documentary filling the second video. The single video release captures only the concert performance.
