This has to be the best sounding source from this dreadful gig that became a final chapter to the greatest era in Metallica's history. Sourced from double vinyl bootleg. Gig itself is a total killer, and James back for the first time on rhythm guitar since his skateboard accident. Cliff's last bass solo is simply amazing, I wonder what kind of king size joint he has smoked before that one! A true piece of metal history right here. -Original
Cliff Burton's last show - Luckily, this is the same show James Hetfield returned to playing guitar (I guess he had an injury and was only singing for a while) so we get one last set with the whole band in full. (info by cooperaa - Taken from .

What happened to Cliff? (
During the European leg of the Damage Inc. tour in support of Master of Puppets, the band complained that the sleeping cubicles on their tour bus were unsatisfactory and uncomfortable. To decide who received pick of the bunks, Kirk Hammett and Burton drew cards. On the evening of September 26, 1986, Burton won the game with an Ace of Spades, thereby getting the first choice of bunk and pointed at Hammett and exclaimed "I want your bunk!" Hammett replied "Fine, take my bunk, I'll sleep up front, it's probably better up there anyway". Burton was sleeping shortly before 7 am on September 27 when, according to the driver, the bus skidded off the road (the E4, 12 miles north of Ljungby), and flipped onto the grass in Ljungby Municipality, near Dörarp in rural southern Sweden. Burton was thrown through the window of the bus, which fell on top of him. They tried to save him and managed to lift the bus up a little using a crane. But, before they could retrieve him, the weight of the bus became too much and the bus slipped off the crane and landed on the ground again.
