Megadeth’s “Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying” Re-mastered for 25th Anniversary Edition
Released in 1986, Megadeth’s second studio album, Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying? hit platinum status. For the first time since the original release, the album has been digitally remastered and repackaged in a 25th anniversary edition by Capitol/EMI. The landmark album features the bass work of Dave Ellefson.
The deluxe set comes in a lift-top box with 5 discs, 3 LPs, including a previously unreleased live recording from the band’s first world tour in 1987. Other previously unreleased material makes the set, with alternate song mixes from the album. Artwork includes 8×10 photos and reproductions of vintage Megadeth memorabilia, and the box cover features a 3D version of the original cover.
A 20 page book rounds out the set, with liner notes by Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine and Metallica’s Lars Ulrich.
A 2-disc set of the remastered release is also available.
Artisan News caught up with Ellefson, who shared his feelings on having Ulrich contribute to the liner notes:
