Metallica's album Ride The Lightning has been described as "possibly the best metal album of all time" though granted, that is by the seller. To the seller's credit though, this is certainly one of the best versions I've seen of the album- signed by the entire band, not once but twice, but better still is the fact that James Hetfield has renamed the album "Ride The Vodka!!"

The seller on Etsy is asking $5,000 for the album which has a pretty faultless provenance, the seller got the autographs in person when he met the band at a store signing (I can't imagine Metallica at a store signing either, but that's showbiz, baby), spawing a friendship that apparently lasted with Kirk Hammett for many years.

Money from the sale will go towards funding the seller's Indie record label, IBC Shadows Music which is a pretty cool thing to do.
