Metallica - Live Shit: Binge & Purge: Wikipedia Album Entry

Live Shit: Binge & Purge is a box set and also Metallica's first live album, released in 1993. It contains three CDs and three VHS tapes, while a newer version contains two DVDs from concerts in San Diego (on the Wherever We May Roam Tour) and Seattle (on the Damaged Justice Tour) and also includes three CDs with songs from a concert in Mexico City on the Nowhere Else To Roam tour. It was originally released as a cardboard box depicting the style of a typical tour equipment transport box. Besides the audio and video media, the box featured additional bonus material (booklet showing a multitude of photos, typical tour correspondence as sent and received by the band and their management, and internal documents and handwritten notes; a recreated copy of an access pass to the "Snakepit" part of the tour stage; a cardboard drawing/airbrush stencil for the "Scary Guy" logo).

It's been certified 15x Platinum by the RIAA as a long-form video format.
