Metallica - S&M (disc 1): Wikipedia Album Entry
S&M - an abreviation of 'Symphony and Metallica' as well as a play-on-words for sadomasochism - is a live album by Metallica, with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra conducted by the late Michael Kamen, recorded on the 21st to 22nd of April, 1999 at Berkeley Community Theatre.
The album is broken up into two discs. This is the final Metallica album to feature bassist Jason Newsted (though not his final performance or recording with the band).
S&M contains performances of Metallica songs with additional symphonic accompaniment. The idea to combine heavy metal with an epic classical approach, as James Hetfield has stated repeatedly, was an idea of Cliff Burton. Burton’s love of classical music, especially of Johann Sebastian Bach, can be traced back to many instrumental parts and melodic characteristics in Metallica’s songwriting including songs from "Ride The Lightning" and "Master of Puppets".
