Metallica recorded only two performances with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra which was primarily conducted by Michael Kamen.

James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich brought in two new songs for integration with Kamen's demonstrations.
These were "No Leaf Clover" and "-Human" which before the Live Concert had never been performed infront of an audience.
The compositions were released in late 1999 which contained both the audio and footage contained. This was legitimately name "S&M - Although an Acronym was named the "Official" Title of the Album.
