The homevideo contains also a performance with former guitarist [[Dave Mustaine]] on March 19, 1983, shortly before his release for heavy drugs and alcohol abuse.
The video is a retrospective on the 3 and a half years that Cliff Burton was in Metallica, presented as a collection of bootleg footage shot by fans, some professional filming and TV shots that were never used and some of his best bass solos, personal photos and live concerts. Photos and narrations by the band ([[Lars Ulrich|Ulrich]], [[James Hetfield|Hetfield]] and [[Kirk Hammett|Hammett]] drinking beer) are placed between songs which focus on Burton before fading into a title card of a performance. The video ends with the melodic interlude of "Orion" as pictures of Burton are shown.
