That's the origins of my avatar picture. I had my wife go out and buy a box of Crunch Berries so I could cut out the logo. Cheesey? Yes, but an homage nonetheless...

Flemming Rasmussen most likely has a bunch of private shots. He has uploaded 2 from Justice sessions which showed the drumkit and some guitaramps.

Ross Halfin did some during the Puppets sessions and might be the one behind the 2 allready published here. I know of 1 Ross picture with Cliff Burton behind a black piano wearing shades which is also Puppets sessions late 1985 area and in the Danish biography done on Lars Ulrich there is a upclose picture of Lars behind the drumkit used during Puppets.

Then there is some pictures of the Puppets lineup taken night time with snow on the ground in front of the headlights from the car they were driven. That is also Denmark late 1985.

The only thing I've seen of the Lightning sessions is the 1-2 minutes of film from a Danish program interviewing Lars from the time of Sgt Anger release.

I got that on VHS. No can't upload it but I have seen it on youtube somewhere.

Do you have a link to this youtube video? I cannot seem to find it! I would love to see some RTL footage.

Maybe he's muting the high strings to reduce noise in the recording?

You're likely right. It looks like electric tape...

Good point - good eye.

Proves that the V was used in the studio - not sure if that was ever discussed.

But also goes to show to what lengths James will go to make things sound perfect.
