Because on a CD, the bass track is not separated from the rest, so you'd have to use some rather crappy methods like simply boosting lower frequencies in Audacity in order to bring out the bass*. While if you actually have Jason's separated bass track next to drums tracks, guitar tracks, etc., you can mix the track down again with Jason's bass higher in the mix. The latter approach sounds way better, but requires something more than just the CD.

But maybe those separated instrumental tracks are available now. I just know that, back when people started trying to remix the album, not all songs had those separated instrumental tracks available.

*which is even harder to do well on that album than on most other albums since Hetfield's guitar covers so much of the same frequency area. Making it hard to bring out the bass without affecting the guitars.
