So Somewhere In Time is my favorite 80's Maiden album (favorite 80's album in general). And I'm looking to get me a copy on vinyl, but the artwork is very important to me on this album afterall it is my favorite artwork along with Powerslave. I've been seeing 2 different covers for this album that are nearly identical, but one has 'Iron Maiden' 'Somewhere In Time' in big letters across the top and one has the same title in smaller letters on the top. The one with smaller letters is the copy that I want to get myself. The color also looks slightly different on Eddie. I know that some 80's cover art was slightly altered during the 1998 remasters, but did this effect their vinyl cover art as well? Or does SIT have the same cover that it had back in 1986? I've tried searching this topic, but can't find a single thing about it so that's why I am making this thread. I think it is extremely stupid that Maiden altered some of their original artwork during the '98 remasters. They might as well have changed the lyrics of Hallowed Be Thy Name while they were at it! I can very well understand why they alerted the No Prayer For The Dying artwork as it was very ugly, but The Number Of The Beast looked much better with the blue background IMHO. If anyone can shed some light on this topic would be very appreciated or if there is a thread discussing this detail already, then please send a link. Thank you! Also feel free to share your thoughts on the music itself on Somewhere In Time, sound quality ONLY. We already have threads to discuss what we all think of each song, but I've seen people claim that the original master is much better than the 1998 remastered Somewhere In Time so please share which you prefer and why. Again, thank you in advanced!
