Does anybody know why 'Nothin' But Blue' was re-named into 'Somewhere In Time' for Cozy's album?

I can understand when same was done with 'Ressurection' and 'Ride To Win', because there's no 'guitar version' of 'Ressurection', but since Brian released instrumental version of 'NBB' on B-side of 'Back To The Light' single and it's similar to 'Somewhere In Time' - why did they had to use another one title for Cozy's album?

Bootlegers were happy about this I guess - one track with two official titles!

(Little FAQ for newbies who wants to know more than just age of Roger: 'Somewhere In Time' and 'Ride To Win' are instrumental versions of 'Nothing But Blue' and 'Ressurection' released on Cozy Powell's album "The Drums Are Back". The instrumental version of 'Nothing But Blue' (so-called guitar version) was also released as B-side on some Brian's singles. So if you'd wonder how did it happens that someone quite and retired called John Deacon played on Cozy Powell's solo album - you know the answer now)

John wasn't retired in 1989/1990/1991/1992 or whenever it was he recorded his bass parts. And he isn't only on Cozy's version. He also plays bass on the normal version of Nothin' but Blue

Oh really? Hmm... Actually it was what I wrote about - how did it happen that John's bass is on Cozy's album? Because he played on Brian's - and track is the same...

John wasn't retired, but newbies could wonder why John wasn't involved in any out-Queen projects since 1986 (he played on some tracks after 1986 - but it were Freddie's song, the Brian girlfriend's album, the charity single produced by Brian - so it's strange that he played after Freddie's death on the album of Cozy, isn't?)

You're not newbie, so I don't have to tell you things you already know!

Ride to Win and Somewhere In Time came first.
They became NBB and Resurrection after Brian had worked on them for Cozy's album and decided to write lyrics to them. Somewhere In Time was re-named for the BTTL-single in order to point out the fact that there's a song on BTTL called NBB which happens to correlate with this "guitar version". Apart from that there's no difference.
All quite banal really.

Oh, and - pedantic fekker that I am - there are John Deacon-involvements in outside-Queen projects after 1986:
- "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Bad News (1987)(okay, this one was produced by Bri)
- played at the Princes Trust chartiy gig in 1988 (Bri played as well)
- "Bushfire" by Steve Gregory (1994) (that's 100 % Queen free, if you leave out Steve's cameo on the AKOM album for a moment)
- "That's the way it got planned" from the first SAS band album (1997) (Rog played as well)


Thanks, Philipp.

Outside-Queen - I meant studio work, not live shows.
