The greatest hits picture disc has a picture of the band from when they played the montreux pop festival in '84, so why is the picture disc saisd to be from '81 when the picture hadnt been taken for 3 years to come?

Good question.

Yes, the Bulgarian.

I guess it's simple. It has been RE-ISSUED in like 1984... or a bit later. It's simply not an original ISSUE of the album from 1981. Don't have thos one, so I can't check what's written exactly on the cover (not to mention that I don't speak Bulgarian- well, a bit, things like Nodnol... ;) )

No this is the original with the 5 Marshall words on the amps inlcuding the one behind John. Even 'if it was from '81 it couldnt be from '81 because the picture wasnt taken until '84. Ive always wondered why they always say its from '81.

It's a 1984 edition of a 1981 album.

Like the 1977 edition of Queen II (Fame reissue), the 1995 issue of Queen I (Green vinyl), etc etc.
