Vertical Man inlay and CD case - query (and thoughts about the songs)

I received my copy of Vertical Man in the mail yesterday and it had one of those dark gray CD trays that usually comes with a CD where the reverse of the inlay is blank white.  I happened to notice a spot of colour through the hole where the CD sits and removed the tray; lo and behold the reverse of the paper inlay has lots of cool little pictures.

So, I replaced the gray plastic tray with a clear one and the CD looks much better.

Does anyone else have this CD? – If so I'm curious as to whether your CD tray is one of the opaque ones or is transparent.

I hope this is a little clearer than mud and that I have got the terms (such as inlay etc.) correct.

Don't own it, but here's a picture that seems to agree with most…

^ Ah, thanks, yes – that answers the question – it has a transparent case so you can see the pictures.  My copy of the CD was from ebay so the original owner must have used the transparent case for another CD, or replaced a damaged one with the only one they had at hand.  The pictures carry on right across the inlay.

I wonder if Ringo and his co-authors of "Minefield" from the Vertical Man album (1998) were influenced by Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire" from 1989?


Can buy Joe love! Here's the link that explains how.

Just a little.
