''Somewhere Back in Time - The Best of: 1980 - 1989'' is a best of album by the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, containing a selection of songs from the originally recorded for the first seven Iron Maiden albums.

The album was released in conjunction with the band's Somewhere Back In Time World Tour to allow new fans to listen to a selection of the band's material that was played on the tour. The album cover features the Pharaoh Eddie monument from ''Powerslave'' and Cyborg Eddie from ''Somewhere in Time''. In addition, the Iron Maiden logo is colored blue with a gold outline - the same colours used on the cover of ''Seventh Son of a Seventh Son''.

A number of tracks were taken from the band's 1985 live album, ''Live After Death'' because the band preferred to use recordings which featured current Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson rather than Paul Di'Anno who sang on the first two Iron Maiden albums. Furthermore, the latest songs on here come from Iron Maiden's 1988 album ''Seventh Son of a Seventh Son''. This means that despite the album's title, the songs were all recorded and released in the incarnations presented here between 1981 and 1988. - Wikipedia
