Sufjan Stevens ‎– Illinois. Label: Asthmatic Kitty Records ‎– AKR 014, Asthmatic Kitty Records ‎– AKR014CD. Format: CD, Album, Repress. Although the album title listed on the spine is "Illinois", the cover reads, "Sufjan Stevens invites you to: Come on feel the ILLINOISE". Since the time that Superman was removed from the cover art, two other covers exist. One adds balloons where Superman was, and one has only empty sky.

Illinois (or Sufjan Stevens Invites You To: Come On Feel The Illinoise) is the second album in the so-called 50 States Project, which later turned out to be a stunt. The album focuses on Illinois and includes some things from Sufjan’s past as well. The artwork for the album originally included Superman but was eventually replaced (or, on some albums, flat-out removed). Contrary to popular belief, this is not because DC Comics filed a cease and desist.

My Rough Trade press has a press review hype sticker over the area where the Superman should be so I presume he's under there. I purchased this record in first week of release. The picture here does not contain either so different pressing?
