Australia

CBS SPB 237136
The Australian release came in a common sleeve with the well known Stefanko pictures printed on both front and rear sleeve.

Rear sleeve has the small font for track listing.

Bottom right corner shows a CBS logo with '[STEREO] Can Also Be played On Mono Equipment'. Underneath the logo the following text is printed onto the sleeve; 'SBP 237136, Cassette PC 7136'.

Bottom left corner has the 'album credits' printed in white font.

The sleeve does not mention that the record has been produced in Australia!
Came with a regular pictured inner sleeve, which bears the catalogue number on the rear left bottom.

The Australian releases also came with a lyric sheet. The Australian rights of Springsteen's songs are administered by Jonathan Music (Aust.) Pty. Ltd.
The following pressings from Australia are known to exist;

- CBS SBP 237136 - 1st pressing PROMOTIONAL*
- CBS SBP 237136 - 1st pressing STOCK
- CBS SBP 237136 - 2nd pressing STOCK
* missing


The promotional release came with a promotional blue inkt stamp compared to the more common known golden stamps, which can be found on e.g. US pressings.

The difference between 1st and 2nd pressings can be found looking at the sleeve, labels, OIS as well as the inserted lyric sheet.
It is believed that the 1st pressing came with a pink lyric sheet as this one has thick paper quality compared to the 2nd pressing white lyric insert, which has been made of thinner paper quality.
The same quality aspect is noticeable looking at the OIS. First pressing OIS has much thicker cardboard quality compared to the second pressing. The sleeve of the 2nd pressing is smaller around the edges and spine.
Both pressings came on CBS sunburst labels with a slight textual difference.

The 1st pressing has the following text 'Made in Australia by a registered user of the trade Marks' written on the bottom.

The 2nd pressing has the following text 'Made in Australia by a registered user of the trade Marks. [CBS logo] and 'CBS' are trademarks of CBS Inc. U.S.A.' written on the bottom.

On both releases you can find the following information;
