DOTEOT - My Collection

India

CBS 10195
The Indian release came in the well known colored sleeve with very minor differences compared to other releases.

Rear sleeve uses the small font for track listing.
The bottom left corner of the rear sleeve has a white printed text indent with the 'album credits'.
The top right corner of the rear sleeve has the catalogue number 'CBS 10195' printed onto the sleeve.

It came without an OIS and without a lyric insert.

Indian pressed records are in general very hard to find as they were produced in very limited quantities due to low demand. Also it is a known fact that most have been destroyed as they were never preserved or collected, hence such Indian pressings are scarce and very difficult to locate.
The very first Indian pressing of a Bruce Springsteen record was Nebraska, which was pressed in 1983 (a little bit later than the original release date of September 1982).
The second Indian release was BITUSA, which was pressed in 1984. Due to the global hype (Bruce was becoming a well-known global rock star), the Indian market decided to release two key albums in 1985; BTR and DOTEOT.
Looking at the catalogue numbers for these releases, you can easily confirm the chronological release track;

• CBS 10059 – Nebraska 1983
• CBS 10109 – BITUSA 1984
• CBS 10159 – BTR 1985
• CBS 10195 – DOTEOT 1985
The following pressing from India is known to exist;
