DOTEOT - My Collection

Japan

CBS/Sony 25AP 1000
All Japanese releases came in the regular colored sleeve, however each pressing came with its unique OBI.

The 'Darkness on the Edge of Town' LP has been issued 4 times in Japan. In Europe later reissues received a new cataloge number. Each Japanese release however came with the same catalogue number.

All releases came with a bilingual lyric/info insert as well as the regular English lyric sheet.
The promo release included a special 20-page essay/photo booklet and two extra inserts, although it is now very hard to find such fully intact copies (the booklet being particularly rare even as a standalone item).
The following pressings from Japan are known to exist;

* CBS/Sony 25AP 1000 1st pressing PROMO
* CBS/Sony 25AP 1000 1st pressing STOCK
* CBS/Sony 25AP 1000 2nd pressing STOCK
* CBS/Sony 25AP 1000 3rd pressing STOCK
* CBS/Sony 25AP 1000 4th pressing STOCK


The promo release came on CBS/Sony white/black labels.
Underneath the CBS/Sony logo it shows three Japanese signs, which indicate it's a promo release.

All stock pressings came on CBS/Sony white/orange labels. The same label can be found on the 1st pressing from Hong Kong.
