The Spanish releases came in a unique sleeve design with a different black-and-white rear sleeve (photo from standard inner bag) with Spanish title translations.

The 1st pressing came with catalogue number 86061 and was released in 1978. It came on sunburst labels (with boxed SGAE).
All 1st pressings were manufactured by 'Discos CBS in Madrid' with the following address ‘Avda. Generalisimo, 25 / Madrid – 16’.
Some copies came with a 2-page promotional DJ-booklet, which is very rare.
Another variant is the one coming with a promotional discography insert. This insert was inserted in all of Springsteen’s catalogue after the Barcelona concert in April 1981. That’s almost three years after the release of Darkness on the Edge of Town. Nowadays it’s very hard to believe, but Bruce’s records didn’t have huge sales in Spain until the release of BITUSA. Finding this insert in a first pressing release could very well mean that in April 1981 there were still copies unsold; maybe hundreds of them.
Then there's the label variant with the 1st pressing releases. It has a slight variation noticeable on Cara 2. On the lower part of the label they have listed the tracks. The difference can be found with the last song of the record; Darkness on the Edge of Town. The labels are displaying this song as follow;

1st variant:
· 1st line: BORDE DE LA CIUDAD -Darkness on the
· 2nd line: edge of town-, 4’28’’

2nd variant:
· 1st line: BORDE DE LA CIUDAD -Darkness on the edge
· 2nd line: of town-, 4’28’’

Also, below all listed tracks the 1st variant shows (B Springsteen) while the 2nd variant has it written with an extra dot (B. Springsteen).

The 2nd pressing came with the same 86061 catalogue number and was released in 1981 (year is printed on the lyric insert). It also came on CBS sunburst labels, however with unboxed SGAE.
These 2nd pressings were also manufactured by 'Discos CBS in Madrid'. However this release came with two different manufacturing addresses;

‘Avda. Generalisimo, 25 / Madrid – 16’ (same as 1st pressing) and
- ‘Paseo de la Castellana, 93 / 28046 – Madrid’.

The reissue releases received a different 32542 catalogue number compared to the first two pressings and came as regular or Nice Price (Precio Redondo) editions. First batch of reissues started around 1985. All reissues came on red label; either CBS or later CBS/Sony.

Manufacturing wise there are two variants possible; 'Discos CBS' or 'Tecnodisco'.
Although CBS was located at the same address in Madrid, sleeves of these reissues refer to the following two manufacturing addresses;

‘Paseo de la Castellana, 93 / 28046 – Madrid’.
- ‘Castellana, 93, 28046 – Madrid’.
The following pressings from Spain are known to exist;

* CBS S 86061 1st pressing STOCK*
* CBS S 86061 2nd pressing STOCK**
* CBS 32542 3rd pressing STOCK
* CBS 32542 4th pressing STOCK
* CBS/Sony 32542 5th pressing STOCK
* 4 variants
** 2 variants


Later releases came with a barcode on the back cover. All reissues were released without a lyric sheet.

First two pressings came on CBS sunburst labels. The 3rd and 4th pressing came on CBS red label and the 5th pressing was released on CBS/Sony red label.

It’s important to know the historical milestones for CBS records in Madrid – Spain;

1. In 1980 CBS moved from address ‘Avda. Generalisimo’ to ‘Paseo de la Castellana’ in Madrid.
2. CBS changed to red labels around 1985.
3. The manufacturing company Tecnodisco was founded in 1988.
4. CBS Spain became CBS/Sony in 1991.

I own a 2nd pressing with the following address ‘Paseo de la Castellana, 93 / 28046 – Madrid’. Although CBS already moved to this new address in 1980, it is a very real possibility that they took the remaining stock of unused sleeves with them from the previous location. That would be a logical explanation to find this 2nd pressing housed in two different sleeves (address wise).

Please note that I'm not sure whether multiple variants are possible, as I don't own multiple copies of the same pressing.
