The 2015 remastered issues of Bruce Springsteen's first seven album were pressed on vinyl at MPO in France. Some were sold in Europe and some were exported to the US. Not all of the seven albums have differences in the artwork between the EU issue and the US issue. All seven US releases and four of the EU releases feature US copyright text at the bottom of the rear sleeve (550 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10022-3211 / "Columbia" and Reg. U.S. Pat. & Tim. Off. Marca Registrada...) Three of the EU releases feature EU copyright text at the bottom of the rear sleeve (Sony Music Entertainment International Services GmbH, PO Box 510, 33311 G├╝tersloh, Germany... Made In The EU...) These are "Born To Run", "The River", and "Born In The U.S.A."

The sleeves for the EU issue and the US issue are identical for four of the albums: "Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.", "The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle", "Darkness On The Edge Of Town", and "Nebraska". So it's the hype sticker on the shrink wrap that decides if a copy in hand is an EU issue or a US issue. The EU issues have rectangular (90x70mm or 90x75mm) stickers and the 2015 US issues have square (90x90mm) stickers.
