Bruce Springsteen – I’m On Fire 7″ (U.S. Pressing)

Posted: July 13, 2015 in Vinyl

The single for Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire” does not have too many variances like some of his other singles. It’s mainly a difference of being a 7″ or 12″. There are only four different covers, with only one of them being drastically different. What you see pictured below is the regular U.S. 7″ pressings..

All pressings have the same basic cover art, which is Springsteen standing in front of flames with his guitar across his waist. There is a promo U.S. 12″ that has the same cover art, only it’s black and white instead of color. There is also a German, Dutch and Euro 7″ pressing that has the full color cover art but has a yellow text box in the top right corner that hypes up the b-side track. Lastly, there is a Spanish single sided 7″ that has a headshot of Springsteen performing live, signing into a microphone as the cover art. Those three different covers are the only cover variants for this single, the rest of the pressings have the cover art pictured below for the 7″.

On top of the aforementioned 7″ pressings, there is also an Italian, Japanese, Australian, New Zealand, Canadian and two other U.S. pressings. The other U.S. pressings come in stock Columbia Records paper sleeves, with one being part of the Hall Of Fame series so it comes in the typical gray HOF paper sleeve. All the 7″ pressings has “Johnny Bye Bye” on the b-side. Along with the U.S. promo 12″ with the black and white cover, there are only two other 12″ pressings, both of which are from Europe. The track list for the Euro pressings is the same; A2 is “Johnny Bye Bye,” B1 is Shut Out The Light” and B2 is “Jersey Girl (live.) The Euro pressings have separate yellow text boxes for every track on the single along with a mention along the top right corner that they’re maxi singles that play at 45 rpm.
