More like Zimbabwe, I would assume. The same "generic" type of labels was used for a handful of Springsteen 7" and 12" singles distributed in Zimbabwe during the 1980s, although these are believed to actually be "recycled" leftover copies from South Africa. In any event, I've never seen a copy of the "Tunnel Of Love" LP in this particular form before.

The record is DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN

In any event, I've never seen a copy of the "Tunnel Of Love" LP in this particular form before.

I believe that it is a Zimbabwe pressing, in the right lower corner on the back it says 4A Belmont Printers. That I have seen on other Zimbabwe records not only Bruce. All Bruce records from Greetings to HT/LT, except Live box have been pressed at the plant in Harere.

I have the info from a record dealer in Harere, but he says that it is hard to find copies now.

But anyway a great find.

I checked another lp of me "Lucky town" that is from Zimbabwe for sure.

And indeed, it also has the "4A Belmont printers" print on the cover.

On the back (left lower corner) it it has also the following text "marketed and distributed by zimbabwe music corporation". That is not on the tunnel of love copy so that made me doubtfull about the country where it was released.
