On Stage - Spain 7" Single
Spanish release of On Stage comes in a single pocket sleeve made of thicker paper material. The cover art is the same as the UK release, but with the addition of Spanish text, a different catalogue number, etc. There's also one interesting alteration on the front cover with the "On Stage" lettering, which I don't think anyone has ever picked up on before. If you look at the letter O in "On" and the letters S and T in "Stage", you will see that very specific cuts and trims have been made to those letters in specific places. Some cuts look like slivers, and other cuts look like little gouges. It's easy enough to miss if you aren't paying close attention. I have absolutely no idea if this was a printing error or done on purpose, but every Spanish copy has this.
The back of the sleeve also uses the same artwork found on the UK release, but on this release it's been tinted with a reddish brown colour.
The record labels are similar to the UK ones at the time, except the EMI logo is considerably smaller. Song titles are printed in both English and Spanish, with the distribution information also in Spanish.
