On Stage - UK Fourth Reissue 7" Single: The Single File Box Set Release
Since I'm hoping to completely redo my original post on The Single File box set very soon (perhaps even later on today), I thought it was time to post the version of On Stage that came with it, which I've never actually done before.
This one is interesting because On Stage was issued quite a few times in the UK. The one found in The Single File box set is a fourth reissue release. As far as I know, the box set is the only place where you'll find this particular reissue.
In this case, they simply copied a third issue sleeve. If you take a look at the full outer front of the entire sleeve (or even just the back portion) you will easily see the spine of the third issue sleeve showing.
The inside of the sleeve is pretty interesting too. As far as I can remember, this is the only issue to have flaps on the inside... and bad ones at that. Not only do they run directly through the acknowledgements, but none of the photos are lining up properly.
Also, if I remember correctly, this is the only UK reissue where the titles are all printed in capital lettering.
