I don't think he had any time for remastering...he was much too busy kissing John Kerry's arse :-)

I don't have an answer, but sometimes amazon can give you a clue. The '75 album is noted as a '90 issued CD there.
Besides, mass market re-mastering is hardly necessarily a good sign. Whatever the vintage, Springsteens albums have among the most compressed dynamic range I can think of, especially "The River" on the original vinyl. What a waste (not with respect to that album in particular.)
Anyway, wouldn't you rather go to fatparrot's for pork rinds and his 'ol Anita Bryant 8 tracks. Soooeee! (Spelling? I'm from a blue city, if not state.)
Springsteen's material hasn't been remastered in terms of actual albums-the GH's comp. from a few years back might have had individual tracks done-and Tracks the box set of outtakes was mastered using the latest technology and was also HDCD.
The albums are pretty flat on CD.
Packaging can always be different from different countries or indeed different issues but The Boss requires to be given the Remaster treatment!
