SMALL FACES/OGDENS' NUT GONE FLAKE IMSP 012 UK STEREO (1st matrix) VS. IMLP 012 MONO

Posted the mono here over a year ago and then pretty convinced that was a fold, but after finding a first press stereo and thus able to make a throrough comparison it appears I was wrong. Initial impression remains they sound rather similar, but mimicking a fold by pushing the mono button on the stereo shows on deviations. Balance differs at a few places in a way that could only be the result of separate mixes. Thanks to a post by "Tristero" on Steve Hoffman's I was also made aware the track "Rene" has diverging drum parts - a fact that confirms it once and for all. Another interesting thing with this is the matrix swap. Very first issue has "IMSP 012 1Y/IMSP 012 2Y", but those were withdrawn rather quickly and replaced by ones ending with "1Y-2/2Y-2", which became the standard version. I've seen claims on the net the two differ in audio as well as some of the edits. Unfortunately I lack means to dig deeper into that for now so I'll save it for a future post...
