Apart from the Capitol USA & Canada only Help! soundtrack album,
This first edition USA Capitol/Apple 1962-1966 (Red album) compiled by Alan Klein is the only other global pressing to have the James Bond Themed Indian/Sitar instrumental added to and proceeding C1 Help! vocal mix. Later re-presses, Tape 8 Track and Cassette and much later CD editions just have Help! vocal mix.
