I have read that the CD releases in 2004 cut out some of the more 'disagreeable' lyrics.
Is there a CD version with the original material completely intact, and also containing the bonus tracks, or is it only possible to get one or the other?
Or, is it only unedited on original vinyl pressings?
Any info will be appreciated. Thanks

Its an amazing circumstance that I managed to find a pressing such as this, with 2 different mastering choices for each side, ready for me to compare with my other Kevin Gray cut.
At first we have Gardlands cut which is a mostly thin but balanced performer. It doesnt have much bass or treble but there is still detail in the reverb and the soundstage is made deep. Still it lacks a presence which Im used to and it feels sloppy in more places than effective ones.
The RobLoVerde cut is similar but a slight improvement I would say. It has more bass in places and seems to clutter less. But theres again a lack of presence and some tracks seem EQd completely wrong like Stranded in Time. The drums are just very muffled and disappointing.
In the end I much prefer Kevin Grays cut which really rocks the table with presence, amazing bass and realism at the slight sacrifice of some depth and adding a few harshly bright areas.
I might be a little biased, but what I want is for the cut to convey the emotion I initially felt with this album, and KG's clearly has me more emotionally in tune with the musics message.
On a good note I can say that this other mix cut copy is very quiet too even though it has United stamps in the runout. Dead silent with just a few ticks and pops which is really good for them. Its good enough to be happy with and has some aspects some might prefer in their music but in the most objective sense does not perform as well.

Where does the title "The Columbia Recordings" come from, and how is this in any way different from the other 2014 release on Esoteric?

Listened to this record on inferior equipment but I can say that it sounds about as good as my Kevin Grey Sundazed cut. Maybe a little less bass and general harmonic detail but still very close, just a slightly different take on the music. I recommend both.

Update:
After trying a copy with both RobLoVerdes and Garlands own cuts of this album I can honestly say that Kevin Gray outdo them both with ease. This ( https://www.discogs.com/The-United-States-Of-America-The-United-States-Of-America/release/11679788 ) is the Stereo press to own besides and original which Im hoping to also compare someday.

Why is the term "unofficial" used, when the term "counterfeit" is more accurate for this purpose?

This record sounds fantastic in stereo with an extremely well done mastering and cutting job. Sundazed must really have sourced this from the original tapes. Their earlier release cut by Rob LoVerde is probably also good, but I can only speak for Kevin Grays work here which is dynamic with both a massive bass and air cutting treble in a nice atmospheric soundstage. Curiously the record came in a QRP inner sleeve which makes me wonder if its then pressed by them a.k.a Analog Productions. It wouldnt really surprise me as the vinyl is quiet, much more so than the recording hiss/static anyway.
If you are looking for a well made Stereo reissue these by Sundazed are surely your best option.

The question is if this Kevin Gray cut is superior to the sound of Sundazeds 2008 issue cut by Rob LoVerde. Anyone with both should make a comparison.

This pressing is sourced from the original masters, as Sundazed claims. Mine didn't come in a manila envelope. Sounds great!

Amazing and iconic 60's psychedelica. It succinctly captures the true essence of psych music. It sounds as relevant today as it did when it was released. The album has stellar production values. Every listen makes my ears horny. Essential!
