my copy has a small "6" on the back cover instead of a small "4", and 2C-2A matrix numbers.
can I consider it as a second Terre Haute pressing?

In 1968, The Byrds could be described as Sgt. Pepper’s-curious: a group yearning for experimentation but still in communication with their jangly roots. There are moments when they sound like a conservative dad’s weakest nightmare: aloof, stoned, and gently rebelling. “Things that seemed to be solid are not,” goes one trippy line from “Change Is Now,” and the tune’s guitar solo is the sound of thousands of high school longhairs being threatened with military service. However, for every early, intrepid use of a Moog synthesizer, there’s something like the gentle cover of Gerry Goffin and Carole King’s “Goin’ Back,” which came with its own confession: “A little bit of courage is all we lack.” The Notorious Byrd Brothers catches the band in a space between, it’s the sound of psychedelic pop’s sugars fermenting, but not yet turning into alcohol.

The rare press with both sides hand etched in the runout. This is super punchy and crystal clear or at least my copy is! Hot stamper baby.

Can anyone confirm if the UK is a dedicated mono mix or a fold down?

Its definitely a dedicated mono mix with differences in the mix and crossfades...

Both the album cover and the record labels state my copy was made in Holland (i.e. not 'Europe')

This is my favourite Byrds album. It’s crammed with wonderfully inventive songcraft that seems to work together as a complete whole. Even the two Goffin-King numbers work; ‘Goin Back’ has just the right amount of wistfulness and the gorgeous harmonies and slinky pedal steel are sweet icing on the cake. The jaunty ‘Wasn’t Born to Follow’ conjures up idyllic summer days riding your motorbike with your best mate and a bag full of natures finest; hey, didn’t someone make a movie about that?

McGuinn and Hillman are still in charge with the spacey, countrified psych of ‘Change is Now’ (love that bass) the funereal, future forecast of ‘Space Odyssey’ and dig those phased horns and guitars kicking in on opener ‘Artificial Energy’; so cool.

David Crosby wrote a couple of stunners before he was kicked out of the band and went sailing. ‘Draft Morning’ cruises in like candyfloss then turns into a nasty ‘Nam nightmare of fanfare trumpets, scrapping drum fills and machine gun fire. ‘Tribal Gathering’ sounds like it’s gonna be a dopey hippy love-in, but comes in like a chiming, harmony drenched fox-trot before knuckling down to the dirtiest groove out of which comes one hell of a scorching guitar break; nice, nice, nice!
