The sticker on the sleeve says "1000 copies", the website of MusicOnVinyl says "750 copies".

Nice pressing: flat and well centered, a striking Prussian blue color to match the cover (my copy has some wisps of black in it). The correct album version of “Catch the Wind” is included. Licensed from BMG/Sanctuary, so I suspect that the 2002 master for the deluxe edition CD was used and thus should be considered mono (I've never heard the “Electronically Enhanced Stereo” version). MOV please reissue Fairytale next.

Ah, I see that now. So maybe it's the case that the recording was made in stereo but there is no noticeable channel separation to determine that absolutely? I did pull out my 2002 BMG/Sanctuary CD release, and lo and behold that isn't actually designated mono or stereo, despite what's said on Discogs. That could be why this reissue also doesn't specify one or the other.

I weighed in on whether it was mono or stereo based on my listening because neither is indicated on the cover or labels, which you can see in the images. I found it strange that it wouldn't be indicated, and I suppose then the majority of folks would consider it stereo by default. If you look through the list of all versions of this release, it was issued as “Electronically Enhanced Stereo” in the US along with mono pressings as well. I have a Hickory mono version and the BMG CD version from 2002, which according to the Discogs database is mono, and that likely provides the master for this version. I would have to dig out that CD to ensure that it is in fact *labeled* mono—maybe it's not. So I believe that I haven't heard a stereo version of What's Bin Did, and I'm not sure that it exists in true stereo. Fairytale may be different.

I was told by Juno that this was a stereo pressing ?? How do you know that the stereo issues are “Electronically Enhanced Stereo” ? I was under the impression that the original stereo releases of this album and Fairytale were true stereo.

this item has the pictures of the stereo release of PYE / Allied Record's NSPL 30060 --- but was listed with the mono catalog number NPL 30060 --- this should be corrected.

My copy of this version has the image of Donovan reversed. Is there any difference about this release other than that

I have a copy, too.
I've held onto this record for about 50 years.
