Does the mono version of BOTB have any different mixes?

Also, is the UK mono version the same as the US? I’m seeing a lot of UK mono albums for sale, but hardly any US pressings. Thanks

A couple of the songs are a few seconds longer too -- mainly, the fadeouts are slightly extended. It does have a markedly different sound overall, too.

Thanks. I actually found a cheap mono US version on EBay that wasn’t listed as mono. I just happened to see it didn’t have STEREO listed in the top left corner.

Same thing happened here!

I was digging through EBay about a year ago and saw what appeared to be 'The Beat Of The Brass' LP without the stereo imprint at the top left of the jacket. The photo of the label itself was pretty blurry, but it looked like it said, "Mono". So, I spent $20 and, lo and behold, it arrived and it was indeed the Mono version! Not only that, but the record itself was still SEALED in the vac-packed clear plastic inner sleeve. Pure mint.
