The entire point of this one was that it could be a way to officially reissue some original mono mixes for collectors. It would be, indeed, a collectors' release then - after all many of us have been asking for these mono versions in the past.
Somehow it even looks deliberate. You know... "Hey, here's a release that contained mono mixes which you've been asking for - but surprise! they are gone. Here, have the same stereo versions that you already have and pay us £20 for a collectors' edition of what is no more a collectors' release. Thank you!"
Some of you may remember that I was one of the first to defend this release. It could be understandable... But now? No point.

Bollocks. That's a smokescreen for:
The stereo mixes are already mastered so its quick, easy, and cheaper to just sequence them up. If we elected to use the original mono masters we would have had to pay to create digital transfers, and for them to be mastered. Your £20 note is worth much more to us when we don't have to do that!
