Hi there, an interesting post indeed. The audio on the shows included in The Complete Works-set are all mono-mode.
The other CD's featuring shows from 1970 on your list are in stereo-mode.

Red Hot In Richmond is stereo-mode
A Greensboro Revolution is mono-mode

For the June 1977-material my opinion is as follows:

As I Leave You (mono, undoubtedly just a VHS-transfer)
Candid Elvis On Camera (same as above, even slightly inferior audio imho)
The CBS Concert Recordings - Omaha, June 19, 1977 ES
The CBS Concert Recordings - Rapid City, June 21, 1977 ES
For these last two I assume you mean the Gravel Road CD. They're in mono-mode and imho I'm convinced that the producers just used the audio from the DVD's in The Final Curtain-set by Boxcar.

At least one answer,,thank you... .but what is mono and stereo mode ..we need clear terms.
You mean a mono dub of a MT and a stereo one..? Or a mono SB and a fake stereo one..?

Maybe the producers could add some essential info, it's amazing how much material has leaked out.
