The only "official version" is the 180g vinyl with the plain soiled cover.  It was issued at the same time as the CD and deluxe reissues last year. 

I have it, and the differences are mostly fairly subtle.  There's nothing that will blown your mind.  A few different fades, edits and vocal effects mostly.

E is for 'Ergent'.

I'm not sure if I'm right here, but wasn't there a mono Ram first time around? I know I had a mono Ram back in the '80s, bought in a secondhand record shop. And I recall when the Deluxe was released, one of the lines was that it was the first time on CD for the mono mix, not the first time the mono mix had been released.

Yes you're correct. The only mono release was originally in 1971 until the reissue.

Glad to hear that the vinyl I bought back in the 80s, and is still buried somewhere in my boxes of vinyl, wasn't a bootleg.

The mono version was a radio-only promo, so it's ridiculously rare if it's real.  Any commercial releases were only in stereo.  Many bootlegs do exist.

My copy is buried away in my boxes of vinyl, but I'm a bit OCD and have everything cataloged. It was bought in Beanos in Croydon (once the largest secondhand record store in Europe, now sadly gone) on 13 October 1987. It cost me £65 (which was a hell of a lot then!), and I have written in brackets after the price, promo. The catalogue number I have is Apple MAS-3375.
