Does anyone know if outside of the UK mixes in both Mono and Stereo and the American mixes in both Mono and Stereo, other countries did there own mixes. I know that in Germany there is the High Hat intro to 'All My Loving ' and the extra bar at the end of 'And I Love Her '
I was curious if other countries like Japan, Australia, Canada, France and so on did there own mixes. It seems to me the only country that tampered with the mixes was the US with Dave Dexter Jr.

Looking at the Discography tab up top, the section on the US says that there are alternative American mixes. Japan had special labels – I'll let you read the rest.
It doesn't say which were altered. (Or does it, and I'm not seeing it?) I would assume the earlier releases. I'm pretty sure The Beatles weren't impressed.
Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

I’m Only Sleeping would have to qualify for having the most all different in a very recognizable way. There are at least three I know of: all with the backwards-masked guitar faded in and out at noticeably different times.
I will play the game Existence to the End ;)

There was a supposed unique French mix of ‘IOS’ but was shown to be identical to a US mix. A few others were believed to be as well but they were just tampered with to mess about with the balances so nothing of any note. Canada rings a bell with one of their early ’64 albums (‘Long Tall Sally ‘ maybe) and a few of the tracks (‘You Can’t Do That ‘?). I’d need to look it up but regardless, they’re not genuinely different like the US when compared to the UK.
Generally, other countries were given the UK or US mixes and any differences were fabricated from there so not of much interest. There are supposed mono mixes of the 1969/70 stereo only singles and albums (eg Brazil) but they are fold downs (stereo collapsed to mono).
