This copy also has the LABEL and COVER ERRORS (later corrected on the label, but not the cover). This includes: A2 reads "A Little Help From My Friends" on the back cover and label instead of "With A Little Help From My Friends". A7 "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite!" has no exclamation point on the label. B4 "Good Morning, Good Morning" is missing the comma on the label. B5 reads "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - Reprise" on the label instead of "(Reprise)" in parenthesis.

Additionally, the MONO mix includes numerous differences, about one dozen, from the stereo issue that make this music truly pop and take on new meaning.
Here, The sonic differences:
The funky backwards guitar part at the end of the opening song just before "Billy Shears."
The flangey/ADT effect on Ringo's voice during some chorus of "With A Little Help From My Friends."
The tripped out flangey vocals from the second verse out on "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds."
The slightly longer end of "Fixing A Hole" where McCartney is wailing up high.
The change in tone in "She's leaving home" in the mono version - due to being sped up, not so dreary and long as in the stereo version.
The timing on the effects of "Mr. Kite."
The extended louder laughter on "Within You Without You."
The louder backing "oo-oo's" on "When I'm 64".
The "bleed edit" found at the beginning of the "Sgt. Pepper Reprise"; you can hear the machine flutter as it comes out of pause.
The low volume mumbo jumbo during the extended bass drum raps at the beginning of the "Sgt. Pepper Reprise".
The timing of the audiences are different on the "Reprise" section.
Paul McCartney ad libbing at the end. Paul sound like he is saying "Thank you very much good night now..." or "bye bye now".
Vinyl has a few light surface sleeve scuffs/sleeve hazing just holding grade back, nothing I can feel. There are a couple more scuffs on Side 2 than Side 1.
Rainbow band labels are excellent.

Original psychedelic inner sleeve has a touch of cornerwear, light edgewear top right edge, a 2-inch split upper left edge, and a drill hole upper right corner.
Original cutout insert is excellent with a touch of cornerwear and 7 small pin-holes lower left corner.
Gatefold cover has heavy cornerwear, edgewear, ringwear, hazing, and a drill hole upper right corner.
