The newest UK edition has original mono audio; what we got in the states is a fold-down of the 5.1 remix. If you’d like I can rip that track for ya if you’d like that instead.
No thanks. The original pioneer DVD has the REAL original mono mix. The 40th Anniversary and UK bluray were ripped from the 35mm version which had edits to the audio as mentioned in the first post.
That’s the first I’ve heard mention of this anywhere. Details? I’m not sure you’re following what I’m trying to explain: the U.S. Bluray from Dark Sky has a newly mixed 7.1 audio mix with messed-up sound effects, and the mono audio on said disc has the same problem because it’s simply a downmix from the 7.1. Second Sight’s UK release’s mono track does not have any soundtrack problems because it’s the actual mono track and not a downmix from an altered source. They’ve been compared and discussed online. If there are truly two different mono tracks out there that’s a first for me. lol
