Help: The Sting (1973) - original mono track preservation

The Sting was originally released with mono audio and that’s how it was retained up to the first DVD release. When the movie saw a widescreen DVD release in 2005 it got a remixed 5.1 track that changed a lot of sound effects, fortunately the original track was included as well. Unfortunately when the movie came to blu-ray the original track got excluded and we only got the remix in English. Then there came a 4K release with some hoping the original mono track would be restored but sadly once again has been excluded.

I decided to make this thread in an attempt to preserve the original mix. It would be preferable for there a rip exist of the very first (open-matte) DVD because it reportedly had a better audio mastering than the 2005 DVD, but even the 2005 DVD would be fine with me.

If anyone has anything please let me know.

I doubt they’re any better or worse than the first DVD considering it highly likely uses the same master
