The only other Mono Mix I know of is from the ITV broadcast back in the 80's and was used for the Molly Prototype Mono Pre-ANH "XP77:4EB" Edit

:: Source Details
Source is VHS; movie taped from a UK ITV broadcast approximately 20 years ago.
Audio is on the linear track - no hifi on VHS back then!
Source is PAL @ 25fps, so if you NTSC guys want to use this in your DVD projects
I guess you will need to slow down by ~4%.
Several seconds of audio are missing from both the beginning and the end, and there
are also occasional gaps; whoever recorded this paused the tape for the ad breaks but was sometimes a bit slow at
restarting the tape. The tape is very worn at the start and the audio drops out
and goes wobbly several times during the title music. It will take a lot of
perseverance to get this audio in sync with a good copy of the video.
For those who may be interested, the EditDroid ANH with Mono soundtrack has just been posted on a.b.sw
