The concensus on the forum here suggests that is BS and it's a 21st century fold-down.
Did Alfredo or anyone else ever get a definitive answer of it's true provenance?
You're right to raise that, it's an interesting point. I've been one of the most critical of the Mono mix because I thought it was a new(ish) fold-down as you say, but you're right in saying the box set credits it as released in March 1969 as MGM E4617 (as does the Sundazed box set). MGM did release promo mono versions of a number of their albums as E-XXXX around that time - maybe this was actually a genuine release? Has anyone ever seen a copy?!
