I'm sorry, I meant part VI not part IV.  The title is "Triumphal March of 
the Devil."
The Stanford Archive has both takes: WLX-16080-2 and WAX-1608-1-A-F-1.
Yes, it's the same music according to the label.  Maybe I should listen to 
it to be sure.
I don't have access to the equipment right now. I'll check later.

The matrix numbers for the complete set of recordings of the Soldier's Tale 
are WLX-1599 through 1602 and WLX-1607/ WLX-1608.

What Stanford has:
The records in Columbia album set M-184 include:
68123-D (WLX-1599-1/WLX-1600-1)
68124-D (WLX-1601-1/WLX-1602-2)
68125-D (WLX-1607-1/WLX-1608-2)
The individual records are:
LX-199 (WLX-1607-1/WLX-1608-2
LFX-263 (WLX-1599-1/WLX-1600-1)
LFX-264 (WLX-1601-1/WLX-1602-2)
LFX-265 (WLX-1607-1/WLX-1608-2)

and the variant take from album set MM-184 (record number 72291-D, sides 
1/6; (WLX-1599-1/WAX-1608-1-A-F-1)

The researcher says, "According to the Stuart discography, the released 
takes for both WLX1602 and WLX1608 were second takes.  Do you have an 
alternate take for side 4 (WLX1602-2)?"

We do not have the alternate take for WLX-1602-2.
