Tom,
You might be interested to know that the Munch/Martinu Symphony No. 6, part of the 2nd and the complete 3rd Movement are different takes in the mono (LM-2083) and the various stereo versions.  Although the entire work was recorded in one session on April 23, 1956, the left channel failed (it was recorded on two-track, 15ips binaural tapes) midway through the session.  The mono master used a mix for the first movement and for the last 5:23 of the second movement.  The first 1:55 of the second movement, and the complete third movement used the right channel only for the mono LP master.  For all versions of the stereo issues, earlier in the day, previously not chosen takes were used so that the entire recording could be issued in stereo.

Those particular titles were issued in mono only when they were on Red Seal, although the stereo 
masters were issued later.
