KPM Music Recorded Library (KPM "1000" Series)

Legendary UK label under KPM Music Ltd. Starting as a continuation of KPM's 78 library, the "1000" Series was established c. late 1965, and is the longest-running and best known series of releases by KPM. Though not initially housed in them, the series is also informally known as the "greensleeves", after the generic (though distinctive!) glossy green sleeves that were used for a majority of the releases, and re-releases of older material. After KPM 1259, cover art is employed.
In the words of the releases themselves:
Quote
The KPM "1000" Series
This series of 12", 33⅓ rpm long playing records is additional to our regular library of 10", 78 rpm records. LP recordings are issued in this series in cases when due to the special interest of the music or to the generic similarities of the material recorded, it is preferable to group all the items on one record rather than to disperse them over a number of 78 rpm discs.

There are actually several prints of the "1000" Series, and one can find different editions of the various LPs.
I'm unsure about dates, but the different prints include (approximately chronological):

Red/yellow front sleeve design with "KPM Music" logo, and "Music Specially Recorded for Film, Radio and Television".
Rear sleeve with tracklist and 'The KPM "1000" Series' info in two separate squares.
60's style label la the 78s.
Appears from KPM 1001 until approximately KPM 1031.


Generic green front sleeve with white edges. "KPM Music Recorded Library" in top right corner, address in bottom right.
Rear sleeve with tracklist under typographed title header and record description. "KPM Music Recorded Library" in top left corner.
Green and white labels.
Appears from approximately 1032 onwards (and for re-releases of earlier records back to KPM 1001) until KPM 1259.


For re-releases of older material; green front sleeve with "KPM Music" logo 'wallpaper', record title in white square in sleeve center. 80's style "KPM Music" logo in bottom left corner. Otherwise specific front sleeve design featuring title in top center, "KPM Music" logo in bottom left.
Rear sleeve with "KPM Music" logo in top left corner. Copyright information on bottom, under a black line.
Labels with light brown/beige grid background. "KPM Music Library" in top center, red square "KPM" logo.
Appears from 1260 onwards, some re-releases of older material.

Hi everyone,
maybe one of you can help me about that :
I recently bought this LP https://www.discogs.com/Various-Bass-Guitar-And-Percussion-Volume-3/release/13658754 and it is a mono version of the record. The former version registered on discog says 'stereo playable mono'.
Is there two versions of each release ?

Mr

I'm not sure if all of them have separate mono and stereo issues, but some seemingly do.
