Dates are 'Recording first published' so I don't know if that date refers to the Sylvester Music pressing or the Musique Pour L'Image pressing

Awesome, thanks!

I suspect it refers to the original copyright dates - but it's what the release says, regardless. I'll take a look.

edit: Yup, seems like it - though the non-reissued releases often bear the same dates, so these were possibly released both in France and the UK at approximately the same time, c. 1967-1971. Stuff like SMC/LP 523 being dated at 1967 seems "wrong", but you can see a clear tendency in the release dates surrounding it, suggesting it was probably issued c. 1969.
