Yes, at the beginning they didn't make any way to tell which was stereo and
which was the older issue. It was a crap shoot at which one you would get as
the packaging and catalog numbers were identical. Then they added this
sticker correctly thinking it would lead to more sales:
Note: the catalog number is MCA, the band's US label.
I bought this CD a local store for $9.99 with the sticker. As an added
bonus, Run Run Run is 10 seconds longer than on the previous CD.
If you want A Quick One in mono the original 1995 version is not what you
want. It is a combo of mono, stereo and fake stereo tracks. There are
European/Japanese pressings that cames out in the 80s that are completely
mono. Good luck in tracking those down.
