I compared it to my West German pressing, and sure enough, it WAS different.... I searched the SH forums - nothing. But I did find a link to this very useful site:
Based on the above site, I can confirm that my friend's CD contains the original 1965 UK mixes. Every single variation listed is on this pressing.
My first thought was that this must be a bootleg, however, this disc was bought in a legitimate music store (in Vancouver, Canada, in 1992 whilst my friend was on vacation).
Anyway the details are:
Catalog #: C2 46440
Matrix Code: made by / fabrique par DISQUE AMERIC CANADA EA41 <011> C246440

On the inner ring, it shows up as manufactured by Disque Americ, and the code EA31<011>C246439 appears. Same Parlophone logo to the left, with the Capitol trademark disclaimer on the right.
Thomoz, what should I be listening for on "Dizzy Miss Lizzie"? John's vocal sounds clean, but I don't have anything to compare it to.
Sure enough, the clips don't lie:

As I've mentioned to David and Phil, I'm in utter amazement that these have remained apparently unknown for the last 15 years (or more). It begs the question - what else is out there we don't know about?
I haven't done any type of A/B yet, but the clips sure sound good.
