[78-L] War of the Worlds on LP

It dawned on me tonight (as I await the airing of the new PBS doc on the
show) that I don't own a copy of the famous Evolution double-LP set of the
War of the Worlds. I checked eBay, and all copies of Evolution 4001 appear
to be *gasp* simulated stereo.
Did Evolution ever issue this version in mono? If not, are the CD copies in
circulation (Metacom, Radio Spirits) really sourced from this pseudo-stereo
record? Of the several CD restorations I've heard, the Metacom disc from
the mid-90s seems to be the least objectionable.
I've got the Audio Rarities release, which I believe is cut. Any other
notable versions worth owning on LP?
