This raised some debate on Yeeshkul, and the following was concluded: this is in fact a mono fold down of the 1974 Jenner stereo mix as presented on Dawn Of The Piper. And it sounds and looks like a victim of mp3 compression.
From the (original) info file:
Pink Floyd - 'Vegetable Man / Scream Thy Last Scream' from questioned acetate, 1967
'A while ago,
I met a guy name Saq who lives in Los Angeles who had a very nice record in his possession. Saq had, what I believe to be the only known Acetate copy of 'Vegetable Man' and 'Scream Thy Last Scream' from 1967. I tried desperately to obtain it from him but he informed me that he would only let it go for $10,000 US Dollars (CASH!!!)
I tried to stay in communications with him for more than a year and begged him to at least have the tracks recorded. He agreed to do me the favor, and sent the Acetate to a professional studio in San Francisco to have the tracks recorded properly.
After months of desperately waiting, he finally received his Acetate back along with the digital tracks. Thankfully, the same day he picked up his record was the same day he sent me the magical tracks.
After more than a year of waiting, I finally got the tracks and now want to share them with all of you. We are the real Syd Barrett crazies and we all deserve to listen to his art. There should be no discovery made that ends up back in the vaults.
So here it is, back from the grave, Vegetable Man and Scream Thy Last Scream (The Acetate).
'Guitar Can be heard a little better'
'More Echo on Vocals towards the ending of the song'
Scream Thy Last Scream:
'Nick Mason or Syd Barrett could be heard coughing at 1:29 into the track'
'There is an extremely disturbing low-toned cry/moan at 4:13 in the track'
Please let me know if you guys hear any other differences in these recordings. Enjoy!

There a notes from my friend and collector, Giuliano Navarro.
So, this is absolute unheard new mix of 'Scream'.
Thank you very much for sharing this with all fans, Giuliano!
