Question Simple Minds: Sparkle in the Rain 5.1 issues

Read online that the initial release of the 5.1 mixes of Sparkle in the Rain had some technical problems (including vocals being too low in the mix) that even the mixing engineer acknowledged. Wondering if they ever fixed the issue and offered replacements (like DSOTM Immersion blu-ray replacements) or fixed it in later pressings, or if nothing ever happened. Would like to know so I can decide if I should get a copy or not, thanks!

[Edit] Yet another time when Google answered my question, from Discog:

Repress of the faulty Pure Audio Blu-Ray of "Sparkle In The Rain".
Sent out by Universal Music upon request and delivered in a clear plastic sleeve.

Initial copies of this Blu-Ray had a mono mix instead of Steven Wilson's 2014 Stereo Mix. And problems with the 5.1 Mix had been acknowledged too.

Matrix numbers help distinguishing this Blu-Ray from the faulty one.
Anyone done this with the blu-ray?
