If you have a Korg CA-30, just calibrate up to A = 452 Hz and you'll be in tune with the CD.
Yes, it does appear that the entire album is slightly sharped, but not all the way to F.
Noticed this a couple of years ago by holding up my Korg CA-30 to the stereo speakers and got the green light center a full 12 Hz higher. Once I tuned up to this all the cool leads finally started to sound right.
The only reason I can think of for this sharping was that they were on the road, maybe the piano was found to be sharped, and they decided to sharpen everything to the piano than retune it on the fly.
This sharpening has a LOT to do with why the entire album is so airy sounding.

Is it possible that power conditions at various shows that compiled E72 were different. Again, not based on anything I've read about. Europe "Voltage" is 220-240 VAC. I'm sure they some sort of converter to drop everything to 110-120 VAC. I don't know if the technology of the day would have been clean enough to supply a steady 115VAC (As an example).. so.... If tape machines (Of the day) were receiving 120VAC, would that "Speed" up the tape motors?
Albeit random.... Just a thought...
