Looks like Ben LIEBRAND himself had found out about the problem for track "Dayton - The Sound Of Music " before. It says it all here : http://www.liebrand.nl/grand12/8.html

"Corrected to be Master Quality again

All other versions out there suffer from an error in tape transfer. During this transfer to digital, the recorder failed to maintain the correct speed resulting the tape playing slower and slower as the song progresses.
Go ahead and check your version! play the end bit and skip back to the beginning and hear how the end is indeed much lower and slower than the beginning.
I've spent half a day correcting the whole track compared to a reference tempo and key to repitch the whole song back to it's intended tempo and key."

Good point !

A comparison to the original 12" vinyl shows that CD version is indeed slower and starts around - 0,5 % to finish around - 2 % !! The biggest variations of speed appear and can be heard 2 minutes towards the end of the track.

Also, the very beginning of "Meli'sa Morgan - Fools Paradise " is missing ( Wrong cue ).

Name of the guy respnsible for mastering : Terry BURCH at ... Abbey Road Studios ! Damn !

Timing for "Dayton - The Sound Of Music " isn't 8:11 as mentioned on the booklet but 8:36. The master tape used for this track wasn't obviously in good condition, which actually can be heard while playing the track ( Speed variations around 7:30 ) .
