Pitch of d1t01 was approx. 40 cents sharp. The rest were approx. 58 cents sharp.
There is a persistant hum throughout, accompanied at times by poor radio reception and distortion.
Despite its flaws, this is a powerful performance and a valuable historical document.
Many thanks to Jack for his source.
