[78-L] New Armstrong set - Jazz Times review

I don't have the Schaap release, not liking its shrill, bass-thin 
sound, but I had assumed Schaap at least got the pitch right.

If they used older off-pitch tapes, one wonders why nobody
bothered to raise the playback speed when playing those tapes,
to correct the pitch (or were they worried about playing back
a Dolby tape at a speed slightly different from the one at which 
it was encoded?).

I wonder if Michael Brooks knows the answer.
