Strange squeeking on recording could be a peddle or maybe a creaky piano stool, this feature can be heard on most tracks, its gets quite annoying in the end..
Generally this recording is unusual, in that there appears to be little or no limiting used, the LP has been mastered at lower level than normal to cope with the peaks, this gives the production a very explosive sound and shows up the surface noise and rumble on the disc.
However, all the faults aside, this is how a good piano recording SHOULD sound, not like some available, where the instrument sounds like someone draped a heavy carpet over the top, this a bright, forceful and incredibly alive recording.
Play it L O U D but watch the wine glasses.
