This transfer can be compared to Mr Pristine's.. mp3 sample   which, due to a considerable difference in waveform/sound/treble extension, might well derive from a (copyright) commercial CD.  (See the waveform trace, below, comparing the 2 files @ the same point; illustrating that the LP's treble extends far beyond his transfer.  He notes that his, undisclosed, source is limited to just above 10kHz). 
Of course, his receives (12 Sept 2012) a  MusicWeb  seal of approval..sort of 'Pirate, First Class'.  NB: the LP's are mastered with a wide dynamic-range: the ending is @ 0dB - thus much of the preceding is @ a far lower than average level.  The files have received considerable editing of the acetate derived 'blips'..
