There's a lot going on there Dave, with the stereo LP dub adding some
artifacts. Do you mean the scrape-sounds that are modulated by loud peaks or
the sort of slap-back effect, most noticeable on the drums? Might help to
hear take 2.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Why Does Take 1 of Jimmy Lunceford's "White Heat" Sound
I have parked a file of it here: https://www.box.com/s/6hq39rgxp0nd53pnty0n
This comes from X LP LX 3002, which was issued in 1953. It is not one of
Ethel Gabriel's enthusiastically skewered "simulated stereo" remixes, but
this weird flanging effect is in the mono original.
I used to have a buff Bluebird that had this very take on it, and when I
listened to it, I would think "What in the world.....??"
It sounds like it could have been the result of two mikes out of phase, or
two takes cut into the same platter, but if that was the case you'd hear
artifacts in the trumpet solo, not the case here. There
is a more common take 2 that sounds normal. Mx. is BS-81324 according to
the jacket notes of LX 3002, recorded 1-26-1934.
