My guess is phase problems due to use of two or more mics.
The mics themselves would not need to be wired out of phase
to produce such interference effects which are due to arrival-
time differences. All the 'X' LPs are of course mono, and the 
file Dave posted is mono also, so the comments about stereo 
are puzzling...and the 'X' LPs were produced without any 
noise removal processing, but possibly some re-equalization.
