If you play along with the recording on a guitar tuned with a digital tuner you'll find the chords in the chart just a little low. If you play the song a half step higher you'll find the half step is too high. I suspect that the record's producers wanted a little more energy from the track, and so sped it up just a little. Speeding up the track would also make it just a little bit higher in pitch. This was not an unusual practice when the track was recorded in 1973. To test my theory I used iRehearse, which is a digital phrase trainer that allows you to change the pitch and/or tempo of digital sound files. (It's a great rehearsal tool.) By lowering the pitch about 1/2 semi-tone (aka -50 "cents") I was able to bring the recording back into perfect tune.
