The liner notes that came with this album starts with "You start in the barren dessert, and then you walk through the woods". I do not agree. This is a superbly executed soundtrack to long forgotten genres of science fiction movies about terraforming new planets. It should be treated this way when you listen to this excellent album. If you are only in for the Jazz - go away. This isn't remotely in the Jazz family. It's something different. However, if you are in for some exciting inner eye imagery - then this is a collectible must-have.

Just as a side note. There's no editing done at the points you claim as mixing errors.
It's all there (piano phrases and damper noise) as captured by the microphones.
Sometimes the imperfections add more life to music than the clinical perfection.
