The problem is that recording studios used to alter the pitch of their songs (and so the time of the song) slightly, in order to get the songs to play within the limits imposed by Radio stations, and to get everything to fit onto an LP. (That was a vinyl disc that spun at 33 1/3 rotations per minute and a diamond stylus vibrated with the grooves on the LP, for those of you born after the 80's.)
