Stanton Moore - Groove Alchemy - bad resonance?

This post is a little late but nonetheless. . .

I love the music but the sound is really off putting in the mid-bass range. Given the picture in the sleeve it appears these gentleman recorded live in a room together - which is to be applauded. However the resonance affects everything. The low toms, the bass , the piano, the organ etc. I will run a check tomorrow to see where the offending range is but my guess is it will be a product of a room node. How did they not hear this on playback? Headphones? Crappy monitors in a crappy control room? Did they not care? Was the studio really this bad? Who is their sound engineer/ Who set that room up? And worse of all how did this either get past the Stereophile reviewer,not get mentioned in the article or wasn't reflected in the rating? Most of the tunes literally sound like most systems at audio shows. You know that mid-bass hump we all have to ignore.

(And yes I know it's not my room because I know what my offending nodes are and treat them using various methods)

I checked it on the FFT and there is at least 6db too much energy between 50 and 150hz.
