The waveform is that of track 3 “Take Five”. As for Ed 4, the waveform shows an even louder signal and clipping (see the zoom below).

Zooming on the audio signal show many clipping (in yellow). The signal, which is beyond the capability of the CD, is simply cut off. This defect produces strong harmonics in the high-frequency range.
