Dweller on the Threshold hihat -- QUE???


Can someone please enlighten me as to WHY Van Morrison's otherwise beautiful "Dweller on the Threshold" has that horrible icepick EQ on the hihat?  I've confirmed this in several systems.  What were the engineers/producers thinking and how could George approve it?

mix  level not EQ issue per se...
yes its at least a couple , three db hot...but listenable thru an accurate tweeter..IMO
the horns are spot on...certainly makes one appreciate them...

Listenable but could be oh so better
Agreed, and on some systems can be quite annoying.
