Lots of recordings were (sometimes intentionally) speed up/slowed down before final mastering, so that, even if the band was tuned to concert pitch, it isn't in the released version.
If you have a concert pitch-tuned instrument at hand, you can generally play along with these if the recording's pitch ends up within 15 cents or so of some note within concert pitch. E.g. if a recorded A is close to concert Bb or G#, you can play along in the next key up/down.
Is there a formal term for when a recording, or another musician, is pitched too far away from concert pitch to be "compatible" with concert pitch-tuned instruments? E.g. A = 452Hz (440 + 50 cents). I've heard this referred to as "in the cracks", but is there a more precise term?
I wouldn't say the recording is "out of tune" (though many individual instruments may be), and something like "off pitch" to me doesn't necessarily imply that the current pitch is in one of the dissonant ranges.
