 He means the entire song is recorded flat (which drives us people with perfect pitch insane!!)

 I suppose if Ravenscroft added the rift, shouldn't he have writing credit ?
In his obit its mentioned that he said the song is out of tune flat. Now did he mean the sax bit, which actually creates a minor melancholy bit to the track, or the Rafferty part, which is slightly out, (thats my excuse as to why I cannot sing it)

 I can confidently say now that this original Vinyl SINGLE version of the song is the definitive version.

Newer re-masters have diluted it out into some kind of floaty "magical" track, whereas this sounds snappy (due to the quick tempo bongos played throughout), immediate, and even sleazy due to the vocal right in the mic, and all instruments right in your ear.

... Even the original album version is different, quick tempo, but "hurried" sounding, and I could almost swear it has different vocal track altogether.

This is the one to get.

 Just noticed that the solid centre scans of this record have a much longer edge text than any of the push-outs. Weird.
