Good point, since it's Kickstarter and "pay-what-you-like", I'd be happy to pay for a version of the record undamaged by clipping and extreme compression.
So maybe that kind of effort could be crowd-funded. After all, mastering does cost money-- $500/track for pro mastering IIRC, plus any remixing that might be necessary to fix problems masked by the extreme compression. And there are like 20 tracks on this thing, so I guess if there are enough people to raise $10k+ then maybe it's make sense for her to remaster it with less compression and release an undamaged version of it.
Plus, if such an effort succeeds, it might even send a notice to other artists that there is a market for people who enjoy music that doesn't consist solely of square waves.
