Problem with mp3 file

Hi.
I found a certain mp3 file that I'm having trouble with. Both Foobar and Winamp show the bitrate as 32 kbps and inaccurate length even though it is much higher, I'm betting 256 judging by the file size. I tried the rebuild mp3 stream option, it didn't work. Also mp3wall repair tool also not working. Is there anything else that can be done with this file or are there any other tools? Below is a link.

Thanks in advance.

Hmm, you can repair it with foobar (fix header and rebuild stream) and ffmpeg (-c copy) and you will get 244 kbit/s 9.19 MB file.
If you use mp3packer you will get 219 kbit/s 8.26 MB file.
