Nothing obviously wrong with that. It would help if we could hear the unprocessed recording. I do hear some artifacts probably from the noise reduction.It sounds like you started with a low bandwidth recording. EQ cannot bring back portions of the audio spectrum that were never recorded or that have been lost. If you aggressively EQ a noisy recording, you may get more balanced program but you often end up making the noise unacceptably prominent.Trade offs everywhere. That's why mastering is more art than science.
I'm hearing the same thing there plus noise. Might be tape speed flutter. There are some experimental techniques that can remove this. I'd take your best cut at it right now. Make sure to save an unprocessed version of the recording so that you can try again in the future when better tools are available.

Curious whether you agree.http://www.ganggarrison.com/filehost/s1_excerpt_eq.oggOnce more for comparison, un-eq'd version is http://www.ganggarrison.com/filehost/s1_excerpt.flac
(didn't keep the unedited version around because I was happy with the NR).
This will only adjust high frequecies between channels to match per tape-to-head misalignment, though ideally this would have been done by adjusting the head alignment before transfer.
What are you listening through. MedO?
Well, the noise is worse. When I was "restoring" my tapes, I would deal with the noise first, leaving recording as intact as I could.
