I would first of all suspect the cassette tape transport of not being the correct speed. If you have multiple cassette players, double check the tapes on those other players to see if they sound fast on those tapes too. Cassette motors and transports are notorious for not being totally accurate.

So many problems with cassettes on the whole and this is definitely one of them. Another huge one was the awful Dolby B that only sounded good if you played the tape back on the same deck you encoded it on. I'd just stick to the LP or the CD. Avoid pre-recorded cassettes entirely. Heck, I avoid them all and most of us do now.
