Audiences that won't shut up during live recordings
I was reminded of this since Mom sometimes tells me this story about how she, as a teenager, provided background vocaIs with a dozen others during a Lou Rawls recording. It made me think of how funny it is when hoots, hollers and table conversation are audible on live albums. Examples: Monk's "It Club" session has a phone ringing in the background and there's a guy rambling to someone else ("oh wow! yeah, it sounds like that....Sure..") while Cal Tjader is playing on "Live At The Funky Quarters". Any others?
