    Live Recordings with Weather Interrupting

    I'm cleaning up a 1973 recording of Max Roach's M'Boom ensemble, playing live at the Laren Internationaal Jazz Festival in the Netherlands, and there is what sounds like thunder rolling through in the background.

    I'm trying to remember any other live recordings that caught weather in the mics. Eddie Harris & Les McCann at Montreaux? Charles Lloyd at Monterey? I mean, it MUST happen fairly frequently.

    Not weather, but a famous example of outside interference was the airplane flying overhead while Zeppelin was recording the album Physical Graffiti at Headley Grange...

    That was indoors. What they did capture was a seemingly random burst of applause in the middle of a solo, which turned out to be the audience reaction to Ella Fitzgerald entering the hall and taking her seat.

    There's Woodstock, of course.

    There's a Phish show from 1997 they released on DVD where a storm broke out towards the end of the first set. I could look up the details if anyone's curious.

    Also the jazz band V.S.O.P. had a record titled Live Under The Sky from the late 70's from a show where it rained. I haven't heard it.

    Intro to Big Brother from Rare Earth Live

    Funny, we used to copy the whole thing
    Including the stony “hey” after they say no one wants to fry in the water
    Enjoy

    There's an airplane if memory serves in "Hair Pie Bake II" or one of those tracks Beefheart "recorded in the bush."

    Well it was live, and there are recordings.
    Grateful Dead - Merriweather Post 6/20/83
    An awesome thunderstorm came through about half way, took the power out for a couple of seconds.
    The band played on. We had to wade through thigh deep water to get to the parking lot after the show.

    Neil Young - Red Rocks Live (Friends and Relatives), during a thunderstorm the winds bring the rain onto the stage and the crew is shown talking about shutting things down, but they continue and Pegi and Astrid Young are shown getting soaked.

    Are you sure that's not the tympani?

    That same thing happened multiple times on a recent ARW DVD.

    Anyone who was at Progday the year Wishbone Ash played will remember this one. I have a soundboard recording of the show. It rained throughout the show that day and there were storms all around the area. At one point in between songs a big lightning bolt struck the large radio tower located across the road from Storybook Farm. It was scary as hell and can clearly be heard on the recording. It has been a while since I listened to it, but Andy Powell says “whoa….” or something like that right after it happened.

    That's just an audio clip from Woodstock. The recordings were all from shows in 5 different hockey rinks.

    Ella Fitzgerald's ghost is a fan of ARW? Or was it Memorex?

    Walnut Creek, Raleigh, NC. Immediately thought of it when I saw the thread title.
