I am particularly interested in rain recordings in Time Square or NYC from the 1950s-1970s. I would appreciate any leads about where I could locate this type of recording.
I assume you're looking for the sound of rain falling.
There was an LP in the 1950s called "Echoes of the Storm", that
contained a recording of a thunderstorm from start to finish. It was
issued, c. 1956, by the Audiophile label. Don't know who owns the
rights, or where it was recorded.
The album, and the fact that a major audiophile label from that era
wrote liner notes, in the form of haiku, once inspired me to try my
hand. The poem is untitled.
