Never thought about it that way. :-)
I don’t think my ears were trained to notice those differences. I do know there were differences in it hitting pavement vs roadway vs window. And frozen rain/sleet/hail vs spring/summer liquid rain.

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.
