    Fun fact: the rain sound was bacon sizzling in a skillet. Now, enjoy thinking, "yummmmm, bacon" every time you hear that track.

    Some of Dylan's '60s mono reissues from a few years back have a very 'in the room' vibe. Hwy 61 in particular sounds like a bar band, just plugging away in the corner, something the stereo version lacks.

    The Beatles - Yer Blues. They all got together in a small room with amps, drums etc all in the room to record it.

    Exactly what came to my mind too. Especially this track 'Silencio'. Bonus cameo of a burst Tele too

    "Tone Poems", David Grisman and Tony Rice: Like most of the Acoustic Discs is recorded beautifully. It sounds like these 2 premier players are sitting in the room with you playing these vintage acoustic instruments.

    "Blue and Lonesome", Rolling Stones: Like you were in the room with the boys as they were just having some fun. Great production work by Don Was who basically put this whole recording together "on the fly" as they were recording a totally different record.

    ...just to name 2...

    Allman Bros Live From A&R Studios (NYC) recorded on Aug. 26, 1971. This one was available as a bootleg for a long time but was formally released in 2016. Great energy on all the familiar songs from that period. They were just plain "on" when this one was recorded. Another "in the room" recording.

    I think they all had some minor overdubs, but I would consider them live.

    C.W. Stoneking's "Gon' Boogaloo" was recorded using a single 1930's mic.




    And another record which I always loved for its raw sound was Tom Waits' "Bone machine"

    A hand-held cassette recording in a room, a landmark of lo-fi, something I only listen to occasionally.
