Live show audience noise

Listening to Getz Au Go Go. I understand that when they made the recording, the audience were asked to refrain from whistling in appreciation. Unfortunately, they didn't. I find it irritating that so many recordings are spoiled by excessive whistling. Opinions?

Well recorded audience noise is one of the best things about live recordings, being able to place each sniffle and clink of a glass is a great test of verisimilitude. For example, a visitor brought round a live Horowitz CD yesterday and I really enjoyed teasing out the differences between creaking chairs and the noise of the piano action. For me it's these idiosyncrasies and "faults" in a recording that make this hobby real and why I often prefer live versions to the studio originals
Audiences have become increasingly rude and noisy, ruining not only live recordings but concerts as well. Unfortunately, asking the audience not to make too much noise only alerts the idiots who want to hear themselves on the record.

I don’t think anything can be done about it because these people have paid their $25 and damn it! they’re going to whistle and yell whenever they want! I don’t see the trend reversing any time soon.
