They sure did. Earl Garner, Lionel Hampton, Earl "father" Hines (and others) all grunted, groaned and moaned as they played.

Someone definitely knocks over a music stand in one recording I have of a Vaughn Williams piece....."Flos Campi" I think.

I don't know if this observation qualifies for this thread but I think I read somewhere that some vinyl recordings from the Los Angeles area occasionally contained low frequency rumbles from small earthquakes........
Anyone verify that?

I've also read once that there is a CD that unintendedly has very-low-frequency transmitter signals on it, but I forgot all details.

My guess is a squeaky reel or other circular device in rotation.

I know some others, care to guess what they are?
It is the squeak of the bass drum pedal.

For Beatles fans, there's a great old book, Beatles Recording Sessions, with very detailed notes, including many explanations for the various random noises that can be heard from time to time on these iconic recordings. It's fun to listen as you read to hear where, for example, one of the boys left a wine bottle sitting (and rattling) on top of the Leslie organ speaker.

Yes, the ubiquitous Ludwig "Speed King" pedal was notorious for this, and can be heard on many famous records. Its nickname was "Squeak King."

My favorite recent discovery is on the multichannel DVD-Audio release of Donald Fagen's Kamakiriad. During the song "Countermoon," there are several random, very low-frequency (~28 Hz) noises that are fairly loud and somewhat startling. It sounds exactly like someone stumbling on the staircase outside my living room in the hallway of my apartment building.

I still haven't figured out what might have caused these sounds in the studio. Also, they are present on the stereo CD release, but at such a reduced level that I never noticed them until I went back and listened again.
