Re: ending ambient pieces when playing LIVE shows

Groove Holmes used to have a tape Echoplex in his Hammond tone shaping 

i heard about a nightclub gig he did soon after getting it (this was 
the late sixties) where the last song of the night he hit the fiinal 
chord, cranked the feedback on the 'Plex all the way to the max, and 
whole band left the stage. he let the loop go for a minute or so, and 
then pulled the plug on the organ ... from behind the stage.

doesn't sound too special now, but this was the late sixties.
