I guess my question is in the title; are there any?

What would something like Castle Bravo or Tsar Bomba sound like up close?

Any recording is going to be limited to your playback system.
So any big boom is going to sound like any big boom.

If you want to rattle yourself, just go rent a 2,000watt PA system, turn it to 11 and play back any explosion.

There should be plenty of recordings. I think I have one on a sound effects CD. Just remember, when you hear it, the explosion already occurred several seconds before you heard it because sound travels slower than light.
