A Garden Tapes feature
by Eddie Edwards
The Garden Tapes » How The West Was Won » The Ocean
As far can be ascertained from the bootleg tapes, "Rock and Roll" was the only encore played at Long Beach. In contrast, the LA audience was treated to one of the longest and best strings of encores Zep ever indulged in, but not all of these have been included on "How The West Was Won". There was plenty of room for all of them on disc 3 so presumably some were rejected for quality reasons.
"The Ocean" is the complete version from LA. A couple of disturbing feedback howls at 0:46 and 0:56 have been expunged but other than that there's nothing to report.
