"Over The Hills and Far Away" was played before "Black Dog" in LA, but the official release follows the Long Beach running order.
"Black Dog" is from LA. Just a couple of minor fiddles with the vocals to report here. At 0:58 there are a couple of "Ah, yeahs" that do not appear on the bootleg recording. These are not duplications of the "Ah, yeahs" from a few seconds earlier - subtle differences reveal that they are from Long Beach. Also drafted in from Long Beach are the words, "Dreams of you" at 1:16, masking a slight crack in the voice on the LA recording.
