15 Awesome Facts You Didn’t Know About Led Zeppelin

THE OCEAN PHONE

It is a piece of rock trivia that goes right along those stories of what is heard when you play an old Beatles record backwards. During the Led Zeppelin song “The Ocean,” you can hear what sounds like a ringing telephone in the background – particularly at about the 1:37-1:38 mark. Eddie Kramer, who was present during the recording process, implied during an interview that the sound being part of the song was purely accidental and that he did not recall a phone ringing. It is believed that Zeppelin used such great technology that it even picked up the phone in the background, and that the sound was either missed or ignored before the album was finalized.
