Introduction: This song was selected about a week ago but, given the history of this week for me, it seemed perhaps a questionable choice. However, I decided that a stairway to heaven is appropriate and, more importantly, this is the most uplifting version of this song that I have ever heard. The end result …. the original Post stays.

This is such an exciting Post for me, because I am not a great Led Zeppelin fan. However, I really don’t think that anybody would argue against “Stairway to Heaven” being considered classic rock … and then there are Ann and Nancy Wilson (Heart).
The link below is (to me) an incredibly moving arrangement of “Stairway to Heaven” with Ann and Nancy Wilson taking charge. Led Zeppelin are in the audience and are, quite naturally, following every note in this performance. I found it interesting to watch Jimmy Page as he “monitors” the lead guitar solo.
If you are anything like me, you will be totally exhilarated, and exhausted, at the end! Enjoy.
