3 stars 2 songs here, from a 1991 live album. "Stairway to Heaven" and Ravel's "Bolero". I am not sure if Frank meant this version of Stairway as a joke, but 9 minutes and 20 seconds seems a long time to use during a concert just for a joke. This tune has a reggae beat and lots of trumpetss in the background. Very interesting interpretation. I still like the original Zepplin version better, but this is not horrible, in fact it is good. 3 1/2 stars. The second tune here, "Bolero" is also done with lots of brass. I was never a big fan of this song, no matter who did it or how it is done. This is interesting, but I find it dull, like the original. 3 stars. Overall, 3 stars for this single. Both tunes are available elsewhere.
