It was not until the beginning of the year that Fury In The Slaughterhouse released a best-of-album with some new songs to coincide with their 30th anniversary. Now, Kai Wingenfelder, Thorsten Wingenfelder, Christof Stein-Schneider, Rainer Schumann, Gero Drnek and Christian Decker will present another highlight for their fans: the new concert album »Little Big World: Live & Acoustic«. The Acoustic album was recorded live at the end of April in the Hamburger Grünspan. 23 songs are waiting, including many Fury classics. In addition, some exciting guests are waiting for »Little Big World: Live & Acoustic«, for example producer Mousse T. and Kölschrocker Wolfgang Niedecken.
In the dense annual blizzard of holiday albums, A VERY SPECIAL ACOUSTIC CHRISTMAS shines like a gleaming treetop star from a warm, inviting living room, thanks to its organic, no-frills approach and its remarkable lineup of performers. Dan Tyminski (of O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? fame) offers up a charming version of "Frosty the Snowman," while Willie Nelson lends his legendary voice and guitar playing to a fine take on "Please Come Home for Christmas." Alison Krauss contributes her surprisingly poppy "Only You Can Bring Me Cheer (Gentleman's Lady)," Marty Stuart confides that "Even Santa Claus Gets the Blues," and Pat Green saunters through a relaxed "Winter Wonderland." Bringing the Yuletide album to an appropriate close is Norah Jones, in a beautiful solo rendition of Horace Silver's "Peace".
