A lead-up to the band's 30th Anniversary celebrations next year.

The merits of live albums can often be the cause of contention within a band's fanbase; usually they're stop-gaps between new studio albums or at worse, a quick cash-in to fulfil a contract. When it comes to acoustic albums, the debate is even more unbalanced between those who like them and those who don't have the patients to sit through a full listening session. 

'Acoustic Gypsy Live' is a lead-up to the band's 30th Anniversary celebrations next year. We all know the genesis of the band with Axl Rose on vocals back in the day before Guns N' Roses blah blah blah so it's not worth retreading here. This 14 track live album was recorded at the famed Hotel Café in Hollywood with a line-up of guitarist Tracii Guns, bassist Danny Nordahl, drummer Chad Stewart, percussionist Doni Gray, guitarist Muddy Stardust, keyboardist Teddy Andreadis (Zig Zag) and singer Jizzy Pearl (who has since left the band for the second time).

The setlist features the new song 'Little Soldier,' the Otis Redding cover 'These Arms Of Mine' and the second cover 'Love Hurts,' which was initially recorded by The Everly Brothers. The set begins a little too mellow even for an acoustic album but thankfully the band pick up speed a little and get into some groove with 'Over The Edge.' Pearl's voice is in decent shape and the band sound well-rehearsed but it's just one of those albums that will be filed away in your collection and forgotten about. Still, it's cool the band can do something like this and sound authentic. 

They've definitely got a passion for what they're doing and it comes through on this recording.
