Both albums are great examples of Belew's early 80's. Anyone who owned the original LPs may want to reconsider purchasing the CD collection though. The Lone Rhino transfer sounds fine but the Twang Bar King transfer sounds really bad. Extremely noisy, harsh and at times uncompressed to the point of being obnoxious. Don't know what happened but they dropped the ball on reissuing two really good records here.

Format: Audio CD
First I like both of Belew's solo albums but this isn't the disc to buy when it comes to "Twang Bar King". Along with Richard Thompson's "Across a Crowded Room" this has got to be one of the worst reissues put out. While the highlights of both albums earn a solid four or five stars, the sound quality on "Twang Bar King" sounds like it was played through speakers and recorded again for this master. My guess is that they used the wrong master or a copy (since the original mastertapes were missing for years) vs. the new remaster created for the Japanese reissue. The same problem occurred with Richard Thompson's "Across a Crowded Room" which also sounds pretty bad (plus that CD has one track sped up slightly in order to allow the song to fit on an LP side). Perhaps they used the masters prepared for the compilation album but even that sounded better than this.

I'd suggest going for the Japanese remaster if you can find it. Personally I found "Lone Rhino" the more ambitious of the two. Sure Belew wears his influences on his sleeve but he also deftly makes them his own on all the songs. Some of the material doesn't quite work on both albums but both are worthwhile additions to your CD collection.

Format: Audio CD
Has someone who has heard the BGO issue of this CD please provide a brief report or review regarding its sound quality? Is it full and detailed, as opposed to thin and lacking both low and high end? Also, is it taken from vinyl as some previous "official" issues have been? All current reviews published are in reference to the previous two-fer issue on Gott that was plagued with lackluster sound. I was about to buy this BGO edition outright and find out for myself how it sounds, until I saw the brilliant attention to detail paid by the art director on the cover titling "Twang Bar King" as "Twang Bar Kid". It doesn't exactly inspire confidence that they got the sound right either. Until I know for sure, I'll stick with the carefully mastered two-fer I made myself.

Adrian's first 2 albums are a great intro to the wild musical world of Belew. Lone Rhino has some stellar guitar work as would be expected. The Rail Song from Twang Bar King is awesome. And, Belew does a smokin' rendition of the Beatles' I'm Down. If you like King Crimson with Belew, you will appreciate these 2 albums.

If you like Belew's pop song craft and melodic music, catchy hooks, etc., this one's for you. It's a very tuneful affair, not much on metal riffage and thunder. Wish Belew was still making music like this.
