Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Digitally remastered collection of rare, live and unreleasedacoustic material handpicked by Belew himself. 17 tracks. 1999 release.

As a member of the '80s edition of King Crimson, vocalist-guitarist Adrian Belew established himself as a progressive musician with a quirky stage persona and a head full of ideas. Since first working with Crimson, Belew has played with the likes of David Bowie, the Talking Heads, and Nine Inch Nails and has released a number of solo albums. On Salad Days Belew abandons the role of prog-guitar hero and presents an acoustic-based collection of solo performances live and in the studio. Selecting compositions from his long, varied career as well as some new songs, Belew displays Beatles-style pop roots, imposing musicianship, and an ironic sense of humor. Stripped to the basics, Belew's voice and guitar playing are playful, intimately engaging, and ultimately worthwhile. --Mitch Myers

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming, creative, very musical and different. March 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is really exceptional stuff. Adrian shows just how great a songwriter he is by presenting his music wih as much simplicity as possible, and all-acoustically! "Never Enough" is an excellent pop tune in the traditional sense, and "Men In Helicopters" shows what a really creative artist can do with pop music forms. And the two sound-collage pieces on the album show just how inventive he can be in a different way. And I'm sure King Crimson fans will get a huge kick out of hearing his live, solo acoustic rendition (in Argentina!) of "Three Of A Perfect Pair." I wonder if maybe people who think of Adrian as being kind of a technically-oriented musician will be encouraged to realize that it's his personality that is what draws you in the most, and it really comes out here in his excellent lyrics, singing and unique approach to life in general. Pretty darn charming! I would think if you didn't really know much about Adrian Belew, this would be a good place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like Adrian Belew you will like this CD ! July 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
At a time when everbody is unplugged it only seems fitting that Adrian Belew should do it. More than just being unplugged one really gets the sense that many of these songs are being presented as he first played them; at the conception stage. Other songs, such as "Men in Helicopters" are stripped of a larger production yet added is a moving string ensemble that is perfect. An acoustic version of "The Rail Song" makes me think of why I love Belew so much; it is the lyrical message and musical simplicity that are combined to make touching songs. Two live songs round this CD out and make it a collectible item for a Belew fan. This CD is great !

It's a wonderful album, probably more geared towards the mainstream, who are not familiar with Belew. Mostly because of the near lack of newly released tracks, only two new ones here. But all in all, it's a real great album. Keep in mind this is not an electric album, it is a totally acoustic album, although it's amazing how heavy it gets at times. Well worth the listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Belew disc June 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
You can't beat it: Just Adrian Belew and a guitar - includes some great songs. Amazing how much emotion comes through on these tracks as compared to original studio arrangements.
Funny thing is, I originally admired Adrian Belew for his eccentric and totally original guitar riffs and solos, but this CD has none of that.
Listen to Salad Days to appreciate his talent as a song composer and lyricist.
