    Quite hissy, though maybe that's inevitable.

    The version of "The Lone Rhinoceros" on this release is a different mix to the one on Adrian Belew - Desire Of The Rhino King- specifically, the vocals are either a different take, or processed differently; the most noticeable difference is that there's a "...Rhinoceros" vocal at about 3:21 of this version not present at all in the Desire of the Rhino King version. One or the other of these releases is thus using an unmarked alternate mix or remix of the track. The other shared tracks are, so far as I can tell, the same, though there might be other mix differences.
