For Immediate Release

King Crimson / Asia Legend John Wetton Releases “Official Bootleg Archive Vol 1” Six CD Set! 
OUT NOW!

London, UK - John Wetton is best known as lead singer and bassist of Asia, UK and the Red-era of King Crimson, with an extensive solo catalogue. The “Official Bootleg Archive” collects together three of Wetton's previously released “Official Bootlegs” - which have been out of print for nearly 10 years! 

The “Official Bootleg Archive Vol 1” six CD set's audio has been remastered and includes new artwork, fully approved by John Wetton. The set is the seventh title released on John Wetton’s own Primary Purpose imprint via Cherry Red Records.

As a singer, bassist and songwriter, John Wetton initially rose to fame in King Crimson and the third album that line-up released was Red, cited by so many artists as a core influence. After his period with King Crimson, Wetton co-founded UK and later he was the frontman and co-principal songwriter of the supergroup Asia, his biggest commercial success. The band’s self-titled debut album was the biggest selling album in the world in 1982 and gave the world the mega hit Heat of the Moment. 

Since 1980 Wetton has had a successful solo career releasing a number of studio and live albums and later formed the duo iCon with Geoff Downes (YES, Buggles and ASIA).  As a writer and musician Wetton has collaborated with many music artists including Ringo Starr, Jim Peterik, Robert Fripp, David Gilmour, Agnetha Fältskog, Phil Manzanera, Steve Howe, Bill Bruford, Alan White, Carl Palmer, Simon Phillips, Steve Lukather, Terry Bozzio, George Martin, Bryan Ferry, Ron Nevison and Steve Hackett.
