The Long Ear

First in an ongoing series of box sets celebrating the life and times of this incredible musician. This 8CD collection includes John's six solo albums, each with bonus material which have been fully remastered by Maor Appelbaum. Also included are 2CDs of extremely rare and hard-to-find bonus material, especially curated by Rick Nelson, long-time Wetton archivist and John's close friend. This material is a treasure trove of wonders for the true Wetton fan. Presented in a 12x12" box, this collection also features an extensive 64 page book with notes written by Nick Shilton, author of John's biography, An Extraordinary Life and artwork by Michael Inns, long-time friend and collaborator of John's. This box set has been carefully curated with the blessing of John's wife Lisa and son Dylan and is released with the full support of the Wetton estate. From his beginnings in the genre defining King Crimson, to the inventive, early prog supergroup UK, to the all-conquering prog-pop behemoth that was Asia and the many projects in-between, John Wetton was revered as a colossus of the progressive rock world. Not only did he front three of the most successful progressive rock bands of all-time, John also enjoyed stints with Roxy Music, Family, Uriah Heep and Wishbone Ash. His list of collaborators is a veritable Who's Who of the rock music world. In addition John released no fewer than six solo albums! Thus he is rightly seen as a true song writing visionary and one of the greatest bass players that ever lived.
