Iconic bassist John Wetton, best known for his work with King Crimson and Asia, is releasing two albums this month.
New York Minute captures a live set from Wetton with the Les Paul Trip, recorded at the Iridium club in New York City in 2013. The list of tunes, many of which have not been previously available on record, includes “Lady Madonna,” “All Along the Watchtower,” Can’t Find My Way Home” and Asia’s “Heat of the Moment,” as well as Wetton’s solo hit, “Battle Lines.”
The Studio Recordings Anthology is a compilation of 32 tracks culled from Wetton’s solo releases. The 2-CD collection features the likes of Robert Fripp, Steve Lukather, Steve Hackett, Geoff Downes, Ian McDonald and several others.
