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 front-man and co-principal songwriter of the super group Asia, his biggest commercial success. The band’s self-titled debut album was the biggest selling album in the world in 1982, which included 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 keyboard wizard Geoff Downes (YES, Buggles and ASIA). As a writer and musician, Wetton has collaborated with many music artists over the years 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.
