"I don't have encyclopedic knowledge of the various configurations of the various bands Wetton has been in, so I'm no authority on whether there's anything rare or valuable here.
But if there is, it's been treated very shabbily.
This appears to be a collection of clips from a variety of sources. I can see some old Uriah Heep, some (not MkI) Asia, and I guess some clips of Wetton with his own band. There are also a couple of music videos thrown in.
The quality is fair-to-atrocious. Nothing has been remastered, and some of the video is VHS quality. A couple of clips appear to come from a source that included interviews, and the clip cuts in while the interviewee is still talking.
If you think there's something on here you really want, rent it first and make sure you won't feel cheated. For 75 minutes of bad video and mediocre sound, it's a lot of money to pay, no matter how good the music might be.
Wetton's recent "Amorata" DVD includes new versions of many of these older songs, and it looks and sounds a thousand times better.
