Review & Description
This is the best record of it s kind ever made. Then again, it's also the only record of its kind ever made.
. . . one of the few rock supergroups actually deserving to be called either super or a group. Rolling Stone, 1988
With a line-up featuring legendary artists Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty, the Traveling Wilburys
were a one-of-a-kind musical phenomenon. The all-star configuration came about when they convened at a Southern California
studio in 1988 to record a b-side for a Harrison s single. They had such a rockin good time cutting Handle With Care that they decided to release it under the Wilburys moniker, and to continue the collaboration with an album's worth of songs. Their
camaraderie is heard in every groove on Rhino's remastered reissue of their now-historic, GRAMMY®-winning debut VOLUME 1.
They followed it up in 1990 with a second full-length, VOLUME 3 the disc was minus Orbison, who passed away in 88, but still
full of the spirit that made their musical brotherhood the stuff of legend. After being out of print for more than a decade, Rhino
reintroduced the classic discs boasting previously unreleased bonus tracks in 2007 as part of a special 2CD/DVD set The
Traveling Wilburys Collection. The expanded VOLUME 1 and VOLUME 3 are now available as individual titles.
