Product Description

Featuring classics like "Handle With Care," "End Of The Line," and "Heading For The Light," super-group Traveling Wilbury's Collection highlights all of the band's music and previously unreleased bonus tracks through this re-mastered double album. The DVD features behind the scenes footage of the band writing and recording, along with their 5 video clips. Limited edition Deluxe package includes 40-page booklet and other exclusive extras.

The Traveling Wilburys were one of the few supergroups that lived up to their promise, because they didn't try to. Things started inauspiciously when George Harrison, needing a B-side for a 1988 single, called in friends Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Roy Orbison for assistance. Two albums later--the second without Orbison, who had passed away shortly after the first was released--the loose-knit collective had recorded material that was as durable, and occasionally eclipsed, the participants' legendary solo work. The Wilburys succeeded due to a genial and contagious camaraderie that permeates both discs. What could have been a train wreck of ego clashes instead resulted in a frothy meeting of the minds. These guys are having a blast, trading lead vocals and harmonies on energetic folk-rock, quirky rockabilly, and Beatlesque pop that shimmers with the respect and esteem the members clearly hold for each other. Harrison and Lynne's rather slick production polishes off edges that might better have been left unvarnished, but there's no denying the loosey-goosey craftsmanship at work in tunes such as "Handle with Care," "End of the Line," and a striking Orbison performance on "Not Alone Anymore" that ranks with any of his finest. Both albums were million-sellers, but oddly went out of print for about a decade until Rhino resurrected them, adding two rare tracks per disc as well as a DVD of music videos and a band documentary. The resulting package is a comprehensive overview of a once--well, twice--in-a-lifetime project that, especially after Harrison's passing, will never be repeated. --Hal Horowitz

I guess that based on some of the comments, I am one of the lucky ones. I pre-ordered this set in early May and it shipped a couple of days before the actual release date. It arrived a couple of days after the day of issue, but based on my Amazon price of $24.99 for the deluxe set, the same price as the standard edition in most of the "super-stores" in my area, that couple of days of waiting were not too bad.

I rate this set as five stars based on the price I paid. If I paid the near 40 Dollars for the limited edition set as it is priced locally, I might not feel the "extras" are worth 15 extra Dollars. The standard set of two CDs and the DVD are worth $24.99, and indeed, the deluxe set has the standard set inserted into a larger box. So for that extra 15 Dollars you get a small book with photos and narrative about the group, a couple of postcards with generic vintage photos (not of the group) announcing the "Wilburys are coming", and a couple of photos of the actual group playing. There is also a number of issue supposedly from 1 to 50,000, mine being 26, XXX for a set that was sent out before the release date.

The actual reason that I wanted this set, already being in possession of the original vols. 1 and 3 CDs was that DVD, and I was not disappointed. The documentary of the group's initial formation as well as the production of vol. 1 was great to watch. The production value is 1980s home video, but that was when this documentary was shot, so it is true to that era. There is no Dolby 5.1, but the basic stereo works for the low-tech group of rock and rollers. As I watched it, I wished I could have been a fly on the wall during that very short period of terrific synergistic creativity. The lack of ego from these rock-gods and the fun of this endeavor came through.

Wow, what a week! First Paul's "Memory Almost Full", now the Traveling Wilburys. And Ringo's "Liverpool 8" comes out this month too! Feels like the '70 all over again...Sorry to digress.
I just listened to/watched the "Deluxe Edition" CD and documentary and videos. It doesn't get much better than this! "Hall of Fame" vocals, loads of outstanding guitar playing, to-die-for harmonies, all high energy but laid back fun. George formed this group from close friends. Those relationships shine through on every track. The classy packaging reminds me of first opening "The Concert For Bangladesh" or "All Things Must Pass". Lots of postcards, pictures, and a very sturdy box and "Wilbury's History Book". My only complaint: No lyrics! Unbelieveable! Best moments...."Archive" footage of all sessions, especially Roy Orbison's vocals on "Not Alone Any More" and George leading the band through "End Of The Line". Pure Pleasure..............

As the author of the Jefferson Airplane book "Take Me To A Circus Tent" and a former radio disc-jockey, I am often asked to write and or discuss various music supplies and recordings from the 60's and 70's.

You've heard the terms "Supergroup", "Rock "Legends", and "Heavyweights." The Traveling Wilburys exemplified the terms but what made the project so extraordinary were some other expressions "Respect", "Fun", and "Egos in check."

The opening track "Handle With Care" may be the best song written in the past twenty years. The sound of the guitars, the Harrison vocal segments, and the blending of the words and music make this a song for the ages. It is an example of a tune so powerful and addicting that if the rest of the CD were blank justice wouldn't be served if we didn't purchase a copy. The consistency of the tracks the guys penned is a credit to their collective genius. "Heading For The Light" is another instant classic. The vocals are delivered with such sincerity you feel that you are in the recording studio. "Tweeter And The Monkey Man" is Dylan magic. At any moment Dylan could deliver a masterful performance. The song is as eventful as the wonderful words found on "Desire" and Blood On The Tracks." When the follow-up CD came out many unjustly only wanted to compare it to the debut. The new release will be a great excuse to rediscover some brilliant compositions. "The Devil's Been Busy", "Where Were You Last Night?", and "Cool Dry Place" are reason alone that the follow-up should have been placed on a higher pedestal.

The bonus tracks are more than a generous holiday gift. "Nobody's Child" which originally appeared as a charity song for the Romanian earthquake victims is a song that any artist should be honored to have on one of their releases.

I'd just started converting to CDs when the first Taveling Wilburys album came out. For some reason I bought the album insead of the disc. That probably had to do with the fact that all of these long established musicians were recording long before discs became the norm and buying the album just came naturally. Harrison, Petty, Orbison, Dylon, Lynn and I'm including Keltner as well, because his drumming is absolutely essential to this group, came together and made some fine music. They did it simply and directly by working together as friends and fellow respected creators and craftsmen and forged a union that was so natural it defied the stardom they each enjoyed seperately. For me this is what making music is all about. It's this ability for a group of guys to sit together and hammer out the music and lyrics that will then be recorded and make it's way out into the world to touch people in ways subtle and profound. While Roy Orbison was missed for the "3rd" album his spirit was just as evident as a fresh breeze stirring your hair on a hot summer day. The release of the bonus material was also a natural progression for this set. Watching those vidoes and the recording sessions made time stand still for a little while. For the time I watched that footage Roy and George were still in this world.

Second Edition in blue...
That's good information, but I'm not sure whether you're IMPLYING anything. So here's some more information: They released this second run of the limited edition deluxe set because the first one sold out so surprisingly fast, not so that people would plunk down more money for another one.......

Concerning Mr. Jeff Lynne
OMG! ELO is one of my all time fave groups. I agree, who cares about what an artist does with his hair, facial or otherwise. Jeff Lynne is a great artist. There is so much negativity in the world. It's time to take a step back, people. Look in the mirror and ask yourself "WHY am I so... Read More

new editions of wilburys in november
That's great they're releasing more of the deluxe edition since I didn't get to find one. Why? It's b/c people like you who buy 3 copies of the same boxset----1 to play and 2 to hoard then resell again to someone else for an insane price. Do the rest of us a favor and don't buy any of the new... Read More

Why is this not available the day of release???
Go to Best Buy. They have it for $34. Not as cheap as Amazon had it listed at ($25), but it isn't available via Amazon yet (go figure). I pre-ordered mine on Amazon over a month ago, but cancelled it today and drove out to Best Buy instead.
