Biography

Biography by William Ruhlmann

Reversing the usual process by which groups break up and give way to solo careers, the Traveling Wilburys are a group made up of solo stars. The group was organized by former Beatle George Harrison, former Electric Light Orchestra leader Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Roy Orbison, thus representing three generations of rock stars. In 1988, the five ... Read more in Amazon's Traveling Wilburys Store

Editorial Reviews

Japanese pressing- Nearly twenty years after the creation of the band, and over a decade since the music was last available to fans, the music of the Traveling Wilburys will be reissued. The previously released albums Traveling Wilburys Volume 1 and Traveling Wilburys Volume 3 feature inarguably some of music's greatest singer-songwriters-George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan-as the iconic band the Traveling Wilburys. Both CDs will be combined into one release, The Traveling Wilburys Collection, and will feature bonus tracks of rare and newly mixed previously unreleased music along with a bonus DVD featuring an amazing 24-minute documentary showing unseen footage of the Wilburys and their five video clips, filmed largely on George Harrison's home video recorder. Warner. 2007.

4.0 out of 5 stars Travel back in time with the Wilburys June 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The two Traveling Wilbury albums that George Harrison cut with his friends are finally back in print. The first album is worth five stars. With a combination of Harrison, Lynne, Dylan, Petty, Orbison and honorary Wilbury Jim Keltner on drums how could it not be? "Volume 1" is a great album that hasn't aged for me at all. The two bonus tracks on disc one "Maxine" and "Like a Ship" are both terrific and would have fit well on the album. Sound is very good for the album with more punch to my ears.

The second album "Volume 3" missed Orbison but is almost as good as the first album. Definitely worth four stars in my book, Dylan is a bit more center stage on this one although all the Wilbury's still share lead vocals on a number of tracks. The two bonus tracks here have been released one on the "Nobody's Child" benefit album the other as the b-side of a single. The first "Nobody's Child" a cover of a 50's tune and the second a cover of Del Shannon's classic "Runaway" add to the album although they aren't quite as spectacular as "Maxine". FYI for completists--"Runaway" is DIFFERENT from the single version. Jeff Lynne went back overdubbed guitar/harmonica on it and some other bits as he was never quite satisfied with the "finished" version on the single.

"Volume 3" had two great singles the rocking "She's My Baby" and "Wilbury Twist" and while it still sounds terrific it doesn't quite have the off-hand vibe that made the first album perfect. It's still a terrific follow up.

The DVD has a documentary with interviews of the band and plenty of behind-the-scenes footage of the recording of the album as well as some clips from the first couple of singles. It also includes all five videos for the two albums.

What I think made the Traveling Wilburys so special was the spontaneous formation of these 5 über-rockers. George Harrison, wanting a little help for an extra track for his single This Is Love, got much more than just a B-side in what I consider one of the best pop rock songs of the 80's: Handle With Care. An idea for an album followed, and these extremely talented singer-songwriters formed a superb collection of tracks which would become Traveling Wilburys Volume 1. There isn't a single bad song in Volume 1, and it's no wonder it's listed as one of Rolling Stones 100 greatest albums of the 80's.

After Handle With Care, which needs no introduction, we get Bob Dylan's sexually suggestive rocker, Dirty World, followed by the country sounding Rattled, voiced by Jeff Lynne. On an album full of staggering hits, Rattled may very well be decent elsewhere, but may be my choice for the weakest of this album, if it's even right to call any of these songs weak. The catchiest track of the album, Last Night is probably the next strongest song, although Roy turns in a stunner with Not Alone Any More right after it. The album continues with the guys taking vocal and writing turns, and originally ended with End Of The Line.

I know some people may still feel volume 1 is superior, and considering the price of this set, and how much they can probably go out and get the out of print Volume 1 once this collection hits, some may be considering just finding the first Volume cheap. Well, one very strong argument not to get the original is that you are missing out on the George Harrison song Maxine. It's vintage George and it's a shock that this never made it on an album. It's a great never officially released song that every Harrison fan should have.

4.0 out of 5 stars The music is still a treat after almost 20 yrs. June 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The title of this set is simple and accurate, but it could also have been called "The Complete Traveling Wilburys." Since George Harrison was the original guiding inspiration for this fun, shambling supergroup, it's safe to say there won't be any new material, and so this set collects all that there was (audio & video). These guys were good friends, and their love of the music comes through in the music. For collectors, the bonuses contained in this collection are rather slight. On the DVD there's a 25-minute promo documentary on the recording sessions for Volume 1. It's pretty low quality footage of the home movie variety, but still an interesting insight into the dynamics of these legends getting together. Each of the two CDs has a pair of rare or previously unissued cuts, the choicest of which is a version of "Runaway" (with Volume 3). As for the two original albums, they stand up pretty well after all this time. Admittedly the songs on Volume 3 are less impressive, but there are still some keepers such as "7 Deadly Sins." All in all, I found it a joy to get reacquainted with this stuff several years on. Whether you pronounce it Will-breeze or Will-burries, this is a well assembled set that would be a good addition to your collection, especially if you don't already own both Volumes 1 & 3.

By the way, it really feels like the spirit of the Beatles is strong lately, what with George Harrison popping up on this reissue, McCartney putting out a new solo record, and the new Darfur-Lennon tribute album.
