4.0 out of 5 stars The music is still a treat after almost 20 yrs., June 12, 2007
This review is from: Traveling Wilburys (2 CD / 1 DVD) (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.

How do the videos look on the DVD? I know the home movies of recording and rehearsing will look not so great, but how about the actual music videos? Did they remaster those for the DVD?

Also, what kind of goodies are in the deluxe box version (postcards?)
Thanks.

I didn't write about the videos because they're just the same old videos I've seen several times before. Somehow I couldn't get too excited about that. The visual and audio quality are pretty good, though. No, there are no other extras, unless you count the mildly interesting liner notes in the booklet.
