Overview

There never was a supergroup more super than the Traveling Wilburys. They had Jeff Lynne, the leader of ELO; they had Roy Orbison, the best pop singer of the '60s; they had Tom Petty, the best roots rocker this side of Bruce Springsteen; they had a Beatle and Bob Dylan, for crying out loud! It's impossible to picture a supergroup with a stronger pedigree than that (all that's missing is a Rolling Stone), but in another sense, it's hard to call the Wilburys a true supergroup, since they arrived nearly two decades after the all-star craze of the '70s peaked, and they never had the self-important air of nearly all the other supergroups. That, of course, was the key to their charm: they were a group of friends who fell together easily, almost effortlessly, to record a B-side for a single for George Harrison; they had such a good time they stuck around to record a full album, which became a hit upon its 1988 release. The Traveling Wilburys was big enough to convince the group to record a second album, cheerfully and incongruously titled Vol. 3, two years later despite the death of Orbison. Like most sequels, the second didn't live up to expectations, and by the time it and its predecessor drifted out of print in the mid-'90s, with the rights reverting to Harrison, nobody much noticed. A few years later, though, it soon became apparent that the Wilburys' records -- mainly, the debut, widely beloved thanks to its two hits, "Handle with Care" and "End of the Line" -- were out of print, and they soon became valuable items as the Harrison estate dragged its heels on a reissue. Finally, the two albums were bundled up as a two-CD set simply called The Traveling Wilburys and reissued with a DVD/digital download containing a documentary and all the videos in the summer of 2007. The whole shebang was reissued as The Traveling Wilburys Collection with the addition of two bonus tracks in the summer of 2016.

You have George Harrison of the Beatles, Tom Petty without the Heartbreakers, Jeff Lynne of ELO (Electric Light Orchestra), Bob Dylan, and Roy Orbison combining into one supergroup and you have the Traveling Wilburys. This is the deluxe edition which is a must have for the Traveling Wilburys fans including myself in this newly remastered collection set which has Vol. I and Vol. III and a DVD.

George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty get together and have a great time making music under their alias names and we cant help but have a great time listening. There is nothing to complain about with this box set of their two albums and the DVD that is added to them. Who would have thought that a group like this would make such a good party band? There is nothing too serious here, just a bunch of fun songs. Absolutely worth buying this box.

This pair of CDs is one of the best of classic rock & roll. If you bother with having a collection, this is a must-have. Can't say the "deluxe" adds much -- it's the music. The extras are OK.

Great group of artists. Much too short lived for my liking.

I give it a five star review.

I used a line from a Tom Petty song released on last years excellent "Highway Companion" notedly produced by Jeff Lynne to stress a key point about the Wilbury music. It only seems to get better with time. Don't read the review in Rolling Stone, the reviewer missed the charm and down home approach these guys took to record their music. Anyone who watches the DVD in this package will see five guys sitting around making up stuff on the fly and it rolls off the tongue naturally. Nothing is forced here on the first disc. The second disc suffers a little without Orbison's influence which grounded the music somewhat. That was the strength of this band, what each of them brought to the band. "Handle with Care", Dirty World", "Last Night", "End of the Line" and "Tweeter and the Monkey Man" all classic's on the first disc. With "Poor House", "Cool Dry Place", "Wilbury Twist" and Dylan's "If you belonged to Me" on the second disc.

Bob Dylan seems to have as much fun on these discs as on the Basement Tapes. His comeback CDs Love and Theft and Modern Times have somewhat the same sound as the Wilburys. Tweeter and the Monkey Man is one of his funniest songs ever. George Harrison never sounded as earthy was he does here. Tom Petty, who had the best 80s of these guys, seems more humorous than he does solo. Roy Orbison added a touch of class and Jeff Lynne brought production skills that tied it together. There are a few flaws. The bonus tracks are not really very good except for Nobody's Child. I suspect that the two audio CDs would have fit on a single disc without them.
