has been 10 years too long but at long last, the music of The
Traveling Wilburys is available again - and in remastered sound!
Wilburys Volume 1'
and 'Traveling Wilburys Volume 3'
feature 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. Released on 11 June worldwide
and 12 June in USA, both albums are now combined into 'The
Traveling Wilburys Collection'. Each beautiful package
will also feature rare and previously unreleased tracks
along with a bonus DVD that includes a 24-minute documentary
of unseen Wilbury footage originally filmed by George
Harrison's Handmade Films plus five promotional videos.
Traveling Wilburys Collection' is available in the following formats:
DELUXE EDITION -
Linen-bound Deluxe Edition features 2 CDs (Volumes 1 and
3) with bonus tracks, bonus DVD, and a 40-page collectible
book with photos, original liner notes, new liner notes
and a uniquely numbered certificate of authenticity.
Pre-order demand has far exceeded availability. Most
UK online retailers have already SOLD OUT and are refunding
pre-orders. A VERY LIMITED
number of deluxe copies have been distributed to retail
stores but were put on sale in advance of the official release
date. BE QUICK!
- Features 2 CDs (Volumes 1 and 3) with bonus tracks, bonus DVD
and a 16-page full-colour collectible booklet.
VINYL EDITION -
Coming in August and featuring 2 vinyl releases of Volumes 1 and
3 with an additional 12-inch featuring bonus tracks, a collectible
album-sized book, plus additional postcards/posters. Also exclusive
to this edition will be Jeff Lynne's extended remixes of 'Handle
With Care' and 'End Of The Line' that were cut for the original
CD and 12-inch vinyl singles.
· DIGITAL EDITION BUNDLE
- Features downloadable editions of both CDs (Volumes 1 and 3)
with bonus tracks, video content and an interactive booklet.
reviews published so far (see REVIEWS section) have been full
of praise for the reissue, especially the bonus DVD footage. What
all the reviewers (and even Rhino Records own publicity) have
missed is that not only has the music from 'Volume 1' and 'Volume
3' been remastered but much of it has been remixed from the original
multitrack tapes. 'The Devil's Been Busy'
sounds especially magnificent while 'Runaway'
is totally transformed from the version that originally
appeared on the flip of 'She's My Baby'
and features a new keyboard solo by Jeff Lynne.

thing about the Wilburys for me is-if we'd tried to plan
it, or if anybody had said, let's form this band and get
these people in it-it would never happen, it's impossible.
It happened completely, just by magic, just by circumstance.
Maybe there was a full moon that night or something like
that. It was quite a magical little thing really."
