INTRO






It has been 10 years too long but at long last, the music of The Traveling Wilburys is available again - and in remastered sound!

'Traveling 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.

 


The 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.

IMPORTANT! 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!




·
STANDARD EDITION - 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.


All 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.

"The 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." George Harrison
