soundscapes in Pop/Rock, Reissue

traveling%20wilburys-collection.jpgHard to believe this has been out-of-print for over a decade. The casual coming together of George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne to record a 1988 B-side led to a debut of such easy beauty that it still moves the hardest of hearts. Volume 1 remains impossible to deny, full of great singles ("End of the Line", "Handle With Care") and Bob Dylan at his off-the-cuff best ("Tweeter and the Monkey Man"). While follow-up Volume 3 is a shadow of its predecessor, having both packaged together here alongside a documentary DVD is a solid package.
