C.A.T: Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1

The Traveling WIlburys – Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 (1988)
Who would of imagined that a friendly get together between a group of rock music legends would lead to one of the most memorable supergroups of it’s time? What began as a friendly session to record a b-side for a George Harrison single would only grow into the joyous album I speak of today. Composed of George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne, The Traveling Wilburys combined catchy melodies, with strong lyrics and tied it all together with an army of guitars to create a bright and upbeat album that’s just as much fun as ever.

Every Wilbury has their moment in the sun but it’s on songs like “End of the Line” and the classic “Handle With Care” that they share the mic and really shine. Paying tribute from everything from 50’s rockabilly “Rattled'” to reggae on “Last Night” it’s an album that never skips a beat nor wastes any opportunities. You’d just be greedy to ask for any more from these guys, I mean Bob Dylan and George Harrison singing alongside the legendary Roy Orbison? What more could you ask for?

The production is slick and polished not unlike other album’s produced by Jeff Lynne around the same period these including; George Harrison’s Cloud Nine, Tom Petty’s Full Moon Fever and Roy Orbison’s Mystery Girl. Here he’s aided by co-producer/unofficial Wilbury leader George Harrison to create a rock romp that’s rarely dated by it’s late 80s packaging.

It’s almost impossible to pick a favorite track but I’m quite partial to the Dylan-heavy numbers and Tom Petty tracks, as this was arguably his most prolific and creative period. Lynne and Harrison feel to be a bit more in the background most of the time but still have standout moments. Artistically it didn’t break any groud or musical barriers but it’s still an enjoyable chronicling of some of rock’s greatest songwriters coming together to have fun and do what they do best.

Favorite Tracks: “End of the Line”, “Handle With Care”, “Last Night”
