I already had the original two albums, but for a tenner I could not resist this 3-disc set with 4 bonus tracks and a decent amount of original music videos.

Everybody positively shines throughout; Dylan's hilarious Dirty World and Tweeter and The Monkey Man; Harrison's sublime Handle With Care, Heading For The Light and the fantastic Maxine (the latter originally left off!). Roy Orbison is spine tingling on the last song of his life, Not Alone Anymore. Tom Petty sings the catchy Last Night and offers a notable Orbison tribute in You Took My Breath Away, and Jeff Lynne brings these disparate elements together with his trademark slick production.

Volume One is the perfect 'feel-good' album. Even if you don't dance, you will certainly feel the urge to, and will soon know entire songs of by heart. Volume Three is slightly less upbeat and has a more rock and roll/rootsy feel, and Orbison is missed, but its still a damned good listen. On top of this, there is also a dvd containing all of the music videos (5 in total), plus a half hour documentary which gives some insight into the fun everbody was having.

For the money, it is an absolute gem of a buy and I would recommend it whole-heartedly.

If ever there was one, it's this album, available now at last for the first time in what seems like an age.

As a rule, "supergroups" tend to be rather sterile, ego-driven and self-indulgent affairs. This is the exception: two albums full of great tunes made by a group of friends who were clearly having a blast together. There are even some who might say that this is probably the most musically fulfilled George Harrison got to be after the Beatles, as good as some of his solo material was, because he simply enjoyed being in a band. I think they have a point.

Volume 1 is the best of the three discs, containing a slew of wonderful songs. My particular favourites are 'Rattled', a romping good 50's skiffly-rock n roll number, 'Heading for The Light', 'End Of The Line' and 'Not Alone Any More', which has a spine-tingling Roy Orbison lead. There isn't a clunker among them, without exception each song has something wonderful and warm to give. Evidence of this is provided by the first bonus track 'Maxine', which wasn't judged good enough to make the original album, which is a lovely rather flamenco-flavoured acoustic George Harrison number. In fact, the weakest song on this disc is the second bonus, 'Like A Ship', but even this is worth a listen.

After the perfection of Vol 1, the only way to go is down. While Vol 3 is not quite as stellar or immediate as its antecedant, it is still full of rollocking good tunes and still doesn't have any real dogs on it. How can you dislike an album that has a (somewhat tongue-in-cheek) rocking sitar solo! (The Devil's Been Busy), including a riff swiped wholesale from I Believe in Father Christmas by Greg Lake.

It's rare these days for me to have one CD that is played over and over again - let alone a double album but this compilation has achieved that feat - probably the first release ever to have done that for me.

I first hankered after the Wilburys whilst re-discovering George Harrison's solo work but found that the CD releases were commanding vast sums as collectors items. Thankfully this three disc (two audio, one DVD) set filled the void.

As I've already said it was the Harrison involvement that hooked me but the contributions of the other Wilburys are equally important. Essentially this album works because it was a bunch of guys having fun and the songs are simple (all quickly written and recorded) and memorable. Of course it's not that simple - when the bunch of guys comprises Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne then it's difficult to imagine it being anything but superb but it could so easily have gone wrong. Thankfully it didn't - just because they were all in it to have fun. The listener does too. Buy with confidence - you'll have no trouble selling it if you don't enjoy it but you won't need to.

The only copies I have of these two albums are on cassette tape so I haven't heard them for years. Just bought this today, put the first disc in the cd player and within minutes I could not keep still or concentrate on what I had been doing. My foot kept tapping, my fingers drummed on the table... Just stop whatever you are doing and listen to these albums - the sheer musicianship, songcrafting and playing is superb and the remastering really helps to separate the instruments so you can really tell the individual styles. There are not that many artists of this calibre that demand you stop and listen to them - the Wilburys most certainly are

I do wish it had been released as an SACD however as I am sure that would have been even better. However, I am delighted to hear 'George and the boys' again and sounding as good as ever. A well-deserved UK number one album - long may it remain so.

This is probably one of the most fun albums you'll ever own, period. The music is light and toe tapping and the lyrics are sung with tongue firmly in cheek. The blend of voices and styles are spot on and you'll find yourself beaming everytime you put on this CD. The DVD has some great footage of the albums being recorded, as well as some music videos. The extra tracks aren't too great, but are good for those who want more from the band. I can not recommend this album highly enough, I grew up on it and I love it just as much now. After years of being a deleted title I recommend you snap this up before it gets lost again!
