This album is the first of two official platinum volumes to be released from this group (the second being released after Roy Orbisons death) and includes early Wilburys hits like 'Handle With Care' and 'End Of The Line'.
If you choose to buy it, don't hesitate. In 20 years time, when all of the members are dead, perhaps they will be remembered for their brief moment in history as the 'Travelling Wilburys'.
Well this eighties super group combine the musical tastes of all these guys from growling vocals of Dylan to the heart wrenching ballads of Orbison.
The best track has to be "Tweeter & the Monkey Man". The story of two thugs that sell drugs for cash then escape across the state border with the sister of the undercover cop whose chasing them. The song has everything.
Other classics include Roy's vocals on "You're Not Alone Anymore" and some natty George Harrison guitar licks throughout.
Track for track I'd say this is one of the best albums I ever bought.
The real question is why don't Amazon sell the other volumes?
