The Most Super Of Supergroups,
This review is from: The Traveling Wilburys Collection [2 CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
Just list the names George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty and the greatest voice in rock n roll Roy Orbison. There really is not much else to say. I bought the first album when it first came out and thought it was good. Now with the passing of the years and two fifths of the band now sadly gone I now believe that the album is just a gift. Put it in the CD player lock everyone else out of the room and immerse yourself in it. I just get a sense that they all had a load of fun making it. Just five friends away from the pressures of the industry, with no pressure to record a great album because it was totally spontaneous and unplanned. The five voices compliment each other so well, there isn't any part you would replace, it is totally perfect with Roy Orbison ever present appearing to float in and out of the songs. If you want to hear a great example of the Big O's beautiful voice just listen to NOT ALONE ANYMORE. When his voice appears on the songs it just brings a smile to my face. Thank God somebody decided to re-release this package with both albums and the DVD which is short but superb. I believe this album will appeal to all, not just us that bought the album first time around but kids new to the music. Everybody should own this for the pure joy of listening to five stars on one album having fun. Just click the "add to basket" button, don't think about it just do it you won't regret it.
