Ahoy Wilburys & Lehrer Lovers



THE RETURN OF THE TRAVELING WILBURYS

Nelson, Otis, Lefty, Charlie T. Jnr., and Lucky Wilbury --
aka George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, and Bob Dylan --
are headed back to record stores.

The three-disc The Traveling Wilburys Collection features remastered versions of both of the unlikely supergroup's acclaimed albums, supplemented with rare bonus tracks, plus a DVD of the band's videos, and a 24-minute documentary including unseen footage of the Wilburys.

Available in both standard and deluxe editions, The Traveling Wilburys Collection goes on sale in June, but because it's just too good to wait for, Rhino will "let you" pre-order it now. (quotation marks by eppylover)

Another Rhino blurb:
Nearly twenty years after the creation of the band, and over a decade since the music was last available to fans, the music of The Traveling Wilburys will be reissued on June 12, 2007.

The previously released albums, Traveling Wilburys Volume 1 and Traveling Wilburys Volume 3 feature inarguably some of music's greatest singer-songwriters -- George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan -- as the iconic band The Traveling Wilburys.

Both CDs are combined on this 2-CD/1-DVD release and will feature bonus tracks of rare and newly mixed unreleased music. The all-region DVD contains historic footage documenting the first chord to the final mix, and their five video clips. Digipack also includes a 16-page booklet.
