From what I've heard of late, George Harrison was the owner of the recordings. His estate is supposedly planning on re-issuing both sometime in the coming year.

I've got one on vinyl, volume 2 I think and I have volume 3 on tape. It would be great to have them all on DVD. They had some hits, but thier best stuff was never released as a single - 'cool dry place', 'inside out', 'new blue moon' and the great 'she's my baby'.
I loved the Wilbury Twist music video - that and 'Doctorin' The Tardis', the only two music videos worth watching on Video Hits at the time!

I read somewhere that they were going to release them with unreleased tracks as well which I hope is true.

Now if Jeff Lynne would get off his ass & finish remastering the ELO catalog.

You can blame that on Sony Music. They are starting up the remasters though, ELO II and another one that I can't remember.

I hope the news is true about a re-release. I have Vol. 3 and had Vol.1 until it was stolen, so I'd love to get it back without having to pay out the ass.

I remember them having some kind of import or bootleg CD that had some unreleased tracks including on that I *cough*downloaded*cough* called Maxine. I'd love to hear the rest of those tracks.

Does anyone else here think that Roy Orbison was a little out of place musically in the Wilburys? Don't get me wrong, I love him on his own, but I thought his style clashed with the rest of the guys.

Not from what I had read. Supposedly Epic was waiting on Lynne to deliver the masters with extras for the other albums which still have not been done. Granted this could be completely untrue or old news as I read this back when the remasters for Eldorado, Discovery, Time & Secret Messages were just released (way back in 2001 ).

Sorry to go off topic but why release 4 discs & just drop the rest of the catalog? I was really looking forward to a remastered Out Of The Blue, Balance Of Power and A New World Record more than anything!

I also think Lynne was irritated by the luke-warm reception he got for his very underrated 2001 ELO album Zoom. It didn't sell well, so he said fuck it. Fuck the tour, fuck the rest of the catalog, and just went on to other things. I would love to know how much music he has just sitting around waiting to be released that will never see the light of day.

Back on topic: As far as Roy Orbison goes, I thought he was fine. His vocals on Handle With Care were awesome. And you gotta love his growl on Rattled. I really doubt he did much more than show up, sing a few parts and maybe contribute some minor guitar. Lynne is/was a huge fan so I think they had him there just for his own pleasure more than anything.

If anything, I would have dumped Dylan. Never been a fan and I hate his voice. You already have Petty in there who sounds like a finer-tuned Dylan anyway. I know, blasphemy to some of you but as I said, I have never been a fan.

I would have liked to see what they would have done with Del Shannon taking Orbison's place for Vol. 3 (if he hadn't have blown his head off first).

I'll certainly be picking these up. Never was into them before, but heard a couple songs in the past years I've really liked.

And on Jeff Lynne, what I would love more than anything is a nice clean version of "I'm Gone", the b-side to "Every Little Thing". I love that song so much, but only have it on an old cassette tape of the single. Heck, I'd even rebuy "Armchair Theatre" if it was slapped on the end of it.

I'm sure one of the bonus tracks on a possible re-release will be the cover of Del Shannon's "Runaway", that was the b-side of the import CD single of "My Baby".

I've got still got the original of that, and the other two CD's.

Speaking of the Wilbury's, though - anyone heard the cover version of "Handle With Care" on the new Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley) album that came out yesterday yet? She does it as a trio with Conner Oberst (Bright Eyes) and Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie).

I have the vinyl but haven't played it in at least 15 years.

It will be nice to have the stuff on cd.

Yes, I have. It's not nearly as good as the original but I still like it. But then, I'm a Rilo Kiley fan.

I know this is a Traveling Wilburys thread but I just saw something that may interest the Jeff Lynne fans out there.

I had no idea but it appears that Jeff finally did get off his ass and ELO I and ELO II have been remastered an released back in March (never heard a thing about them).

The rest of the ELO remasters are supposedly coming this September. www.elomusic.com

This was a total surprise to me and thought others may not know about it as well.

Now...any news about the supposed remastering/re-releases of the Wilburys stuff?

I know I'm 8 months late here, but...

Just looking at how much the other four guys idolized Oribison, I really don't think he was out of place.

I really thought after Harrison's death this and a new "greatest hits" of his solo work (which is sorely needed) would be forthcoming faster.

I think the Wilburys could ride again with Sting and Chris Isaack replacing George Harrison and Roy Orbison.
