I've noticed that back in October 2009, the official Traveling Wilburys YouTube profile posted their music videos on YouTube finally.  I also came across three very short sepia videos that proclaims "The Wilburys are coming June 12th".  Does anyone have any further information on this?

My guess is that it's a fictional film about the Wilburys.  If so, there goes my plan to make a film about them...  However, a Wilburys film should be cool.a-hard-days-night-john-5

That's all new to me. Are these short films still on YouTube?

Not sure about that, but I know this is coming: http://www.genesis-publication.....-wilburys/ (or it may have been published already - I can't find a release date)

Yep, they're still there. It's the "official" Wilburys YouTube profile so I'm assuming it's real.  Everyone commenting seems to be confused as well.  I guess they're trying to build up hype and suspense until closer to the date.
 

I found that book trying to find out what the shorts were about.  Perhaps the book is what is being advertised.  The "Deluxe Edition" books have already sold out. There didn't seem to be much difference other than the packaging and 1 photo.

Okay, I just bought Volume 1 from 1988. I would have bought it earlier, but I heard a bad review from my mom, who has one of the best music tastes I know. But I love it. Handle With Care I had heard before, but the rest is great (so far - I'm only on Heading For The Light.)

I really like Volume 1, I think 2 is not so great but New Blue Moon is a fantastic song. I like Dylan's songs a lot on 1, like Margarita, even though it has such a lame intro.

I picked this up from Amamzon not too long ago.

It's got everything on it (that I know of) and has a DVD, booklet, cool packaging. You can get it on Amazon for about $25 - a dollar per song - plus shipping.

I like every song on it.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

Yes, that the only way to buy the Wilburies on CD. I actually bought a US first pressing on vinyl for $20.

I searched, but couldn't find an existing thread. (If there already is a thread for this, apologies.)

This is a pretty good group for what seems to be just a laff. (Not that they didn't take it seriously.)
I've only heard a few of their songs. (The main ones). but I'm getting to the rest.

Harrison, Dylan, Petty, Lynne and The Big O (the lineup doesn't get better than that! ahdn_george_08)  My favourite songs of theirs are Handle With Care, Last Night,  End Of The Line, Not Alone Anymore and Margarita. I haven't really heard much from the second album though.

Nah, Tom is a legend and I don't think George would take any offense. While I do love George dearly and with all my heart, Tom had a lot of shining moments with the Wilburys and I adore him and love his singing in Wilburys songs ugh so great 

I love looking at pics of them together and seeing Tom's lovely blonde head stick out against all their dark 'do's

By the way, lovelyrita, do you prefer Volume 1 or 3? And do you have a favourite Wilburys song? I'm curious, and inquiring minds need to know. ahdn_george_01

Okay, I'm trying to see what y'all see in Mr Petty and I think I have it. It's not so much his features (apart from his standout hair), because Jeff looks like an adorable poodle and George is the most criminally smexy boi over 45 I ever saw before I ran into David Bowie, so he's got competition there, but it's his body language. He carries himself like he's sexy and he knows it. The others, including my man George, are standing about being varying degrees of cool, shy, and reserved (I.e. shy and cool), but Tom is just out there with a cocky half smile exuding "Look At Me ". Let me know if I'm wrong?

The Wilbury's first album is a <3 in my book. I know in reality it isn't as worthy as I think it is but I include it in my top 100. Handle e with Care and especially Headed for the Light are George's best songs of the 80's. In a smaller time frame (between Infidels and Oh Mercy!) Congratulations, Dirty World and Tweeter and the Monkey Man are Dylan's. Tom didn't contribute anything that was as good as the best on his two surrounding albums. 

To answer the Bug's question. Ya, he's cocky but that would have got the shit beat out of him in my neighborhood. Not because he was a hippy and we were shit kickers, but because probably the wrong words would have came out of his mouth because he was so cocky. I feel the same way about John Mellencamp. As artists though both were excellent. I enjoy most of what I have by both.

This is pretty much still my opinion on them and favourite songs of theirs. Maybe since I've become a bigger Bob fan recently, now would be a good time to go listen to both albums in full and report back soon. ahdn_george_08

That's a tough question but I'd have to say that I prefer Vol. 1. I love Vol.3, but Vol. 1 has "Handle With Care" and "End of the Line" heart 

My absolute favorites are "Cool Dry Place" and "End of the Line" as well as "Runaway" and "Maxine" but I absolutely love the majority of them so it's hard to pick other favorites without just listing every single song lol. I love the Dylan songs a lot too because I love hearing Dylan's raspy, twangy singing a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Nope, you're not wrong at all, Bebu. Traditionally speaking, Tom isn't that cute when you just glance at him, but his confidence and overall manner about him is very very attractive. It's the same sexy cool cocky confidence that you see in a lot of the pictures of the young (savage) Beatles (especially the ones of George ugh that cocky grin with those little fangs peeking out with that hair wowza)

^Yeah, maybe it has something to do with the age difference as well. Apart from Jeff, who's just a shy poodle boi anyway, they're all of an older generation than Tom, and so theoretically they're mature and wise, or at least they come across that way, compared to where they would've been (i.e. cocky savage land) 20 years previously.

Yay, Cool Dry Place! That's probably my favourite track from the second album; I'm happy to see it get some love. heart Though, it is a little confusing at times: if you bought a building, why would you have a landlord? And what purpose did Tom joining the group Jeff was in during the late '60s serve?? Is this song even supposed to make sense???a-hard-days-night-paul-10

As for the first album and in a little more general sense, I'd maybe have to pick Dirty World and Margarita (hmm, and maybe throw in Last Night too).

Also, their version of Runaway is fabulous; I like it better than the original. Jeff was a great choice for singing lead on that one!

 

Hmm, and as for what makes Tom so attractive (intriguing thing to think about, Bebu, thankspaul-mccartney-thumb_gif), I'll have to get back to you on that tomorrow, maybe, so that I have some time to really think about it. ahdn_george_01
