Traveling Wilburys

 

R-2356837-1279210186.jpeg

 

Though most of its members got their start in the 1960s, the Traveling Wilburys is the kind of supergroup that could only have been formed in the late-'80s, a time when baby-boomer nostalgia was rampant, and when major labels were still interested in giving deals to musicians in their forties and fifties.

In 1988, George Harrison — experiencing a solo-career boost thanks to his Jeff Lynne-produced Cloud Nine album — recorded a B-side with Lynne, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Roy Orbison. When Warner Bros. heard "Handle With Care," they decided the tossed-off number, a bittersweet lament bolstered by Orbison's high voice, was decidedly A-side material, and encouraged Harrison and Co. to come up with an albums' worth of material. Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 (Number Three, 1988) was the resulting collaboration, and one of the stranger albums to reach the Top 10 that year, with Orbison taking lead vocals on the ballad "Not Alone Any More" and Dylan grumbling through "Tweeter and The Monkey Man," a hard-luck crime narrative that many critics suspected was a gentle dig at Bruce Springsteen's songwriting style.

 

Two months after the album's release, Orbison died at the age at 52, forever voiding the idea of a Wilburys tour. Petty continued working with Lynne, recording 1989's Full Moon Fever, and the surviving Wilburys reconvened for the far less satisfying Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3,/I> (Number 11, 1990), which lacked Orbison's vocal subtlety and piled on producer Lynne's trademark high-production polish. Harrison retained the rights to the albums, which went out of print in the 1990s, and could be found only through bootleggers or file-sharing sites; in 2005, four years after Harrison's death, a version of "Handle" recorded by Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst, Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard, and Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis appeared on Lewis' Rabbit Fur Coat album, indicating that Wilbury nostalgia was thriving among the indie-rockosphere. Rhino Records reissued both albums, plus a selection of B-sides, as The Traveling Wilburys Collection (Number Nine) in 2007.

Big Foot - Diana Krall

 

Not a vocal to be seen (heard) but it's a great jazz piece.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 

45rpm vinyl. A truly superb pressing. Absolutely no hint of surface noise – not that I've ever really heard any on more than one or two records thus far – and the number of pops I heard over all four sides combined could probably be counted with my fingers. On sides A and C I heard absolutely no artifacts, on B there were some, and I think there were a couple near the start of side D. If someone had blindfolded me, muted my preamp for the needle drop and let me listen to side A in its entirety, I wouldn't have been able to differentiate the vinyl from a digital version.

 

Not that I mind occasional pops on vinyl.

Both great releases, though AMOK lacked a bit of emotion for my tastes. The percussion seemed just a bit too robotic.

I'm liking Terez Montcalm's Voodoo album right now. Goes down nicely with a Midleton Very Rare three ice!

I'm really enjoying this Glen Hansard's album. It lacks behind The Swell Season, which was a lot more emotional for me but I'm a bit biased coz I watched the movie way before Glen and Marketa received the Academy Award. The recording and the mastering is great though - it's all about his voice and what he has to say. I got the HDtracks version and to me surprise it turned out to be one of the rare times where the release is actually great and the higher price over the CD is justified unlike the Civil Wars' new album.
