Welcome back to Wilbury Way, my fellow bootleggin’ fanatics, for our fond look back at Volume Three, A.K.A. the second Traveling Wilburys album.
Actually, if you want to know the truth, I’ve never been all that fond of this one. It isn’t just that Roy Orbison is missing — his vocals provided some serious lift to the otherwise quite nasal proceedings on Volume One. It’s also that, the first time, the band wasn’t even really a band; they were just a group of
legends respected musicians horsing around. Here, they frequently sound like they’re trying too hard. It’s a little depressing sometimes.
But shit, it’s still Dylan, Petty, Harrison, and Lynne.
Enjoy Volume Three, amigos, and meet me back here next week for some Boss Springsteen!
