The Traveling Wilburys
I know I have the first one, and maybe the second in my cd collection somewhere but they are MIA at the moment so after I dropped my daughter off at work I went into BestBuy to get them. All they had was a 3 cd collection so I picked it up. I don't have the third cd, recorded after Orbison died, and it had previously unreleased songs so the repeat cds seemed a good deal.
The songs still stand up over time. (First cd released in 1988-ish) There is a lot of humor in the songs and great melodies. I have never been a fan of Dylan's voice but he is a brilliant poet. As part of The Wilburys I enjoy him. I never knew much of Harrison either but as a group they were great together. All sing lead and back up so the variety is enjoyable. And Roy Orbison deserves a special mention, his voice is distinct and marvelous.
If you haven't, take a listen, you won't be disappointed and let me know.
