The first single to be taken from Traveling Wilburys Vol 3, She’s My Baby was released on 5 November 1990 in the UK where it spent just one week in the charts at number 79. It was not released as a single in the US.

Lead vocals for this track are shared by all four members whilst Gary Moore (Ken Wilbury) makes an appearance playing lead guitar. The B side is an instrumental version of the album track of the same name.

Unlike the 7″ single, which only has New Blue Moon on the B side, this 12″ version also has Runaway on the B side which, at the time, was exclusive to this 12″ release and the CD version of this single. It would later appear as a bonus track on the Traveling Wilburys Collection release in 2007.

My UK copy is shown below. I also have it on 7″ vinyl, shown here, and CD single, shown here.

UK 12″ Release

The pictures below are of my UK first press copy (there was only the one press) that has the matrix numbers W 9523(T) A-1 and W 9523(T) B-1. It also has MT etched into the run out of both sides. Visually the record has a few very light marks but it plays really well, just some occasional light crackle. The glossy picture sleeve is in excellent condition, just a touch of ringwear.

Estimated Value : £10 – £15
