This collection was originally released as a CD box set that came out on 11 June 2007 in the UK and one day later on 12 June 2007 in the US. It went on to spend seventeen weeks in the UK charts, going straight to number 1 in it’s first week, whilst in the US it managed to climb to number 9 during a thirteen week stay. This vinyl version was not released until 6 months later on 3 December 2007.

For this vinyl box set release both Traveling Wilbury albums have been remastered and pressed with their original track listing and a third disc has been added containing the bonus tracks listed below.

Handle With Care – Extended Version

Like A Ship – Unused track from the Vol 1 sessions

Maxine – Unused track from the Vol 1 sessions

End Of The Line – Extended Version

Nobody’s Child – Charity single from 1990 in aid of the Romanian Angel Appeal

Not Alone Any More – An exclusive remix for this vinyl version only

Runaway – Remix but previously only available on the B side of the 12″ single and CD versions of the She’s My Baby single.

Also included is a sixteen page LP sized booklet, a poster and 6 postcards in an envelope

George’s son, Dhani, adds some overdubs to two of the bonus tracks – a guitar solo and some backing vocals to Maxine and some backing vocals to Like A Ship. He is credited under the pseudonym Ayrton Wilbury which is a nod towards Ayrton Senna, the legendary Formula One Driver.

The pictures below are of my 2007 box set. Although it’s a UK release everything is US made – the records were actually pressed at Record Technology Incorporated in Camarillo, California on 180 Gram Vinyl. The inner sleeves for the two original LPs are reproduced as single sheets with the records being housed in emitex style inners. I have also saved the original sheet that was attached under the cellophane of the new release and the yellow sticker that was outside the cellophane. This sheet is the only part of the set that has a barcode, there isn’t one on the album sleeves, inner sheets or labels. Everything is in more than excellent condition both visually and playing wise.

Estimated Value : £50 – £80
