This was the second single from the Traveling Wilburys Vol 3 album and was released in the UK on 25 March 1991 where it failed to chart. It was not released as a single in the US.

The original video for the song featured a host of guest stars including Eric Idle, John Candy, Cheech Marin, Woody Harrelson, Whoopi Goldberg, Milli Vanilli, Fred Savage (The Wonder Years), Ben Savage (Boy Meets World) and Kala Savage (8 Simple Rules) though the video released with the 2007 Traveling Wilbury Collection, apart from a brief glimpse of Eric Idle and John Candy,  just shows the band performing the song.

I have 2 copies on 7″ vinyl shown below. I also have it on 12″ vinyl, shown here, and CD single, shown here.

UK First Press

The pictures below are of my solid centre first press copy (there was only the one press and no push out centres) that has the matrix numbers W 0018 A and W 0018 B. It also has LYN 28389 etched into the A side run off and LYN 28390 etched into the B side run off. Visually the record has a couple of very small marks but plays through excellently, just the odd touch of very light crackle. The glossy picture sleeve is also in excellent condition, just some minor ringwear.

Estimated Value : £10 – £15

 

UK First Press Limited Edition

The pictures below are of my UK limited edition copy which comes in a cardboard outer sleeve and contains four postcards. The record itself is exactly the same as the copy above with the same numbers in the run outs. This release has the catalogue number W 0018 W though the enclosed record retains it’s original W 0018 catalogue number. Visually the record looks and plays just about perfect whilst the glossy picture sleeve, four postcards and outer sleeve are all in more than excellent condition.

Estimated Value : £20 – £25
