Traveling Wilburys

The birth of The Traveling Wilburys came about in April 1988 when George, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty and Roy Orbison wrote and recorded Handle With Care at Bob Dylan’s home studio over a period of just five hours with the intention of it being the B side to George’s next single This Is Love. George’s record company, Warner Bros, deemed the track too good to be tucked away on a B side so, as all five had enjoyed the experience so much, they decided to record a full album using Handle With Care as the lead single and opening track for the album.

The name came about during the making of George’s Cloud Nine album when, if any small errors were made, they were refered to as Wilburys as George or Jeff would agree that “we’ll bury them in the mix”. Initially George suggested the band be called the Trembling Wilburys but later Jeff came up with Traveling Wilburys which all the band agreed upon.
