Handle With Care, with Margarita on the B side, was the Traveling Wilburys first, and most succesful, single when it was released on 17 October 1988. This release, limited to just 2500 copies and with an extended version of Handle With Care on the B side, was released in the UK in June 2007 to help promote The Traveling Wilburys Collection released at the same time. It managed to spend a couple of weeks in the charts at numbers 80 and 81 in June 2007. It was not released in the US.
The pictures below are of my solid centre copy (there was only the one press and no push out centres) that has NAWEED 8122799798 A-1 081227997984 – RHI7 198908 -A- etched into the run out on the A side and 081227997984 – RHI7 – 198908 -B- 8122799798 B-1 etched into the run out on the B side. NAWEED may, or may not, refer to Naweed Ahmed who was a mastering engineer at Whitfield Mastering in London. The record is in very good to excellent condition, just the odd touch of light crackle and a couple of clicks on the B side. The die cut paper picture sleeve is in very good to excellent condition, just some minor ringwear and a little wear around the opening.
