This collection was released 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. The vinyl version was not released until 6 months later on 3 December 2007.
The CD set originally came in two versions, a standard edition and a deluxe edition, with each one containing 2 CDs and a DVD. The CDs are the remastered Vol 1 and Vol 3 albums with each one containing 2 bonus tracks – Vol 1 has Maxine and Like A Ship, both being unused tracks from the Vol 1 sessions, whilst Vol 3 has Nobody’s Child, the charity single from 1990, and a remixed version of Runaway that was previously only available on the B side of the 12″ single and CD versions of the She’s My Baby single. The DVD contains a 24 minute “True History Of The Traveling Wilburys” documentary plus the music videos for Handle With Care, End Of The Line, She’s My Baby, Inside Out and Wilbury Twist.
The standard edition set came in a four panel fold out digipak that also contained a sixteen page booklet whilst the deluxe set came in a linen slipcase box that contained the CDs and DVD in a three panel fold out digipak plus a forty page hardback book and an envelope containing 2 photos of the band, 2 postcards, a sticker and a numbered certificate. The book in the deluxe edition is in two parts, “The History Of The Traveling Wilburys”, and “The True History Of The Traveling Wilburys”, with each part starting at one of the covers and ending in the middle but printed upside down in relation to the other.
On 20 November 2007 a second edition of the deluxe box set was released but this time is was in a blue hesian slipcase box as opposed to the first edition’s cream colour.
On 3 June 2016 both the standard version and the deluxe version were re released in the UK/Europe and the US, along with the 3 vinyl LP box set, on Wilbury/Concord Bicycle records. Both versions were the same as the original 2007 releases, the deluxe version coming in the cream slipcase.
