Wilbury Twist / New Blue Moon / Cool Dry Place CD Single


Initial UK Release Date 25 March 1991
Initial UK Catalogue Number Wilbury Records W 0018 CD
Weeks On UK Chart (to date) Failed to chart
Peak UK Chart Position


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.

The CD version was issued in the UK/Europe on the same day as the other formats under catalogue number W 0018 CD and, unlike the 7″ single release which only has the instrumental version of New Blue Moon on the B side, this CD release also includes Cool Dry Place from the Vol 3 album. Although there was no US release Warner Bros did release a one track promo CD under catalogue number PRO-CD-4642.

My UK/Europe copy is shown below. I also have two copies on 7″ vinyl, shown here, and 12″ vinyl, shown here.

Original 1991 UK/Europe Release

The pictures below are of my original 1991 CD single. Like all the other Traveling Wilburys CD singles before it the CD and inlay were made in Germany. The CD, case (usual storage marks) and insert are in excellent condition.

Estimated Value : £5 – £15
