The year was 1988! A good buddy of mine said to me “come over to my house, I have an awesome album for you to listen to…..The Traveling Wilbury’s”! I had never heard of this group, but Jack has a great ear for good music so I went over to listen to the songs. That was the start of love love love.
The music was an experience that was like no other! They used fictitious nick names: Roy Orbison (Lefty), Tom Petty (Charlie T), George Harrison (Nelson), Bob Dylan (Lucky), Jeff Lynne (Otis) and Jeff Keltner (Buster Sidebury)…sitting in as the drummer, put together quite an album.
I had not listened to the record for at least 10 years. Last week I played it on Spotify and fell in love again. Fabulous music, fabulous players and great history.
When you have a moment, give a listen, you’ll fall in love with the album too. My favorite song on the album? Not Alone Any More.
Songs: Handle With Care, Dirty World, Rattled, Last Night, Not Alone Any More, Congratulations, Heading For The Light, Margarita, Tweeter and the Monkey Man, End Of The Line, Maxine, Like A Ship
