Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3 is the 1990 follow-up album by the supergroup Traveling Wilburys to their 1988 debut Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1.

History[edit]

Though it was their second release, the album was mischievously titled Vol. 3 by George Harrison. According to Jeff Lynne, "That was George's idea. He said, 'Let's confuse the buggers.'" [5]

As the dynamics within the band had shifted with Orbison's passing, the four remaining members all adopted new Wilbury pseudonyms: Spike (George Harrison), Clayton (Jeff Lynne), Muddy (Tom Petty) and Boo (Bob Dylan). With Harrison and Lynne producing again, the sessions were undertaken in the spring of 1990, with an additional track, a cover of "Nobody's Child" being set aside for a charity compilation album.

Released in October, Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3 was less positively received than its predecessor, yet still saw a fair measure of success, with both "She's My Baby" (with Gary Moore) (#2 album rock) and "Inside Out" (#16 album rock) becoming radio hits as the album reached #14 in the UK and #11 in the US where it went platinum.

Although there has since been speculation about further Wilbury releases, Harrison's 2001 death is considered to have ended any possible future projects with Harrison having been the unofficial leader of the group and with his estate owning the rights to both albums.

Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3 was dedicated in memory of "Lefty Wilbury" (Roy Orbison).

After George Harrison’s distribution deal with Warner Bros. expired in 1995, ownership of the Dark Horse Records catalog as well as the two Traveling Wilburys albums reverted to Harrison and the albums went out of print.[6] On June 12, 2007, Volume One and Vol. 3 were re-issued by Rhino Records as The Traveling Wilburys Collection, packaged together with bonus tracks and a DVD. The box set debuted at #1 on the UK Albums Chart and at #9 on The Billboard 200.
