"Traveling Wilburys, Volume 1" by George Harrison – ****

First released: 1988

After George Harrison recruited Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty and Roy Orbison to cut a b-side, they decided that the results were so good that they should cut an album instead. All involved took on characters names such as Nelson and Otis Wilbury and created this alter-ego band with a legendary background. They even created their own label Wilbury Records (even though it was still Warner Bros.) The resulting album is a very fun album that begged for a sequel which was "Volume 3"?!?
