"Traveling Wilburys, Volume 3" by George Harrison – ****

First released: 1990

If you count the "Romanian Angel Appeal" album as Volume 2, which does contain The Traveling Wilburys version of "Nobody’s Child" (unavailable on "Volume 1" and "3"), then "Volume 3" makes more sense. Otherwise, it’s a perverse joke on the collector mentality. George really takes a backseat on this album and rarely sings lead. It’s not quite as strong of album, but tracks such as "Wilbury Twist" add a lot of humor. The boys take on new identities this time out and the effort is dedicated to Lefty Wilbury (Roy Orbison).
