I hauled my copy of 'The Travelling Wilbury Collection' down off the shelf the other day, more through obligation than want. It'd been sitting there unheard & unwatched ever since I got it 18 months or so ago. That's the trouble with our obsession, it makes us buy stuff we know we won't like, but as it's there, well we just have to have it.
The Wilbury's were exciting when they first appeared, but like say Britney's Hit me, the initial rush soon turns to boredom. OK, Bob & Co maybe had a good time making the records, but they're too insubstantial to have stood the test of time.
What have we got here ? Couple of EPK's, some videos, and a few interviews. Bob's not deigned to be questioned alongside the rest so there's zero interest there, not that the others have anything worthwhile to say.
The Videos, you'll have them all anyway, and in much better quality.
The EPK's, snippets of videos, voice-overs etc, nothing of any importance.
Qualitywise not great, fuzzy and a long way from any masters.
If this had appeared 15 years ago, I might have got excited, but it's coming on 2009 now, whatever need there might have been for a Wilbury record has long past, Bob's had his fun, and he's got back to making real records.
Get it if you have to, but it'll only be to fill a gap on your shelves, another tick on your trade-list, but as for enjoyment - forget it.
[The TW Collection ? it's back on the shelf, I played the bonus's on disc 1, but as to watching the Wilbury Twist video yet again, just couldn't face it ]
