The Unravelling Wilburys

Just when they were about to make it to the big time, this band of good ol’ boys from Nashville, Tennessee had a whole bunch of songs (allegedly) stolen by Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne (ELO), George Harrison, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty, under the late 80s ‘supergroup’ pseudonym The Traveling Wilburys.  Things were so bad after that, the real Wilbury brothers (Walter, Sticky Willy, Thumper, Javelin and Fingers) resorted to dressing up as The Beatles, and spent over 20 years touring as Sgt Pepper’s Only Dart Board Band.  After a lengthy legal battle, a Hazzard County judge ruled the boys could git back their true identity and hit the highway with all their old songs including: Handle With Care, The End Of The Line, The Devil’s Been Busy, Not Alone Anymore and by way of compensation, solo choice cuts:  Pretty Woman, You’ve Got It, Mr Blue Sky, Telephone Line, Mr Tambourine Man, Make You Feel My Love, The Waiting, I Won’t Back Down, All Those Years Ago, Got My Mind Set On You and many others.


“Captured the style and sounds perfectly and with their own added sense of humour gave the audience an evening to remember”

Please note a couple of American slang words included above!
