Nearly twenty years after the creation of the band, and over a decade since the music was last available to fans, the music of The Traveling Wilburys was reissued in June worldwide as The Traveling Wilburys Collection. The reissue debuted at #1 in 5 countries globally, was at #9 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 charts, and was the #1 Digital Download in its first week of release. The release remains in the Top 5 on the UK charts after seven weeks. The collection has gone Platinum in 5 countries and Gold in two countries and is still maintaining strong chart positions around the globe. The Deluxe Edition package sold out within minutes of release and Rhino Entertainment announced today, that due to this overwhelming demand and fan requests, a Second Edition will be made available again on November 20, 2007.
The previously released albums Traveling Wilburys Volume 1 and Traveling Wilburys Volume 3 feature inarguably some of music’s greatest singer-songwriters – George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan – as the iconic band The Traveling Wilburys. Both CDs, combined into one release, The Traveling Wilburys Collection, feature bonus tracks of rare and newly mixed previously unreleased music along with a DVD featuring a 24-minute documentary showing unseen footage of the Wilburys and their five video clips.
The Traveling Wilburys collectible packages are available in four configurations. Each configuration is a remarkable commemoration of this unique group.

“The Wilbury Deluxe Edition sold out so quickly that it caught us by surprise. We heard from so many disappointed fans it seemed the only fair thing to do was to make a second edition,” said Olivia Harrison.
In trying to explain how the Wilburys originally came together, George Harrison once said, “The thing about the Wilburys for me is – if we’d tried to plan it, or if anybody had said, let’s form this band and get these people in it – it would never happen, it’s impossible. It happened completely, just by magic, just by circumstance. Maybe there was a full moon that night or something like that. It was quite a magical little thing really.”
