Wiburys Reborn

Great news via (via a good soul at the George forum). After being out of print for over ten years the Traveling Wilburys' two albums are being rereleased by Wilbury Records/Rhino. For those who don't know, the Traveling Wilburys was a "supergroup" made up of George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynn, who all assumed pseudonyms for the project as Wilbury brothers: Nelson, Lucky, Charlie T. Jr, Lefty and Otis Wilbury (and Spike, Boo, Muddy and Clayton Wilbury on their second album).

From what I know this is a project George Harrison was working on when he died in 2001 and which Olivia Harrison and Barbara Orbison had taken up in his stead. The story describes the rerelease:
"Traveling Wilburys Volume 1" and "Traveling Wilburys Volume 3" will be available together in one package with bonus tracks and a DVD of rare footage, as a deluxe linen-bound edition, a vinyl set and a digital bundle. The DVD boasts a 24-minute documentary and five music videos.
I'm very much looking forward to holding that in my greedy little hands!
