The Wilburys Are #1 in the UK, Australia, et al.!!

Congrats to all my Wilbury cousins! Let Thy Wilbury Done!

From George

Nearly twenty years after the creation of the band and over a decade
since their music was last available, legendary supergroup The
Traveling Wilburys are at number one for the first time ever. Selling
over 110,000 units in its first week of release, The Traveling Wilburys
Collection, shot straight to the top of the UK album charts today.

On hearing the news, Olivia Harrison said "Here’s to George, Roy and
the Boys, my favourite guys. Congratulations Wilburys."

Also debuting at number 1 in the UK iTunes charts, The Traveling
Wilburys have taken the digital age by storm. The albums can be
downloaded for first time as part of the ‘digital bundle’ version of
The Traveling Wilburys Collection, which includes the video content and
a sixteen page interactive booklet with liner notes and photography of
Harrison, Dylan and friends. In addition, newcomers to this iconic rock
band can download a free introductory seven-minute video sampler via

As further testament to their enduring popularity, The Wilburys are
storming the charts across the world, with the Collection going in at
number 1 in countries including Australia and Ireland.
