Classic Track of Day – Traveling Wilburys

There’s something curious about the late 80’s Chili’s Menu cover.  But I digress.  Lots of Jeff Lynne haters were abundant back then- suggesting that his production stamp was all over this thing- sapping it’s soul from the gate.  Google some original reviews for the skinny.   However it’s 2008 now – and 20 years later- this collection of songs indeed stand the test of time- It rolled out before  No Depression unconsciously branded the  “Alt. Country” movement- which spawned all sorts of  label Cosmic American Music marketing plans, executive titles, radio charts, and formats: when in doubt- alt. country out.    Either way this is not an Op-Ed post- it’s just a reminder of a great song that I miss hearing on the radio. 20 years later- it sounds as good as new.  That’s true soul.
