Song of the day: Traveling Wilburys- Handle With Care

traveling wilburys handle with care

In 1988, George Harrison was recording some songs. One of these songs would be This Is Love, which needed a b-side. When Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne joined him for some jamming, the song was written quickly. The inspiration came from a box with the text handle with care on it. They went into the studio of Bob Dylan to record a basic song. The record compagny of George Harrison thought it to be too good as a b-side, and encouraged the group to record an album. Of that album, Handle With Care was the main single. The song became a number 45 hit in the US and a number 21 in the UK. Roy Orbison died shortly after the recording. Enjoy
