A huge part of our relationship is based on disagreement, it's what makes it fun!
Yeah, lastly we had been agreeing quite more than usual with that great Roy Wood album you posted and some other stuff so I was worried some big natural catastrophe would take place, but now everything's closer to normal so I feel safe again.
The best therapy for any problem you might have is playing music with friends.

Handle With Care – Classic! I love this song so much. It’s one of the loveliest things in the world to hear George start this song. I always used to love this coming on the radio – nothing cheers you up more, surely, than hearing the voices on this track.
Dirty World – It’s never been my favourite track but it is indicative of the Wilburys especially when you’ve seen George’s video showing how they wrote the song. In fact the highlight of that video for me is Roy’s “trembling Wilbury” moment.
Rattled – One of my favourites. It could very well be because it’s a Jeff song .
Last Night – Not my most favourite. I wouldn’t play this on it’s own – only as part of the album on which this works really well.
Not Alone Any More – Another favourite. A classic Roy tune that should have been a single for Roy – as good as anything on Mystery Girl. Lovely. It has the familiar, comforting Jeff-style backing vocals too.
Congratulations – Nothing against Bob but this isn’t my favourite. It still fits well in the album's context. A bit like the crust on a banoffee pie.
Heading For The Light – A big favourite and not just because my favourite Beatle is singing. I love how this chugs along nicely. What’s especially good about this is that it doesn’t sound like a George song, it sounds like a Wilbury song.
Margarita – I love this, the instrumental version is especially good which I think I have on a single somewhere.
Tweeter And The Monkey Man – Not my favourite but a classic definitely. Kind of brings Bruce Springsteen in as an honorary Wilbury. Bob’s masterpiece.
End Of The Line – Can’t get much more classic than this. I love that George, Tom and Jeff all get a chance to sing here, three voices so seamlessly together even though you can enjoy their differences too.
Maxine – I love this track, it’s the guitars that does it, and George and maybe the claps too.
Like A Ship – It's no 'Maxine' but it’s still excellent. Like 'Maxine' it shows the Wilburys as a great guitar band.
The problem with having two classic singles on this album is that I can never decide which is best - I like 'Handle With Care' best as a song and 'End of the Line' best as a video I think. The only problem I have with any Wilbury album is Bob. I love Bob but the albums seem to be very Bob-centric and therefore a bit nasally on the vocal front. This album is never boring and always fascinating - I can't believe all these great people came together! It's like a dream come true.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
