The prankingly titled Vol. 3, is the second album from The Traveling Wilburys that’s a bit heavier and denser than their first volume that showed that they still had a knack for recreating classic music they loved in their own image. They come out swinging immediately with the endearing rocker “She’s My Baby,” featuring ripping and creaking guitar from guest musician Gary Moore. “If You Belonged to Me” is like a Blood on the Tracks update in the same sonic space as “If You See Her, Say Hello” and final dance number “Wilbury Twist” is a pure goofy pleasure. There’s less lift and fewer hooks this second time around, but the draw is still present and the group’s bond remains strong after the passing of the late great Roy Orbison, proving to be yet another whimsical collaboration of solidly written songs from four legends in popular music.
