Moments In Time

The reason the sequel to the first Traveling Wilburys wasn't as good is that sequels are rarely as good. Just like movies, albums with all-stars casts fail to recapture the glory. Listening to Vol. 3 (as it was called) again, I come away thinking it's a Dylan album produced by Jeff Lynee with guest appearance by Tom Petty. George Harrison is rarely heard. Eric Clapton tried and aborted a Derek & The Dominoes followup. And in Country music, Parton/Harris/Ronstadt who were billed as Trio, made an inferior followup. Try and turn back the clock? Sometimes there's no recapturing that initial moment.
