I think they sang the songs they wrote, so your line-up sounds about right...

Damn it, Dylan's Wilbury songs are SO good. His best material from the era, I'd say. Better than Oh Mercy, definitely (in my opinion).

So interesting, if you look at publishing, it is Harrison's publisher (Umlaut) attached to "End of the Line" so that one's a George song, and Lynne's publisher, Shard End Music, is attached to " Not Alone Anymore" so that one is Lynne's (albeit probably written for Roy Orbison). By the way, it doesn't look like Orbison brought any original material to the sessions.

Interestingly, "Congratulations" was also recorded during the Oh Mercy sessions, despite the song already being released on the Wilbury's album.

@ sweetdudejim How do you know "Congratulations" was recorded at the "Oh Mercy" sessions? Never heard about that.

For Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3 Dylan/Harrison/Petty/Lynne share the publishing, but the lead vocalist(s) on the original demos can be assumed to be the main writer(s) of the song:

1. She's My Baby - demo was sung by Dylan
2. Inside Out - demo was sung by Dylan (additional lead vocals by Petty/Harrison)
3. If You Belonged To Me - demo was sung by Dylan

Sorry friend. I'm really not an Oh Mercy fan, other than a few songs. The lyrics don't strike me as profound or insightful. In fact they seem heavy-handed and obvious.

In the Wilbury doc, George or Tom liked the "when the walls come down" line and decided to use it as a chorus. So while it's Tweeter is 99% Dylan, there is a tiny bit of co-write there. It's a good bit too.

I always believed that the songs were written more or less together. Every guy brought in a first draft, or a demo or a melody for a song and then everybody skipped in suggestions, exchanging lines here and there til the song was finished.

Jeff Lynne said in an interview (Uncut April 2016) that Bob and he recorded a demo version of "I'm in the mood for love" more or less at the same time they recorded all the Wilbury stuff. There are a few live performances of this cover around 88 and 89.

Quote:
Bob Dylan and I did a demo once of him singing I’m In The Mood For Love in his garage. There was a little 24-track in the corner. We did Handle With Care there, too.


This demo it has never been bootleged (right?), perhaps an example of Bob crooning in Wilbury style!!! :mrgreen:

There is another Wilbury song in the vaults that it has never been bootleged, "Winged Victory" by Lefty Wilbury.

Quote:
Winged Victory [Unreleased Demo Recording]
"Roy offered to those wanting to know who wrote the songs on Vol. 1 [sic] was his statement that the lead singer on each cut wrote that particular song. While Bob Dylan had four songs, Roy had only one, because his solo, Winged Victory, based upon William Blake's The Sick Rose, was thrown out"
Ellis Amburn (1990 Dark Star: The Roy Orbison Story)

Interesting. More respect to Jeff Lynne for writing 'Not Alone Anymore' and for giving it to Roy to sing. Great decision.

I always assumed Petty had a lot to do with 'End of the Line' but I can see it being Harrison too.

The only Dylan dud IMO is 'Shes My Baby' but it might be the overdriven guitars and production. It sounds the most "un-Dylan like" to me as well.

Dylan completely carried the 2nd album and wrote probably the best song on the 1st (Tweeter), although you could make an argument for lots of songs on the 1st (Handle with Care, End of the Line, Not Alone Anymore to name a few). Dirty World and Congratulations are no slouches either.

Anyone know who wrote, Nobody's Child, I love that song.
Sounds like a Bob song.

Another question thats been gnawing at me is does Harrison sing "Ive been x up and Ive been fooled" or "Ive been FOGGED up in Ive been fooled" during Handle with Care? Or perhaps he overdubbed the first with the second due to obscenity?

The sides I checked quote the lyrics as " I've been fobbed off and I've been fooled" but to me what George sings sounds like the similar sounding obscenity.

Speaking of George, the Beatles covered Nobody's Child in one of their first recording sessions in Hamburg in 1961.

Do you know the demo? Much better than the offical version, because the lead vocal is all Bob and it does not have the instrumental overdubs.

That would depend on a lot of things wouldn't it? What the song was, who it was by, did it sound good or bad to your ears, etc etc.
