Double Feature: “Handle with Care” Covered By Two Different Music Supergroups


In 1988 Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne formed the Traveling Wilburys and released their debut album Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1. The first song off the album is “Handle with Care” and it became one their most popular songs in their short career (Orbison died right before a proper follow up could be recorded).


In 2006, Jenny Lewis recorded her own cover of “Handle with Care” for her album Rabbit Fur Coat with The Watson Twins, Conor Oberst, Ben Gibbard, and M. Ward. These are two very different music supergroups from different eras, yet each version is great.

2012 Countdown Part 2: Death Cab For Cutie – “The New Year”

Here’s another song to help bring in 2012.  Though it’s meant to be a joyous time, for many people New Years is more of a drag than a celebration.  Many people have to work, some have no one to bring in the new year with, and others, like Ben Gibbard, don’t feel any different in a new year.  I hope you can enjoy bringing in 2012, but if it’s not your holiday, you’re not alone.
