    After being out of print for more than a decade, the two studio albums from all-star band the Traveling Wilburys will return to the marketplace in a variety of formats June 12 via Wilbury Records/Rhino, Billboard.com has learned.

    \"Traveling Wilburys Volume 1\" and \"Traveling Wilburys Volume 3\" will be available together in one package with bonus tracks and a DVD of rare footage, as a deluxe linen-bound edition, a vinyl set and a digital bundle. The DVD boasts a 24-minute documentary and five music videos.

    The Wilburys formed in 1988 after Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne and Roy Orbison assembled at a California studio to record a B-side for the Harrison single \"This Is Love.\"

    The resulting song, \"Handle With Care,\" was instead released under the Wilburys name, with the artists posing as a band of brothers. It went on to reach No. 45 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the \"Volume 1\" album hit No. 3 on The Billboard 200. The reissued version of the album includes the previously unreleased tracks \"Maxine\" and \"Like a Ship.\"

    Orbison died in late 1988 before a second album could be completed; it was eventually released as \"Volume 3\" in 1990. The set is expanded here with the B-side \"Runaway\" and \"Nobody\'s Child,\" which was released on a benefit album for Romanian orphans.
