The Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 is the debut studio album by the English-American supergroup Traveling Wilburys, comprising George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty. It was released in October 1988 to commercial success and critical acclaim. Although Harrison had long planned to start such a band, the project came about through happenstance. Harrison was in Los Angeles and in need of a B-side for a single from his album Cloud Nine, which resulted in the participants collaborating informally on the song "Handle with Care" at Dylan's home.

Adopting alter egos as the five Wilbury brothers, they then recorded a full album, produced by Lynne and Harrison (under the pseudonyms Otis and Nelson Wilbury respectively). It was the only Wilburys album to feature Roy Orbison and the final album featuring Orbison to be released during his lifetime - he died suddenly of a heart attack less than two months after its release. The group continued as a four-piece after his death.

The Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 was nominated for the Album of the Year award at the 1989 Grammy Awards (which was won by George Michael's Faith) and helped revitalise the careers of Dylan and Petty. It has been certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
