End Of The Line - Oolrait
The fun loving pop group Vilperin Perikunta (see earlier entry) recorded "Oolrait" (Alright) for their 1992 debut album "Gloria vilperum". This modern classic pop song was originally performed by Vilperin Perikunta's namesake Traveling Wilburys and written by the whole group (here's the official composer list: Dylan Robert - Harrison George - Lynne Jeff - Orbison Roy Kelton - Petty Thomas Earl). It features all the Wilburys, except Dylan, as lead singers; Harrison, Lynne and Orbison sing the chorus in turn, while Petty sings the verses. It was released as a single, eventually peaking only at number 63 in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.
