George Harrison - This is Love



On  the 2nd of May 1988 The "This is Love" single, with "Breath Away From Heaven" as the B-side, was released in the USA.
George’s 'Cloud Nine' was co-produced with Jeff Lynne and came out in 1987 to much acclaim. The album was on the top ten album charts in the US and UK, and George’s cover of Rudy Clark's "Got My Mind Set on You" became his first US #1 single in fifteen years. More singles were released – “Devil’s Radio”, “When We Was Fab", and "Cloud 9".

When it was time to release the final single, “This is Love”, George had an idea for the extra B-side. Gathering together Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty, they wrote, recorded, and co-sang “Handle with Care”.

The song was saved from B-side status and the five troubadours took on brotherly pseudonyms to become the Traveling Wilburys, resulting in two albums of new songs over the next two years.
