  1. It was so nice to see that after all his frustration with the music business and several years of hiatus, George staged a nice comeback with this album. And while “Cloud Nine” was his final solo album released during his lifetime, it did prompt him to start the Traveling Wilburys.

    • When Cloud 9 came out I remember being a little surprised- I thought that it was possible George would never release another album.. back then 5-6 years between albums was forever- today not so much.
