@izzythepush,
they showd a chair with his picture and his guitar in the video. Ill find it.

Here it is. Right after Petty does hiis sewcond insert, the show Orbisons chair rocking qnd his picture while his verse was singing.
I think thats where Clapton or Lynne was inserted as a Willbury for concerts.

I am not so clear what constitutes a concept album.
Highway 61 Revisited is one of my top favorites.
Elvis is Back, showcasing his talent as he announces return to civilian life.

@farmerman,
I wouldn't put the Wilburys in anything other than a "what they did next" category. I don't think it was any of the member's finest work by any means.

When I think of Concept this is what springs to mind.
