Bertie Higgins

Remembered for his lone Top Ten single, "Key Largo," a soft rock fantasy about living in a Humphrey Bogart film, Bertie Higgins was a professional musician who made the leap to solo performing in the early '80s. His 1982 debut, Just Another Day in Paradise, was actually a comeback of sorts -- it was the first musical venture he had undertaken since 1968, when he retired to his hometown of Tarpon Springs, FL, after the breakup of his group, the Roemans. Between 1964 and 1968, Higgins drummed with the Roemans, who recorded a series of singles for ABC-Paramount, which were all ignored. More importantly, the Roemans supported vocalist Tommy Roe on tour, which was how they sustained an income. Following the breakup of the group, he returned to Tarpon Springs and over the course of the '70s slowly built up a collection of songs that formed the basis of Just Another Day in Paradise. Released on the independent label Kat Family in 1982, the record became a hit as the single "Key Largo" climbed its way into the Top Ten. "Key Largo" was the only hit from the record, although the title track did reach the Top 50. For the next 12 years, Higgins was quiet, releasing Then and Now on Epic in 1994 to little attention. Collectables released a set of mostly re-recorded songs from Higgins' songbook in 2003 as Key Largo. That same year, Brazilia appeared from Key Largo Records. Six years later in 2009, Captiva, on Toucan Cove/Universal, was released. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Too wussy for me

Buffet wrote it in 1977, Bertie might have been in Florida but he didn't write it. He wrote it as he sat in the old anchor inn watching gridlocked roads. He had just finished a tour in Texas and drank lots of Margaritas.
DO NOT KNOW WHY ALL BIOS ABOUT BERTIE HIGGINS SAY HE ONLY HAD ONE HIT SONG.
HE WROTE "MARGARITTAV I L L E " NOT JIMMY BUFFET.
BUFFET RE-RECORDED IT.
HE WROTE "MONTEGO BAY "
BOB MARLEY RE-RECORDED THAT.
BERTIE WROTE "KOKOMO"
THAT WAS RE-RECORDED BY THE BEACH BOYS IN 1989.
ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE HAS BEEN RE-RECORDED BY PHIL COLLINS AND LATELY A COUNTRY STAR.
ALL THESE BERTIE ORIGINALS WERE HITS.
THERE WERE MANY MORE TAKEN FROM BERTIE AND MADE FAMOUS BY OTHER MUSICIANS.
BERTIE NEEDS MORE CREDIT THAN H

Bertie is a good guy. We had him play on St. Croix back in the 90's.

This song makes me want to play with my monkey until he throws up
Glad to know Bertie is playing again! One of the best voices around!

I'm surprised that Bertie Higgins didn't get more play time. He is a very talented musician and recording artist!

Mr. Right is right...Pira t e s and Poets was released in 1983 and for a college student who was a romantic at heart and spent spring break on the Florida islands, it was a great memory-burne r (Only Yesterday, Pirates and Poets, When You Fall in Love....)

I wrote several erotic stories based on the words to several of Bertie's songs. Had put them up on a website, making them free to anyone who wanted to read them.

Would love see him and Jimmy work a show.!
Love this recording.." K e y Largo"
Found the Just Another Day in Paradise Album while I was in Korea for the year. Played it over and over. Just loved it! His music is great and wish he had more out. Jimmy Buffett is as close I find but still not the same.
