Jimmy Buffett

Jimmy Buffett translated his easygoing Gulf Coast persona into more than just a successful recording career -- he expanded into clothing, nightclubs, and literature -- but the basis of the business empire that kept him on the Fortune magazine list of highest-earning entertainers was his music. Born in southern Mississippi and raised in Alabama, Buffett moved to Nashville to try to make it in country music in the late '60s. After signing to the Barnaby label, he released one album, 1970's Down to Earth, from which the socially conscious single "The Christian?" suggested he might be more at home protesting in Greenwich Village. (Barnaby "lost" his second album, High Cumberland Jubilee, though they would find it and release it after he became successful.) Instead, the songwriter moved to Key West, FL, where he gradually evolved into the beach-bum character and developed the tropical folk-rock style that would endear him to millions.

Signing to ABC-Dunhill Record (later absorbed by MCA), Buffett achieved notoriety but not much else with his second (released) album, White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean (1973), which featured a song called "Why Don't We Get Drunk" ("...and screw?" goes the chorus). Buffett revealed a more thoughtful side on Living and Dying in 3/4 Time (1974), with its song of marital separation "Come Monday," his first singles-chart entry. But it took the Top Ten song "Margaritaville" and the album in which it was featured, 1977's Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, to capture Buffett's tropical world view and, for a while, turn him into a pop star.

By the start of the '80s, Buffett's yearly albums had stopped going gold, and he briefly tried the country market again. But by the middle of the decade, it was his yearly summer tours that were filling his bank account, as a steadily growing core of Sun Belt fans he dubbed "Parrotheads" made his concerts into Mardi Gras-like affairs. Buffett launched his Margaritaville line of clothes and opened the first of his Margaritaville clubs in Key West. He also turned to fiction writing, landing on the book bestseller lists.

His recording career, meanwhile, languished, though a hits compilation sold millions; a 1990 live album, Feeding Frenzy, went gold; and a 1992 box-set retrospective, Boats, Beaches, Bars, and Ballads, became one of the best-selling box sets ever. Buffett finally got around to making a new album in 1994, when Fruitcakes became one of his fastest-selling records. It was followed in 1995 by Barometer Soup and Banana Wind in 1996. The following year, Buffett began working on a musical adaptation of Herman Wouk's novel Don't Stop the Carnival with the author himself. After Broadway producers expressed little interest, the production ran for six weeks in Miami during 1997. In spring of 1998, Buffett released a collection of songs from the production as he began mulling over the idea of taking the play on the road. In 1999 he released Beach House on the Moon as well as Live: Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday.

During the first few years of the millennium, Buffett's newly launched Mailboat label issued close to a dozen concert recordings, as well as the 2002 studio album Far Side of the World. Two years later, Buffett allowed RCA to distribute his second Mailboat studio album, License to Chill. Live albums recorded in Hawaii and Boston appeared in 2005, followed by an all-new collection of songs called Take the Weather with You in 2006 and two more live sets, Live in Anguilla in 2007 and Feeding Frenzy: Live in 2008. In 2009, Buffett released Buffet Hotel, his first new studio album in years. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

I agree...One Particular Harbour is his best original album... Title song...Stars on the Water, etc... and Pandora doesn't list it...wow...
Christi likes to sing
Where is 1983's One Particular Harbour album in the Selected Discography? It was one of JB's best albums of the 80's.
If you have never seen jb in concert you need to ASAP ! Tailgating and concert is something I look forward to all year.. Fun people, tasty drinks and awesome music
Nothing in the world like the atmosphere of a JB tailgate. It should be on everones bucket list. Cant wait till i fire up the RV covered in FINS and COCONUTS and bring my Drink-O game and M'Ville blenders! FINS UP!!!
Have been a fan since 76 when I saw him in Seattle, and never left. I use his words in songs many times in describing something and always stating reminds me of a Jimmy buffet song. I have my favorites because they remind me of people in my past and I use his music to keep me happy and up all the time. I feel some of the words he sings, he most likely has done and the adventure in his songs is wha I dream about - Thank you Jimmy for all you have instilled in me and please never quit.
Since the BiCentennial Concert at the Superdome, (Jimmy Buffett & the Coral Reefers, Charlie Daniels Band, Emmy Lou Harris, and John Sebastian, I think I am missing one!) - I have loved JB. I introduced him to my roommates at USF in 76 and we all had a blast. Since then, I have shared a lot of life with that pirate, raised my two daughters on his songs all over the world, from Paris to Bali to Australia, and they know all the words! Thanks for the friendship, Jimmy.
Jimmy has helped me out in a many a ways. 1) Landing a perfect wife.2) Divorcing said perfect wife!! 3) Also there when my twins were conceived!!4 ) H e l p e d me pick myself back up after baby-momma drama!! 5)Also was playing in the car when not just one but 2 DWI'S were occured.6) Between Jimmy and José Cuervo together I developed liver failure in '07. But like he says, We are the people our parents warned us about!!! Life has its ups n downs ya just gotta enjoy the ride wherever it takes you.......

On Jimmy Buffett TIME!!!! :)
Jimmy was the icing on the cake to a renegade teenager growing up on the gulf coast! No matter where I am or how I feel, Buffett's music brings me around. Phins UP!
Jimmy gets a big part of the blame for my desire to move to Florida. BTW, it has just become reality.
One of the best: his country & carribean tones ans melodies make the perfect way to enjoy some time of peaceful relax, thinking, secluded time, in your own thoughts.
I love him. You can smoke a lot of weed to his music

Love Jimmy....... .

Love Jimmy, see him every year in Chicago and now also at Alpine. His music is helping me through below zero temps outside and a long workday!
Margarita ill best song ever
What? No mention of his 2013 album? Songs from St. Somewhere? Great concert, great album - has a variety of 'tropical' flavors, from South American to Caribbean

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you have started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works
LOVE him..met him once at Margaritavil l e , Key West. moved there. been following him since 1974. Saw him then at Western Carolina U..then again in '78 when Margaritavil l e was BIG. Seen him several times since. Hard to get tickets these days! His music always makes you feel warm, even in the winter
Parrot Head Nation: Everyone meet up at the nearest margaritavil l e tommorrow.
jimmy's music led me to explore the islands. love that life. finally shook hands with him in 2011. all I can say is Thank You. Teach our youngsters.
