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

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

Best songs to play at the beach
I can't wait to see Jimmy again this summer at Blossom! He is always the highlight of my summer. I love seeing him in PA but I'm glad he's finally going to be close to my home this year! My friends and I get so excited about our concert preparations , that we feel like little kids that can't sleep on Christmas Eve!
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.

Woman Going Crazy On caroline Street brings back great memories. Love the old buffet and the stories in the songs.
I have been a fan since 1973 and hearing Grapefruit-J u i c y f r u i t for the very 1st time. I was a senior in high school and very impressional but his music has been a constant in my life for 40 yrs now. I laid eyes on JB and fingers Taylor at Mother Blues in Dallas,TX in '74 and I was hooked! Last year was my 42nd show and it's always like the 1st time. The show and the party in the parking lot is my Christmas every year. Rock on Jimmy I'll keep coming as long as you keep touring.
ones in Margaritavil l e are probably complaining about 40 degree temp>>>they ought to try MINUS 40 on
Buffett see him every year at Alpine and 20 years before
Mucho bueno
His music makes me feel good!
Jimmy Buffett makes everything better.
One of my best concert and reason for first tattoo "wasting away again in margarita ville and nothing to show but this bright new tattoo"

Don't read this because it actually works. You will
Buffet Music is not just music but a doctrine for a way of life & living. I could teach several college courses based solely on his music. Poet, singer, writer, HERO! Jimmy for President.
landing in fla 11:30 sat night. JB JD and Fla. Yeah mon!
Just saw Jimmy in Las Vegas last Saturday night! What a great show!!!!
Well, money means something to him now...
these similar artists are not similar. I see no connection between James Taylor and Jimmy except Homo Sapiens.
Jimmy Buffett please do more concerts
I just love him he is my #1 favorite singer love him LOVE JIMMY BUFFETT
There is no Genre for Buffett's music. I call it Gulf Coast Country. Similar artists Zac Brown? James Taylor? As my 4 yr old G-daughter puts it, Ya gatta be kiddin' me! I never get tired of listening to his music.

Saw Jimmy for the first time in 1978 at a free concert on the lawn under the stars at the University of Florida. Since then, I have lived my entire memory of life with his songs pour through my brain. LIFE IS GOOD!
It is must to go to his concerts early because the party outside is as good as the one earlier. P.S. The party outside starts at noon in the parking lot.
God

Bless

took my son to his first concert at the open air theater at San Diego State. His fav was Cheeseburger in Paradise it was in 1988! I had already seen him 7or 8 times already.
Great Entertainer

Jimmy Buffett has so many great songs on literally dozens of albums and I own most of them. But they're at home and I'm in the desert. Why does Pandora play Five O'clock Somewhere to the near exclusion of any other Buffet song? Cmon guys. Let's dig a little deeper into that catalog.
