The vastly underrated (in the UK anyway) Jimmy Buffett releases another live album of classic songs. Every song is superb - from his cover of the Steven Stills song "Southern Cross", his version of Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl" to his own "Margaritaville" (with a lost verse that I've never heard before) and others. If you want to hear something new then get this album. Everyone in this country should listen to Jimmy Buffett - if they did this world would be a far better place. And if you don't like this album? Then there is simply no hope for you!

Jimmy Buffett is one of the biggest and highest grossing artists in the USA, he is a huge name plays all over the country in huge arenas, the larger venued in Begas, along with the wonderful Coral Reefers Band. Here is a live gig that is just a party from start to finish, full of great songs that somehow we in the UK have largely missed and that quite simply is our loss.This man has a large business empire from restaurants, clothing, to Mailboat his personal record company. The name Margeritaville is synonimous with him and is also the title of one of his most popular songs.If he was invited to Glastonbury he would be massivelly popular there, such is his stage presence and quality as an artist.He covers a large range of music from rock to country, from soul based songs to acoustic beauty.This disc covers a good range of his songs, and be aware that his biggest fans are known as finheads and they wear hats with fins on, all part of the areas he lives and has his business's in. There's on this set a cracking version of Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl, that becomes a real sing a long with the audience joining in. This album has grown more on me the more I've played it, great music,wonderful atmosphere, an artist and band at the very peak of their careers having a good time that we can share with them.Get one Jimmy Buffett record and your bound to get more,a truly superb performer on a set I can't praise highly enough...just get it and join the party.

just got back from Las Vegas where i ate at Margaritaville restaurant. They were playing Jimmy Buffet music, until then i had never heard of him (coming from England he's not known.) As soon as i got home i bought a CD of Jimmy Buffet Live. Absolutely brilliant this was the best CD as it had most of his well known songs on it and as it was live, felt like i was at the concert singing along. Highly recommend this to cheer yourself up.
