Product Description


Jimmy Buffett may have made his millions, but that doesn't mean that he has eased up on his workload. After releasing 33 albums, mounting grueling annual tours, and fashioning an entire industry and lifestyle out of his signature song "Margaritaville," Buffett trots out this two-CD collection. Yet, Meet Me in Magaritaville, which spans 30 years, isn't merely a retread of his long, storied career. Buffett has written two new songs for the package and re-recorded six alternative versions of fan favorites (including a moving version of "The Captain and the Kid," which he included for his ailing father, who died shortly after the album's release). He's also added two new cover songs--a spicy bossa nova version of Fred Neil's "Everybody's Talking" and the Beach Boys' "Sail on Sailor"--as well four live tracks, which shows the singer at his best, conjuring up his own Yuppie Atlantis, an idyllic place where no one has to wear shoes, the sun is always shining, the bar never closes, and Junior Mints are always available at every cinema. A must-have collection for every Parrothead (or aspiring Parrothead), if only for Buffett's track-by-track descriptions. --Jaan Uhelszki

Product Description

Jimmy's waiting with a tall cold one and 38 tracks on 2 CDs, including 12 unreleased tracks featuring six alternate versions (Son of a Son of a Sailor) , four new live recordings and two brand-new songs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jimmy collection is great, but why ... July 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Did he have to go and change the lyrics to some of his classic songs?? I nearly spit my margarita all over myself when I tried singing along to Volcano and realized I couldn't. The "I don't want to land in ..." part has been changed and I think it blows. There are other songs that Jimmy felt the need to update and they also blow -- or more accurately, compromise the integrity of the orginal recording. Ugh. It just feels dirty.
Jimmy, why on earth would you do this? If you were going to change around some of your work, why not go back to any of your albums from the late 80s and remove the gawd-awful synth or drum machines?
All that aside, the collection is good for the casual Jimmy fan. It expands upon "Songs You Know By Heart" and gives a much wider range of his music through the years. The song selection is strong enough to garner three stars and if you do not own any other albums, this isn't a bad place to start.
However, if you're already going to spend $29 on a Jimmy collection, go with the box set.

This product is not one of Jimmy's best releases. Although it includes most of the better tunes by Jimmy it misses the BOAT! on sound quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buffett Fans Can't Go Worng July 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best collections of Buffett songs available. It is one not to be missed. It isn't as comprehensive as Boats, Beaches, Bars & Ballads but it has as good a selection of Buffett's best songs as any. And for the difference in price of the two collections you can't go wrong with The Ultimate Collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it April 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
OK, I admit it. I'm a second generation parrothead. I grew up on these songs. But these are some of Buffett's best. I was a bit annoyed that "Boat Drinks" wasn't on here, or "Desdemona's Building a Rocket Ship," or "Happily Ever After (Every Now and Then", but you know, 2 CD's will only hold so much. This CD's great, especially for new parrotheads. But I do have to argue with one person who reviewed a different CD and called Buffett country. There is no genre for him...he is himself, and that's it.

5.0 out of 5 stars pretty darn good Feb. 5 2004
By rylett
Format:Audio CD
i get the point that JB's rants against corporate capitalism may be a bit hypocritical. i also understand that JB has relied quite a bit on "greatest hits" collections. i own all of his releases, but none of his collections. i have chosen not to purchase any of his collections, until now.
despite all of this, i still think jimmy is the best and i did spring for this 2 CD set and i think it is pretty darn good. it has a nice representation of all of his songs. yeah sure, there are a few songs i would prefer over others, but so what? if there is a better version, of a song, that i would rather hear, i take that CD along and listen to that version.
thinking people would have to admit that JB has a much larger repetoire than most entertainers. he keeps packing people into his concerts, and they are purchasing his merchandise. yes, he has become more commercialized since the old days. he has adapted and become successful which is what most people strive to accomplish. some people might say he "sold out". what would you do, or, what have you done with your life?
i became a fan in 1978 when i purchased son of a son of a sailor. then, i went back and purchased all of his previous stuff. i still prefer anything up to, and including son of a sailor, but there are good songs on every release.
i recommend this set and any other CD of jimmy's that has your favorite version of your favorite song. i have my favorites, as well.
