Buffett to release “Buried Treasure” in November

Jimmy Buffett will release a collection of songs from the late 60’s called “Buried Treasure” on November 17, 2017. It is available at Amazon.com in two formats:
BURIED TREASURE: VOLUME 1 – STANDARD VERSION or
BURIED TREASURE: VOLUME 1 – DELUXE PACKAGE

A few years ago when legendary Nashville producer Buzz Cason sold his recording studio, there was some cleaning up to do. That’s when Jimmy learned they had found a collection of 1⁄4-inch tapes that turned out to be the original demos of songs Jimmy had written and recorded for Buzz in the late 60’s. There were over 125 songs in that pile of tape boxes. In addition to the song demos there were also the first recordings Travis Turk had engineered in Mobile, and that is where the whole story of Buried Treasure begins.

JB : “There is a reason we are calling this collection of songs and stories Buried Treasure – because they were literally buried in a closet in a recording studio in Nashville for decades. They were discovered by an old friend, Travis Turk, who actually recorded these tracks in Mobile, Alabama in 1969, and more in Nashville in the years following when we both wound up moving there. Travis eventually produced the first two albums I recorded in Nashville, as well. When we first found the tapes of Buried Treasure, I didn’t know that it would turn out to be such a unique situation where I’d actually get to honor and introduce the people who started me out.”

It will be available in standard and deluxe packaging. Both releases contain 11 acoustic tracks and song-by-song narration by Jimmy Buffett. The Standard version contains a 28 page book. The Deluxe version is a 40-page collector’s book with never before seen photos which holds the CD and a bonus 20-minute documentary DVD: The Story Behind Buried Treasure.

Buffett to release “Buried Treasure”

Jimmy Buffett is releasing an album with previously unreleased songs that he wrote between 1969 and 1973. “Buried Treasure” will be released on October 27th 2017 and is available for pre-order at Amazon.com.

From an old article in USA Today: “Jimmy Buffett unearths new (old) songs

The “Buried Treasure” project includes at least 20 original songs and perhaps some cover material Buffett recorded in Nashville between 1969 and 1973 with original producer Travis Turk. “Two years ago they were going to sell the studio we were working at and owners said go through this and see if there’s anything you can use. He found 74 original songs I forgot I had written,” Buffett says. “It’s really, right back to the beginning stuff. … I’m going back and listening to myself during these times and it’s sparking stories. I don’t remember writing a lot of these songs but once I hear them stuff starts coming back. So I’m doing a narration through this material that we found. I’m going to do that as a project. They were tape recordings they were about to throw out. Some is cover stuff, but the original stuff there’s probably about 20 songs that I had forgotten I had written. … It’s something people might want to add to their collection.”
