Is the Speedo Man the only one that likes JB's 90's albums?

Post by Speedo Bob »

After reading lots of threads on this site I started to wonder a little bit, am I the only one that likes Bubba's works from the 90's and up better then any other time frame? I just feel that Fruitcakes, Barometer Soup, Banana Wind, and Far Side of the World are JB's best albums of all time. There is just something about these albums ( especially the first 3) that makes me want to slam on my Speedo and have a party with my friends, even though I do not really have any friends. Anyways do any of you agree with me.
The Speedo Man is 43 years old, 100 ibs overweight, suffers from male pattern baldness, old Bobby boy here cannot get a date if his life depended on it, and the Prince Of Bluberness still lives with his parents.

I agree with you on 3 out of the 4...Barometer Soup is not high on my list though and Banana Wind wasn't initially (however it became one of my favorites over the years)

I like those albums but prefer the early ones best.

I like the new stuff, but I grew up listening to him in the 70's so it's just not the same for me. From your list, Fruitcakes is the one album I would include on my list of favorites.

Truly was our night to win
But the authorities insist on my leaving
Take care my American friend

I'm not sure I like any era better than any other. I'll slam on a Speedo and be your friend to just about any JB album! Although, I have to admit that the 90's albums have more songs on them that deflate my speedo bulge than the earlier ones. :P

Bob, just wanted to say the whole speedo thing makes me a little nervous. :wink:

But in regards to the 90's music. In all of Jimmys music, there really is only a few songs that I don't care for all that much. The rest of it I can listen to over and over and over again, much to my wife's dismay.

Oh what the hell Bob, I'll find my speedo and join you in partying Buffett style anytime. :D
I've got coastal confessions and a few more, how about you?

I LIKE THOSE ALBUMS BUT PREFER A1A OVER ANYTHING ELSE HE'S EVER DONE

some of jimmy 80's stuff was a little out of whack (homemade music) his early stuff, and the newest stuff is the best. Barometer soup is awesome, the title track is great, barefootchildren, and his mexico cover carry the album.

FSOTW is one of my favorite CDs, as are Banana Wind and Barometer Soup--so you're definitely not alone, Speedo Bob.

I love the 90's, 80's, and 70's albums each as much in and of themselves as they constantly change for me depending upon my mood and newfound position in life. :D :P :P Does that make sense??? :lol: The only one that irritates me is Beachhouse. :-? Although, it has it's moments "every now and then..." :wink:

Just for fun I ranked Jimmy's 20 studio, non-themed releases (doesn't include any live releases, compilations, themed (Christmas) or soundtracks). I also didn't include Down to Earth and High Cumberland Julilee.
Fruitcakes came in at #9, Barometer Soup #13, FSOTW #14, BW #19 and Beach House dead last at #20.

I don't have Fruitcakes, but I really enjoy Barometer Soup, Banana Wind and I think FSOTW is one of his best albums hands down.

Ilph, you've got to get Fruitcakes. It is one of his best. Strong album both musically and vocally. It was his first studio album in five years (since OTSTW). It set the tone for his "new" sound in the 90's. :D

Nobody sees the wizard! No way, no how!

And thanks for the heads up on Fruitcakes. I think that will be my next purchase.

Beach House on the Moon is possibly his worst album.
I like all of his other albums from after Off to See the Lizard though.
