What was the first Jimmy Buffett album that you bought?

Post by ParrotHeadInThe Making »

Okay, this topic more than likely has been visited before, but I am going to revisit it again.

What was the first JB album that you bought?

I bought my first 3 JB albums in one day. Last Labor Day weekend I bought Meet Me In Margaritaville, A1A, and Take The Weather With You. My JB collection has grown by leaps and bounds since then.

I know what you mean about it kind of getting out of hand. In the past month I have made Amazon very happy with me by getting 6 or 7 JB albums. This is one thing that can get out of hand, and it is a lot of fun.

The first one that I got a "copy" of was Feeding Frenzy. The first one I bought was Fruitcakes when it was released.
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Life is short, live long!!

I'd rather be a wiseass than a dumbass.

A friend of mine had SYKBH and made a copy for me--after that I was hooked. The first one I bought myself (about a week after getting SYKBH) was Feeding Frenzy. After that I soon bought Fruitcakes, which was a new release at the time. It was all downhill from there. 8)

For me it was the Yellow Album, and then my collection blossomed after that. I was fortunate and went to a Half Price Book store where they carry cd's and someone had to of been getting rid of their collection and I picked up about seven other ones soon after that. Only missing a few now.

The yellow album for me as well-recommended by friends taking me to my first concert who told me "this is all you need to know".

Went from there to the boxed set, and then the individual albums.

My first JB "album" was the FM Soundtrack. Odd choice and not his I know but it was really the first album that I heard him on and I've loved Livingston Sat. Night ever since!
