Studio albums

Post by Ilph »

Hey, I'm looking for a little help here. I've got Jimmy's greatest hits and the live albums. But now I want to get into his studio albums. What would be your choice for Jimmy's best studio album for a first timer to get? Thanks.

I like Barometer Soup, a relatively newer Jimmy album. The tropical sounds are stunning. If you want to go older, I would agree with A1A. You really can't miss.

If you're only looking for one or two then A1A, Changes In Lattitudes Changes In Attuitudes, Banana Wind and Floridays are some great places to start. But like somebody else said, just get them all. :D

Get at least one from each decade

1970's-A1A
1980's-Floridays
1990's-Barometer Soup
2000's-Far Side of the World

After you get these, just pick and choose which ones to buy, with the goal of eventually having them all.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I do already have Far Side of the World and love it! I'm currently bidding on Gruitckes, Barometer Soup, Banana Wind, White Sport Coat, and Boats, Beaches, Bars and Ballads on Ebay. (God, I love that site) My hope is to get a new album every month or so, eventually getting them all.

I would have to agree with Barometer Soup. I think this shows the full range of a Buffett album. I would follow that up with Banana Wind then a rum and coke, then A-1-A then another rum and coke and then finally finish with another rum and coke!

I would totally agree with this but I would change Far Side to Beach House on the Moon.. just a personal preference.
When they run you out of town make it look like you are leading the parade.

If you were leaning to Fruitcakes keep leaning. It is great :D

Here's an idea though. Get them all in chroniclogical (sp?) order.

It is how us old phart Buffett fans had to get them.
Please don't say manana if you don't mean it.

I would sugest Meet me in Margaritaville. A good " taste " of all his stuff both new and old. Might also want to invest in the box set Beaches, bars, ballads ( my favorite ) and boats.

Those 2 would pretty much cover it all

You had to be there is also a classic

I love gods own drunk :D

Once again, thanks for everyone's information. I now own SYKBH, Feeding Frenzy, Barometer Soup, Banana Wind, The Boxed Set, Christmas Island, Tuesdays Thursdays and Saturday Nights, Far Side of the World, Meet Me in Margaritaville, and Live in Cincinatti. I've got a list of albums I'm keeping an eye out for when I get a chance to buy a few more. Thanks, guys.
