Jimmy Buffett on tour is presented by Corona Extra.
Jimmy Buffett has written and sung songs which are now part of our collective memory. And he has made a world of open roads, sailboats, rental cars and bars set against a curiously romantic fleabag vista where people bunch up to face the empty sea. When Texas, coconuts, Florida, sharks, nymphomaniacs, Montana, volcanos, and pirates land in one spot, we understand that worlds do in fact collide.
Beyond that, Buffett has peopled this region with characters ranging from hammock dwellers dragged down by memories, fellow travellers with no memories, honored ancestors, poets, and smugglers run down by their own history like rabbits caught in the headlights. Finally, one of the figures in the drama is “Jimmy Buffett” who is mostly, but not exactly Jimmy Buffett, a man with more camouflage than a Green Beret commissary.
This album shows that the sun has been coming up on Buffett’s world for a long time and among the shadows stand songs and people who are here to stay.
