UMe is celebrating the unforgettable work of the late great Jimmy Buffett with newly remastered vinyl reissues of some of his most classic records. Several titles will be released every month this summer for a total of 10 albums that stretch over three decades, including three albums released in the 1990s making their debut on vinyl for the first time and many of his ‘70s and ‘80s records returning to vinyl for the first time in more than four decades. Each release will be available on standard black vinyl and limited edition colored vinyl.

The vinyl releases start on June 7 with a trio of albums: Living and Dying in 3/4 Time (1973), One Particular Harbour (1983), and Fruitcakes (1994). Buffett’s fourth album, Living and Dying in 3/4 Time marked Buffett’s debut in the charts, giving him his first Top 40 hit single, “Come Monday,” breaking into Billboard’s Hot 100.

Arriving July 12 is the second trio of vinyl releases – A White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean (1973), Havana Daydreamin’ (1976), and Banana Wind (1996). Featuring the hit singles “Grapefruit – Juicy Fruit” and “Why Don’t We Get Drunk,” A White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean helped introduce Buffett to a national audience. Havana Daydreamin’ became a breakout album, reaching No. 65 on Billboard Top 200 and No. 21 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums.
