Jimmy Buffett’s newest Margaritaville opened on Grand Cayman last week. Cayman Net News has an article on the opening: “Margaritaville opens in Grand Cayman”.

The newest attraction in Grand Cayman opened its doors to the public last week and reportedly turned into an instant hit.

Following on the success of Margaritaville in other resorts in the Caribbean, Mexico, and the US, George Town, with its regular influx of cruise ship passengers, has been chosen for the latest addition to the chain of themed restaurants originally created and made famous by the singer and songwriter Jimmy Buffett.

Manager Arthur Screaton said the place had been a success from the moment the doors opened. He pointed out that the facilities are not just targeted at cruise shippers but are also ideal for long-stay visitors and residents looking for somewhere different to go in the evenings.

Mailboat Records’ Info on the New Album

Mailboat Records has an information page up on the new album.

Here’s the writeup:

Take The Weather With You returns Buffett back to his country foundation with breezy ballads, interpretations of alt-country songs, a version of Merle Haggard’s “Silver Wings” and mariachi horns in “Cinco De Mayo In Memphis.” A tribute to the historic bars along the Gulf Coast in “Bama Breeze” is flavored with sublime Southern riffs, and Buffett fulfilled a dream of playing with Mark Knopfler, who wrote and guests on “Whoop De Doo.”

Buffett reinvents Mary Gauthier’s “Wheel Inside The Wheel” with swampy rhythms crafted by Lafayette, Louisiana slide guitarist Sonny Landreth. “That song summed up the French Quarter when I was 18 years old,” Buffett said. “Without realizing it, I went to my roots on this record. It’s not a stretch for me to do country music.”

On Take The Weather With You, he takes a philosophical look at the devastation of the Crescent City in the ballad “Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On,” which Buffett wrote with former drummer Matt Betton. “When the storm hit New Orleans, I was performing at Wrigley Field in Chicago” said Buffett. “I go back to the emotions I was feeling on stage there during the biggest show of my life. That spilled over into this record. People still don’t understand the devastation along the Gulf Coast. I was angry and started writing about it, but Matt sent me the first makings of ‘Move On’ and that calmed me down.”

Take The Weather With You combines a variety of styles and sounds from Nashville, New Orleans and Key West. It’s a smooth sail for Buffett.
