It was over six years ago that Jimmy Buffett teased a release called “Buried Treasure,” a collection of songs from his earliest days that were lost and had been found. You may have given up on this project, but it’s officially coming out in a month!

When legendary Nashville producer Buzz Cason sold his recording studio to John and Martina McBride, there was some cleaning up to do. That is when Jimmy learned that they had found a sizable collection of 1⁄4-inch tapes that were the demos of songs Jimmy had written and recorded for Buzz when he was writing for his publishing company. It turned out that there were over 125 songs in that pile of tape boxes. Also discovered were the original first recordings Travis Turk had engineered in Mobile, and that is where the whole story of Buried Treasure starts.

Track Listing:

Don’t Bring Me Candy
Circle Is Small
Abandoned On Tuesday
I Can’t Be Your Hero Today
Rickety Lane
Wino Has Something to Say
California Dreamin’
The Gypsy
Hopelessly Gone
Simple Pleasures
Close the World At Five

‘Buried Treasure’ will be released on November 17th, 2017. It’s available for pre-order now at Mailboat Records and at Amazon.

A deluxe package is also available that includes a 40-page Collector’s Book with Never-Before-Seen Photos, Bonus DVD 20-Minute Documentary with New Interviews.
