From the show creators:

Being Jimmy Buffett fans for all our lives, we were thrilled to be asked to create a musical using his catalog of music. Having never written a musical before, we started the process of writing the story by re-listening to the songs we knew by heart, but from a totally new perspective. We listened for the stories, the characters and the emotions that could be extracted from each song. We wanted every song that was going to be sung to have a specific meaning and emotional resonance for the character who would perform it. It was our hope that the Parrotheads would enjoy these songs in a way they haven t enjoyed them in the past, and have deeper, or in some cases, completely different meanings than they had previously associated with them. And for those audience members who were not as familiar with Jimmy s music, we hoped to craft a story where the songs fit seamlessly into the narrative as if they were written after the fact. We were very happy with where we ended up with the script, but when we heard what the Music Supervisor Chris Jahnke did with the songs, we were blown away. He brought a whole new energy and dimension to the music that not only stayed true to the original songs we’ve enjoyed our whole lives, but he also made us feel like we were hearing the songs for the first time. We can only compare it to seeing an old friend in a new light and falling in love all over again. Because of that, every time we listen to this album we will be reminded how lucky we were to work with Chris Jahnke, one of the kindest, most generous and talented people we ve ever met.

– Greg Garcia and Mike O Malley

Buffett Releasing ‘Buried Treasure’ Album of Lost and Found Songs

October 5th, 2017

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.

‘Tis The SeaSon Debuts on Charts

November 10th, 2016

Billboard reports on the chart success of Jimmy Buffett’s latest music offering, the holiday album Tis The SeaSon:

Jimmy Buffett’s ‘Tis the Season enters Top Country Albums at No. 6 (10,000), marking his 15th showing on the list and seventh top 10. Buffett last landed on Top Country Albums with 2007’s Live at Texas Stadium with Alan Jackson and George Strait. His most recent solo album to place on the chart was 2006’s Take the Weather With You, his second leader; License to Chill led in 2004. Buffett first hit the Top Country Albums top 10 with Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, which peaked at No. 2 in 1977.

(Before appearing on Billboard’s charts, Buffett learned firsthand how they work: he was Billboard’s Nashville correspondent following his graduation from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1969.)

‘Tis the Season is Buffett’s second holiday LP. He released his first 20 years ago: Christmas Island sailed to No. 27 on the Billboard 200 in December 1996. (The two releases were perhaps predetermined: he was born Dec. 25, 1946.)
