Escape To Margaritaville

Post by HurricaneSeason » Sat Oct 28, 2017 11:44 am

Now with the show in New Orleans and Jimmy joining in for Margaritaville, it struck me as odd that MCA hasn't released another greatest hits compilation that would be called... Escape From Margaritaville.

Sure, it would have the usual SYKBH on it, just as Meet Me In Margaritaville did, and it's probably safe to assume that everyone that is a fan has SYKBH and possibly the box set and MMIM but it could be an updated MMIM with the original songs (SOASOAS, Volcano, He Went To Paris, APLAF), with plenty of room for other tunes from the MCA era that are not on MMIM (there are no Mailboat Records era songs on it).

Although the ultimate retrospective would be to include the Mailboat era on it if MCA were to agree with it.

Of course people would buy it - but it may not sell as well as things in the past thanks to Spotify etc and making playlists.

For example...

Escape To Margaritaville
Disc 1
Cheeseburger In Paradise
Coconut Telegraph
The Weather Is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful
Changes In Latitdues, Changes In Attitudes
Son Of A Son Of A Sailor
Boat Drinks
Havana Daydreamin'

Tin Cup Chalice
Come Monday
He Went To Paris
A Pirate Looks At Forty

Disc 2

I Will Play For Gumbo
Jamaica Mistaica
We Are The People Our Parents Warned Us About
Hey Good Lookin'
Bama Breeze
Somewhere Over China
Far Side Of The World (edit version)
Barometer Soup
Last Mango In Paris
Off To See The Lizard
Cowboy In The Jungle
Fruitcakes (edit version)
Island Fever
Something 'Bout A Boat

Well... perhaps I was on to something in a strange way - now Mailboat Records is going to release a record of the music from the musical in February.
