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.
