Jimmy has done it again

  • Mar 21, 2002
I confess: I'm a "parrothead"! Jimmy B. could sing the contents of the Manhattan telephone directory and I would buy (and most likely thoroughly enjoy) the CD. This new CD has been a long time coming, but it certainly has been worth the wait. There's the usual mixture ot styles, from the "typical" Buffett song ("Far Side of the World") to the poignant ("All the Ways I Want You") to the raucous ("Last Man Standing") to the downright silly ("Hokey-Pokey"). He also has the knack of taking other writer's songs and making them uniquely his own. It's a somewhat more contemplative album than most of his fans are used to having, but it seems his tastes (and talent) are continually evolving, which is what makes him my absolute favorite recording artist. I only wish his concert tickets were easier to obtain, so that I could attend and be part of the madness!
