Jimmy Buffett (Vinyl)
Singer/songwriter/author Jimmy Buffett has become a legend of popular culture as the composer of such classic songs as "Margaritaville," "Come Monday" and "Cheeseburger In Paradise." He has recorded over forty albums, most of which have gone gold, platinum or multi-platinum. His sold-out concert tours are an annual rite of summer for his legions of fans, affectionately known as Parrotheads, many of whom are professionals by day and who dress in spectacular and outrageous tropical outfits and headwear when Jimmy comes to town.
Born in the Gulf Coast town of Pascagoula, Mississippi, he was raised in Mobile, Alabama. He is a fourth-generation sailor and fisherman, a pilot, a surfer, and a frequent traveler to remote and exotic places of the world, having become addicted to National Geographic magazine as a child. The lyrics to many of his songs are influenced by his travels all over the globe.
As a best-selling author, he is one of only nine authors in the history of the New York Times Bestseller List to have reached #1 on both their fiction and non-fiction lists. Jimmy has received two Grammy nominations, numerous Country Music Association awards and was the recipient of one of the nation's highest songwriting honors when he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall Of Fame.

Jimmy Buffett's License to Chill is a collection of some of the singer/songwriter's favorite songs. The man who routinely packs arenas with tens of thousands of merry revelers occasionally slips unannounced into bars to play. And when he does, he draws from a different repertoire than "Margaritaville" and the rest of the songs that have made him so famous.
His "bar gig" songs, as he calls them, include Jerry Garcia's "Scarlet Begonias," the Hank Williams classic "Hey Good Lookin'," Don Gibson's chestnut "Sea of Heartbreak," Guy Clark's "Boats to Build and the Leon Russell tropical charmer "Back to the Island." These Buffett favorites have never found their way onto any of his recordings. Until now.
Those five tunes, as well as five Buffett originals and contributions from such acclaimed songwriters as John Hiatt, Bruce Cockburn and Bill Withers, among others, complete the record. Once he'd assembled the song stack, he called country superstars Alan Jackson, Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, Martina McBride, George Strait and Clint Black and asked if they'd like to record with him in Key West. Additional collaborations with the legendary Bill Withers and songstress Nanci Griffith soon followed. Jimmy's seven solo performances round out the 16-song set.

Original Broadway Cast Recording of Escape to Margaritaville, the new musical, features the songs of iconic singer-songwriter-author Jimmy Buffett. Recorded in Chicago, the album will be released on Friday, February 16, 2018, the morning of the show’s first Broadway performance.
The Escape to Margaritaville Cast Recording is produced by Mailboat Records, Mike Utley, Mac McAnally, and Christopher Jahnke.
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.
