Thus, "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes," marked the end of his classic period and was the transition album to the persona he was in the process of becoming, so even the album title works in that sense.
Nevertheless, the music on this album is terrific. You could exclude "Margaritaville," too, and it'd still be great. The title tune is one of them, as are "Wonder Why We Ever Go Home," "Banana Republics," concert fave "Tampico Trauma," "In the Shelter," Miss You So Badly," and the great cover of the Jesse Winchester opus, "Biloxi," in my humble opinion, one of his best ever recordings. It's Jimmy at his balladeering best.
On this album, the Coral Reefer Band comes into it's own, too. The Nashville Cats who were his sidemen on previous albums aren't featured as Coral Reefers anymore and Don Gant has been replaced by Norbert Putnam as the producer. Although the personnel of the Reefers has changed over the years (Mr. Utley being the last of the early Reefers still around), Buffett eschewed the steel guitar in his sound, moving to a contemporary rock sound -- including experimenting with instruments not normally heard on rock tunes -- and "Margaritaville," is the classic example of this change in musical direction.Read more ›
I really wish that Jimmys new label would re-release all his work from the 1970's and into the 1980's with all the original album artwork back. MCA released these albums and stripped all the artwork and liner notes and did a pretty crappy job on the packaging. That said, this is still an essential for fans of Jimmy Buffett's music. Put this album on, give it a spin and "Drink it Up".
