As for the DVD, which I watched first, it looks like a private party for the mega rich on the most expensive island in the Caribbean. Sure, most Parrotheads could afford the $100 ticket price that 3500 lucky few managed to score, but one has to be filthy rich or just plain crazy in order to have been able to actually attend this show. Thank goodness that this was recorded for the rest of us at a bargain price. This one is a no-brainer.
I bought LIVE IN ANGUILLA as a gift for my wife. I had heard the very mediocre LIVE AT WRIGLEY FIELD, which features a horrible sound mix and a lackluster performance, and I was suspicious about whether I would be wasting my money on ANGUILLA. I read the mostly-positive reviews here, and I decided to take a chance.
This album reminds me of everything that is good about Buffett's music. I don't know if it was the remote locale, but if that's what brings out such great performances in Buffett, he needs to start playing more obscure locations and recording them.
It's got lots of favorites,including "Changes in Latitudes...," "One Particular Harbour," "Volcano," and more. The version of "Treat Her Like a Lady" is just plain breath-taking, and "Weather With You" sounds better than the studio version. I love the muted trumpet. He also pulls out some tunes that he doesn't play often anymore, including "Carnival World."
In fact, it's the rare songs that are the real treat. The covers of The Beach Boys' "In My Room" and Marley's "Waiting in Vain" [sung by his guitarist] were huge surprises.Read more ›
Live in Anguilla is a 3-disc set (2 CDs, 1 DVD) that's packaged in a double clamshell jewel case and includes a colorful booklet. Combined, the two CDs offer 30 songs, and the sound quality is absolutely flawless. Crisp and clear, it's easy to imagine being right there in paradise enjoying this professionally casual performance.
Most of the songs feature sexy female backing vocals and a steel drum that gives the music a very nice Carribean flavor, but songs like Domino College, Fins and Cheeseburger In Paradise all rock with heavy drums and meaty electric and slide guitar solos. Mostly, this show is a laid back affair that's perfectly suited for rockers and Parrotheads who are kinda sorta grown up and well adjusted. Nobody's singing the blues here, that's for sure.
Jimmy is having a great time as usual, and his audience quite naturally adores him. Buffett is a sort of antithesis to the modern day rock star. He's a sailor, pilot, author and businessman, and many everyday adults find him much more accessible than an emotionally troubled head banger or a stage prancer wearing high heels and make up.Read more ›
