Springtime means the Big Kahuna is going on tour and a Jimmy Buffett tour means it's time to break out the flip-flops, tropical party favors, the Margarita machine and Buffett's latest album.
Parrotheads (Jimmy's fans) are lining up for "Live at Texas Stadium," recorded with George Strait and Alan Jackson during their 2004 stadium mega- show in Irving.
During their long careers, Jackson, Strait and Buffett have separately released over "85 number one singles, and sold more than 120,000,000 records," according to a press release from MCA-Nashville, the record's distributor.
Although Buffett is famous for "Margaritaville," he actually got his start in country music, working in Nashville during the late 1960s. It wasn't until good friend Jerry Jeff Walker took him to Key West that Buffett discovered the island point of view, his considerable song writing skills and developed his happy, laid back style of music.
Buffett and Strait team up on three cuts, "All My Ex's Live in Texas," Hank Williams' "Hey, Good Looking" and "Sea of Heartbreak." Strait's smooth vocal styling is the perfect foil for Buffett's world-weathered sound.
If you're from the 50s or even the early 60s and you grew up in the south, Jimmy and King George's cover of the Don Gibson hit "Sea of Heartbreak" might evoke memories of a Saturday night when your parents were going out on the town. They were all dressed up, with Hi-Fi playing the latest dance tune. Cha-cha-cha.
Of course, Buffett and Jackson do a great turn on the Grammy-nominated "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere," their huge 2003 hit.Read more ›
This is a perfect, laid back, summertime tailgating outing. Nothing too serious, much tongue in cheek as the three headliners comprise the perfect mutual admiration society. Everyone one stage is having fun, the audience is having a good time as you will in the comfort of your home or your truck.
The stars came out to play and now all you need to complete the fun is some fried chicken, greasy burgers and beer and a pitcher of margaritas and count the days until summer.
This is a great CD if you enjoy these musicians. "Murder On Music Row" is a good old fashioned sounding country song and makes references I don't get to the business, but I understand the context.
"All My Ex's Live In Texas"...ah yes. Great song, and more fun with Buffett adding some spice to it. Great version.
"Sea Of Heartbreak" An undiscovered classic from Buffett. He knows its a good song, I know it is, and you will when you hear it.
"Margaritaville", "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere"....these had to be on there, and It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere is better live like this. Actually its better if you're in the arena...
A lot of good music, the show is very energetic and the songs fit together well. I highly recommend this disc.
Was it a marketing ploy to issue the CD first and then just when the dust settled YES! YES! Those who bought......... it's now available on DVD!
But then again something to look forward to --maybe?

Not a lot to say, only if i am feeling blue, I play this album and it does wonders.
I would love to hear this as a SACD or DVD-Audio.
There's not much I can add to the other 5-star reviews. These 3 guys clearly had one fine time doing this concert and it comes across in spades. Read morePublished on January 12, 2009 by R. Gale
