Buffett Releasing ‘Buried Treasure’ Album of Lost and Found Songs

October 5th, 2017


It was over six years ago that Jimmy Buffett teased a release called “Buried Treasure,” a collection of songs from his earliest days that were lost and had been found. You may have given up on this project, but it’s officially coming out in a month!

When legendary Nashville producer Buzz Cason sold his recording studio to John and Martina McBride, there was some cleaning up to do. That is when Jimmy learned that they had found a sizable collection of 1⁄4-inch tapes that were the demos of songs Jimmy had written and recorded for Buzz when he was writing for his publishing company. It turned out that there were over 125 songs in that pile of tape boxes. Also discovered were the original first recordings Travis Turk had engineered in Mobile, and that is where the whole story of Buried Treasure starts.

Track Listing:

Don’t Bring Me Candy
Circle Is Small
Abandoned On Tuesday
I Can’t Be Your Hero Today
Rickety Lane
Wino Has Something to Say
California Dreamin’
The Gypsy
Hopelessly Gone
Simple Pleasures
Close the World At Five

‘Buried Treasure’ will be released on November 17th, 2017. It’s available for pre-order now at Mailboat Records and at Amazon.

A deluxe package is also available that includes a 40-page Collector’s Book with Never-Before-Seen Photos, Bonus DVD 20-Minute Documentary with New Interviews.

‘Tis The SeaSon Debuts on Charts

November 10th, 2016


Billboard reports on the chart success of Jimmy Buffett’s latest music offering, the holiday album Tis The SeaSon:

Jimmy Buffett’s ‘Tis the Season enters Top Country Albums at No. 6 (10,000), marking his 15th showing on the list and seventh top 10. Buffett last landed on Top Country Albums with 2007’s Live at Texas Stadium with Alan Jackson and George Strait. His most recent solo album to place on the chart was 2006’s Take the Weather With You, his second leader; License to Chill led in 2004. Buffett first hit the Top Country Albums top 10 with Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, which peaked at No. 2 in 1977.

(Before appearing on Billboard’s charts, Buffett learned firsthand how they work: he was Billboard’s Nashville correspondent following his graduation from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1969.)

‘Tis the Season is Buffett’s second holiday LP. He released his first 20 years ago: Christmas Island sailed to No. 27 on the Billboard 200 in December 1996. (The two releases were perhaps predetermined: he was born Dec. 25, 1946.)
