Written by on April 14, 2010 in CD / DVD Releases, News To Shout About! - Comments Off on JIMMY BUFFETT releases ENCORES…


Jimmy Buffett will release for the first time ever, a new live acoustic double CD called Encores. This unique collection, recorded in different cities in the U.S. as well as Paris during the 2008/2009 tour, is comprised of the intimate final encore songs at the end of each concert. It features 22 songs, 12 of which are Jimmy performing solo acoustic and the rest with band members or special guests. It is unlike anything he’s released before.

In the accompanying booklet, Jimmy compares great shows to a delicious meal, with the encore being the dessert.  “Encores is a collection of well known and not so well known songs that I think provide a happy ending to a musical meal….and dessert has always been my favorite…I had this idea that we should offer a little more in the way of dessert than we had done in previous years. This collection of ‘lasts’ is a first in a way. In putting it together, my original thought was to just make a collection of these moments. Once assembled and listened to as a set, it came to me, that it is probably the longest encore in history; but in these difficult days in difficult times, maybe a whole bunch of happy endings is really not a bad thing.”

Encores arrives April 20th and is available only at Walmart stores, Walmart.com, Margaritaville retail stores and Margaritaville.com. 30 seconds of each song is now available for preview at walmart.com, margaritaville.com and mailboatrecords.com.
