Jimmy Buffet - Take the Weather With You Review
by Sherrill Fulghum
Margaritaville's chief Parrothead has returned with a new collection of songs for the musical nomad "Take the Weather With You". The 14 songs on the album are songs of journeys, tropical venues, and the life of a nautical nomad. Parrotheads will recognize Buffet's signature tropical country sound and storytelling songs. Among the originals is "Nothin' But a Breeze" a Jesse Winchester tune previously recorded by John Denver's "Seasons of the Heart" album.
Buffet – a Mississippi native – came to Key West when the area was ruled by pirates and shrimpers. For a Storytelling songwriter like Buffet the area was a goldmine of material. Since those early days Jimmy Buffet has lived the life of a beach bum – a rich beach bum - and entertaining the world with his tales from the son of a son of a sailor. On "Take the Weather With You" Buffet sings about finally visiting a place he heard about from his grandfather's days as a sailor; "Party at the End of the World" tells of an area at the tip of South America just around the corner from Antarctica.
"Everybody's On the Phone" and Jimmy Buffet is sailing all over the world "Taking the Weather With You" a title that describes how no matter where you go, there's always the weather right there with you.
