A Jimmy Buffett concert on a tropical island. Just walk down the beach for a once-in-a-lifetime intimate performance from Margaritaville's favorite son. That's what a few thousand fans got to experience at Jimmy's Caribbean shows on March 23 and 24, 2007. Now everyone else can, too. A double CD and an 82 minute DVD were recorded live at the Dune Preserve, Rendezvous Bay in Anguilla, in Bankie Banx's backyard and the site of famous Moonsplash Festivals. The CD's include 30 songs, all of your favorites, plus some special in-concert rarities like Domino College, Waiting In Vain, When Salome Plays the Drum, King of Somewhere Hot, Treat Her Like A Lady, and Distantly In Love. The DVD was recorded in High Definition and is in Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound.

Essential for Parrotheads!!!

"I have gradually gotten away from being a Parrothead after Banana Wind was released, but this one looked like a winner, so I bought it. These are some of the best versions of Buffet favorites that I have ever heard, thanks to the higher mix of the steel drums and the overall sound quality. There are also quite a few concert rarities, which gives a very fresh feel to these old songs. He covers his entire career on this one.
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."
Greatest Live Version Yet!!

"My wife is the "woman to blame" - she is the one that got me started listening to Buffett. We have many of his CDs, but there is nothing like hearing him live in concert. We have numerous other live CDs and DVDs. I have to say that this is the best live version due to the high audio quality. It truly sounds like you are there close to him on stage. The acoustics are the best sounding from all of his live releases. If you had to choose between any of the live versions, this would be it. The price is also great considering you get 2 CDs and a DVD. The songs he plays are oldies, but some are ones he hasn't played for a long time. Truly one of his best masterpieces!!!"
MW1813's Review of Live In Anguilla

"I received my copy yesterday (11/6). I immediately listened to both CDs and later watched half of the DVD. I had to go to bed at a decent hour. I had mixed feelings about the music at first. Maybe it's because it was a smaller venue than the stadiums we're used to hearing and seeing concerts in, but I got the feeling that this was more like an "unplugged" version of a JB concert. Jimmy and the band sounds great but the songs were very much like the recorded versions. There just wasn't that much improvising and ad-libbing as on previous live recordings. I don't think it's because Jimmy is slowing down, more like playing to a smaller crowd, maybe. In any case, I still enjoyed the CDs and the video is worth the price alone. Phins up!
