He has a devoted base of fans known as “Parrotheads”.

Saturday 12am ET: Feature LP: Jimmy Buffett – Meet Me in Margaritaville: The Ultimate Collection (2003)

Meet Me in Margaritaville: The Ultimate Collection is a Jimmy Buffett greatest hits compilation album consisting of 2 compact discs and 38 songs. Released April 15, 2003.  The album is notable for several newly recorded and updated versions of songs considered as classics in his repertoire. Missing from the mix is fan-favorite and concert-standard “Boat Drinks”.

This collection presents 12 new recordings. As this is a career retrospective and aimed at a more casual audience, the album met criticism due to a quarter of the material being new recordings rather than focus on the original incarnations of the songs.

The following six songs are re-recordings of previously released songs: “The Captain and the Kid”, “He Went to Paris”, “In the Shelter”, “Knees of My Heart”, “Saxophones”, and “Son of a Son of a Sailor”. The new version of “Son of a Son of a Sailor” is a duet with Nadirah Shakoor’. The following four songs are new live recordings: “Desperation Samba (Halloween in Tijuana)”, “Holiday”, “The Pascagoula Run” and “A Pirate Looks at Forty”. Buffett also newly recorded two covers: “”Everybody’s Talkin'” by Fred Neil (but made famous in a recording by Harry Nilsson) and The Beach Boys’ “Sail On Sailor”. Despite being included as the original studio version, “Volcano”‘s fourth verse has been rewritten and overdubbed.
