Jimmy Buffett “A1A”

I really want to like this album, just because it’s (1974) before he got famous for all those cheeseburger in paradise hit songs, and I like the cover so much. It’s named after Highway A1A in Florida– the front is a photo album snapshot of JB sitting on a beach under a palm tree with a bottle of Michelob next to him. The back is a big, hazy photo of the side of the road with the A1A sign– no doubt in the Florida Keys with the Gulf of Mexico in the background. Inside is a CHART of the Florida Keys with snapshots of JB sailing, sunburned, drunk, stoned. He’s essentially a country singer who lived in Key West, really into his lyrics, but with a weakness for novelty lyrics that are sometimes really corny. But if every song was as good as “Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season” this would be a great album.
