Jimmy Buffett - "You Had to be There" Disclaimer: I am not a huge Buffett fan. Don't get me wrong, his songs are great and are exactly right for the CD mixes I bring on tropical dive trips. But I have not bought into his Corporte Conglomerate, branding efforts to own or co-op all things sun, surf, and sailing. But on a stay-at-home snow day like today in Chicago - I did want to get something up here as a distraction from the 4 foot snow drifts out my back door. To me, if JB had stopped making new songs after this record - he still would remain awesome. The liner notes begin with JB writing, "There's nothing to this show business gig. After twelve years and ten albums I enjoy remembering some of the moments in the history of the Coral Reefer madness that still make it fun." This period (pre-1978) is/was his best. His new stuff...not so much. This is a full and excellent double-live album. I love the show opening with Son of Son. Bigger JB fans and experts, Parrot Heads like my pal Bill C. - are the songs he made after this record as good or better than his classics on this album?
